BJP no to Bangla pact New Delhi, Aug. 7: The BJP today toughened its stance on border issues and warned the government not to expect usual legislative businesses unless defence minister A.K. Antony â€œsatisfactorily clarifiedâ€ his statement on yesterdayâ€™s ambush. The message was conveyed when Manmohan Singh â€œinvitedâ€ L.K. Advani, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley this evening to coax BJP support for the long-awaited land boundary agreement (LBA) with Bangladesh and dispel concerns over resuming talks with Islamabad. Sources in the Prime Ministerâ€™s office insisted, however, that the BJP had sought the meeting. The talks came against the backdrop of allegations by some party leaders about the Centreâ€™s â€œcavalierâ€ attitude towards the Opposition on security issues. â€œWe are shocked at the governmentâ€™s casual approach on issues impinging on national sovereignty,â€ one leader said and cited a meeting held yesterday on the Bangladesh pact. The government believes support for the agreementâ€™s ratification in Parliament would go a long way in helping improve ties with the neighbour. But the BJP fears a backlash in border states Assam â€” where agreeing to the pact risks being seen as ceding land â€” and Bengal. The party also suspects the Congress might later claim it was â€œpressuredâ€ by the Opposition to push the pact through Parliament. â€œWe do not trust the Congress. After the announcement on Telangana provoked protests in Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra, senior Congress leaders were heard saying we gave in to the BJPâ€™s demand. They spread the word that had we not agreed to Telanganaâ€™s creation, the BJP would have done it if it came to power,â€ the leader contended. Fears were voiced about â€œsomething similar on the LBA (Bangla pact)â€. â€œThe moment things go wrong in India, the BJP will be blamed for endorsing the agreement,â€ the leader said. Other BJP leaders seized on the tweet of Narendra Modi, the partyâ€™s poll mascot, yesterday in which he alleged that the Congress-led UPA had left Indiaâ€™s borders vulnerable. Advani today demanded an apology from Antony over the defence ministerâ€™s statement on the Poonch ambush and warned that resuming official dialogue with Pakistan would â€œangerâ€ Indians. Parliamentary affairs minister Kamal Nath met some BJP leaders informally today and asked them what they felt were contradictions between Antonyâ€™s statement and the one issued by the defence ministry. A BJP representative who attended the meeting said they had explained the divergence to Nath. Separately, Ravi Shankar Prasad, the BJPâ€™s deputy leader in the Rajya Sabha, countered what he termed the Congressâ€™s â€œdisinformation campaignâ€ that his party was â€œusingâ€ border security issues to imperil the UPAâ€™s trophy legislation â€” the food security bill.
