New Delhi failed to tackle cross-border terrorism, says former MP

Voicing his grief and anger over Friday's terrorist attack, former Union minister and MLA Chaman Lal Gupta said that re-occurrence of such attacks in border areas of Kathua - Ramgarh sector within a few months speaks volumes about "loopholes in security and failure of New Delhi" to tackle cross-border terrorism.

Voicing his grief and anger over Friday's terrorist attack, former Union minister and MLA Chaman Lal Gupta said that re-occurrence of such attacks in border areas of Kathua - Ramgarh sector within a few months speaks volumes about "loopholes in security and failure of New Delhi" to tackle cross-border terrorism.

Gupta said that there is dire need to review of the security arrangements and policies towards Pakistan, which has come to be "an epicenter of breeding terrorism".

He recalled that in 2003, Pakistan was made to publically commit that no soil under control of Pakistan would be allowed to be used for cross-border terrorism, but it was unfortunate that the changed dispensation at New Delhi did not maintain the required pressure on Pakistan to keep up their word.

Gupta also stressed for immediate steps to plug loopholes in the security arrangements and helping the dependents of terror attack victims.
