In the wake of 13 serial blasts in Assam in which over 40 people were killed, the BJP on Thursday alleged that a "confused government in Delhi" is responsible for the incident as it shied away from taking action against illegal Bangladeshi migrants due to its vote-bank considerations.
"This is all due to a confused government in Delhi which is undetermined and shying away from action against the terror elements. Vote-bank considerations stop them from identifying and deporting illegal Bangladeshi migrants," BJP chief Rajnath Singh told PTI.
He said terrorists have no religion and every act of terror is unpardonable and an act against humanity. It is time that the government keeps aside its political considerations and sit together with all stake holders including the opposition to evolve a national consensus on the issue.
"We condemn the blasts in Assam on Thursday. It is an act of cowardice. We extend our condolences to the families of those killed and injured in the blasts. The government should make all arrangements to ensure speedy recovery," Singh said.
These blasts are yet another example that show Congress is clueless on terror. Whether it is SIMI, HuJI or ULFA, perpetrators are known to the state. This is a direct outcome of Congress soft-pedalling terror, BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy told reporters.
