Rajya Sabha MP Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa lashed out at the Congress-led UPA government for its alleged failure on national security front.

Speaking after the inauguration ceremony of the 66KV sub-station, Dhindsa said that repeated incursions of Chinese army in Indian borders exposed inability of centre government to man international borders.

"The government should at least ensure its residents a sense of security barring China to enter into Indian Territory repeatedly", he said.

Dhindsa said that in spite of reports of terrorist attack in Bodhgaya temple in Bihar, the Centre had not provided security or directed the respective state to beef up security in order to avoid serial bomb blast in the temple.

"Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should resign from his post on moral grounds."

Dhindsa also welcomed landmark judgement of Supreme Court regarding the disqualification of MPs & MLAs from the date of conviction.

"It will prove boon for future political scenario, if it should be implement with clean mind. It will also help to clean up the political system in country," Dhindsa said

He inaugurated 66 KV sub-stations at Kalaudi and Bhattiwal Kalan villages in Sangrur district and said that installation of such sub-centres will help improve distribution of electricity in about two dozen villages. He added that from now onwards, new thermal plants in state will start power generation ensuring a power-cut free state.
