Advani Says PM has Realised Terror Threat from Pak

Reacting to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s remarks about terror threat, senior BJP leader LK Advani has said that he was happy that Singh had realized that there is terror threat from groups based in Pakistan.

Arrived in Shimla for party’s three-day chintan baithak (brainstorming session) scheduled to begin on Wednesday, Advani told media persons: “The PM’s (Monday) statement is contradictory to what he had said earlier, but I am happy that he has realised (the threat from Pakistan).”

Singh delivered the statement while addressing chief ministers’ conference on internal security on Monday.

In his address, Manmohan Singh had said: “There is credible information of ongoing plans of terrorist groups in Pakistan to carry out fresh attacks” and warned of fresh infiltration from across the border.

Describing cross-border terrorism as “the most pervasive threat” facing India, the Prime Minister stressed the need for continuing vigilance.

Referring to the July 16 India-Pakistan joint statement in Egypt in which the prime minister had agreed to delink terror from the dialogue process between the two countries, leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Advani wondered: “Now, how will the Prime Minister make consensus on his previous statement and this statement?”

Advani, who reached the Peterhoff hotel where the chintan baithak would be held, refused to discuss anything about this meeting.
