The ruling UPA came under heavy fire from the main opposition BJP over the suspected terror attack on a train in Haryana as senior party leader LK Advani accused the Centre of "complete failure" in tackling terrorism and sought zero tolerance towards the scourge.
"The bomb blast in the train from Delhi to Attari itself goes to show that terrorists are still operating and are in command. The UPA government's approach lacks a concerted policy to tackle terrorists," hesaid from Pantnagar in Uttarakhand.
The BJP leader also referred to National Security Adviser MK Narayanan's recent comments in Munich about manipulation of stock markets by terror groups to generate funds, calling them a matter of serious concern.
He flayed the UPA for scrapping POTA and accused it of attempts to save Parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal from execution.
"The BJP feels that the UPA government should adopt zero tolerance policy against terrorism," he remarked.
