BJP wants debate on Indo-Pak relations on 26/11 anniversary

On the first anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack next week, BJP will demand a debate in Parliament on the progress made in the case and on the state of Indo-Pak relations.

"On the first anniversary of 26/11 attacks next week we will demand a debate in Parliament on the state of Indo-Pak relations and the progress made in the terror attack case," Deputy Leader of BJP in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said.

A notice for debate in both Houses will be put forward by the main opposition on November 26 itself.

BJP had demanded a tough government stand against Pakistan after the Mumbai terror attack once it became clear that the bosses of the perpetrators were based in Pakistan and were directing the operation from there. Even the terrorists are said to have been trained in the neighbouring country.

Lack of co-operation from Pakistan despite dossiers from India, the Indian government's agreement in Sharm-el-Sheikh to inclusion of the clause delinking composite dialogue from terror and the mention of Balochistan in the agreement gave BJP a handle to take on the UPA government.
