Just before our home minister’s visit to Kashmir,Senior BJP leader Arun Shourie in the Rajya Sabha has given this speech.
Some excerpts from that speech.
The BJP,accused the Centre of depending too much on the US while dealing with Pakistan in the aftermath of the Mumbai terror attacks. “Don’t run to Mummy (the US) all the time. Pakistan is not dependent on the US, rather it is the other way round as America wants an honourable exit from the war it started in the region against terrorism and for this it needs Pakistan’s support,” BJP member Arun Shourie said in Rajya Sabha.
The situation post-Mumbai terror attacks, he said, was “treacherous and far more complex. Therefore greater effort on part of the government is required”.Arun Shourie also cautioned the government not to get involved in sending evidence about Mumbai attacks to Pakistan as “this will put it in a position of being a judge”.
Shourie said that the country needs to understand the objectives of US in the region and its compulsions. “Look at the nature of the Pakistani state. Has it changed? Look at the objectives of the US in the region and its compulsions. This will give a realistic view,” he said.
Shourie, while quoting reports about the Prime Minister’s meeting with US President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the recently held G-20 Summit in London, said that this too apparently centred around on how India can tone down the kind of reaction that emerged within the country after 26/11.
The Rajya Sabha member added that while the US is trying to restrain India from taking any aggressive stand against Pakistan, there is also a lot of pressure from Washington on New Delhi to keep peace with the neighbouring country.
