The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Wednesday urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to review his decision to restore peace talks with Pakistan after Osama bin Laden was killed in that country, proof that it had been harbouring the world’s most wanted terrorist. “The elimination of Osama bin Laden, the global face of terror, is the high point in the global war on terror. It (Osama’s killing by US in Pakistan’s garrison town of Abbotabad) established that Pakistan is epicentre of terror and was harbouring world’s most wanted terrorist,” BJP spokesperson Arun Jaitley said. He was speaking to reporters after a core committee meeting of the opposition party that discussed the situation in the aftermath of Osama’s death.
Jaitley said the BJP believed that “Pakistan can no longer claim to be the victim of terror”.
He said the BJP had urged Manmohan Singh and the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government that they “need to retrospect on the Pakistan policy (because) talks and terror cannot go together”.
India and Pakistan recently agreed to restore their ties frozen after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.
