Expressing serious concern over growing ISI activities in the country, BJP President Rajnath Singh on Friday demanded that India should make all efforts to keep the Pakistani intelligence agency under "international surveillance".
"India should strive its best to ensure that ISI is kept under international surveillance to maintain peace in the country, in Asia and in the whole world," he told reporters before resuming his 'Bharat Suraksha Yatra' from this pilgrim town in Central Bihar.
Alleging that ISI was using Bangladesh soil for anti-India activities, he claimed that there were 200 terrorist camps operating in Bangladesh and said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should take immediate and effective steps to get them immobilised "before the situation becomes further alarming."
He said New Delhi should take all steps to ensure closure of all ISI training camps and any delay in this will spell disaster for the country.
Singh said it should mobilise international pressure for getting these training camps closed.
Describing Pakistan as the "terror capital of the world," he said ISI has already admitted that it was aware of the WTC attack.
To a question, Rajnath Singh said Prime Minister should tell Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf that New Delhi would have no talks with Islamabad till it stopped cross-border terrorism.
