Accusing the Centre of suffering from "myopic vision", former BJP President Rajnath Singh today attacked the UPA government for its policy on the Kashmir issue and said the present crisis in the valley was alarming with the spread of violence to fresh areas.

"Escalating violence in Kashmir valley is threatening the political and social fabric of the state, but the Central government continues to pursue a tentative policy of Kashmir and suffers from a myopic vision in its diplomatic and strategic relations with Pakistan," Singh told reporters.

Criticising the decision of the Centre to withdraw the troops, the BJP leader claimed that about 40,000 troops were withdrawn from Jammu & Kashmir following the decision of the government when anti-India forces were looking for an opportunity to push infiltrators and terrorists in the country.

The ongoing crisis in Kashmir was an anti-India design of the Pakistan's ISI which was trying to exploit the sentiments of local people and instigating them against the Indian establishment, Singh said.

Expressing his party's solidarity with India's security forces which has shown great restraint and patience in dealing with mob fury and violence, he said, "the UPA government should formulate a resolute policy for Pakistan which has been promoting terror and hatred in India."
