Striking an aggressive posture, BJP president Rajnath Singh on Monday said if his party was voted to power then India would send troops to Pakistan to crush terrorism in the neighbouring country after taking international approval.

“If voted to power, the BJP government will ask Pakistan if it needs support of the Indian army to crush terrorism. If Islamabad is agreeable, it is all right. If not, our government will approach the global community for its endorsement to send the Indian army to Pakistan,” he told an election meeting at Airu village in Gaya.

“However, we will like Pakistan to first use its might to stamp out terrorism and dismantle all terror networks operating from its territory,” he said.

Accusing the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre of having failed to effectively check terrorism, the BJP president said terror strikes in Mumbai and elsewhere in the country bore a “testimony” to it.
