Demand to ban Bajrang Dal to distract attention: BJPOctober 6th, 2008 - 9:42 pm ICT by IANS
Lucknow, Oct 6 (IANS) The sole intention of some parties demanding a ban on the Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) was to distract public attention from increasing cases of terrorism, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has alleged.”The Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government has failed to contain terror activities. As a result, they are now unnecessarily demanding a ban on our organisations,” Uttar Pradesh BJP spokesperson H.N. Dixit told reporters here Monday.
He referred to Azamgarh, home to the two suspected terrorists killed in the Jamia Nagar shootout last month for their alleged involvement in the Sep 13 serial bombings in Delhi, and said, “Chief Minister Mayawati must convene an all-party meet to formulate a strategy to combat terror.”
