Gurdaspur terror attack: Pak must walk the talk, says BJP
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh on Wednesday said that Pakistan must 'walk the talk' on the issue of counter-terrorism
New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh on Wednesday said that Pakistan must "walk the talk" on the issue of counter-terrorism, and maintained that investigation done so far with regard to the 'heinous' Gurdaspur terror attack points towards Pakistan's involvement.
Walking the talk, he said, would decide which way Pakistan's relationship with India would move.
'Whatever the investigation has been done so far, it has been certainly leading towards Pakistan, and particularly, the GPS tracking, which shows that on July 21st, the people who came across from Pakistan, were involved in this heinous terrorist activity,' Singh told ANI.
'So, certainly the fingers are pointing towards Pakistan. And now, it's for Pakistan to walk the talk or to decide which way they want to have a relationship with India,' he added.
The BJP leader further said that talks between both sides in the wake of the recent incidents will be 'focused and terrorism centric'.
'Whatever the Government of India has to decide, they will be deciding in the interest of the country. At the same time, what is clear is whatever little talk, which will take place with Pakistan, will be focused and will be terrorism centric coming across the border,' Singh pointed out.
'Certainly, the Home Minister of India, the Defence Minister of India, have made it absolutely clear that in whatever violation that takes place across the border or on the LOC, in equal or double measures, the reply will be given by Indian forces,' he added.
As per reports, the cracking of the GPS devices found on the three terrorists, who attacked a police station in Punjab, manifests that their location on July 21 was in Pakistan. The initial reports,however, suggest that their exact locations in Pakistan were deleted from the device.
The three terrorists, who were armed with mortars and night-vision devices, apart from AK-47s, reportedly crossed the Ravi on the border and came to Dinanagar by taking the route to the railway track.
The GPS devices also showed they were activated at Talwandi Point in Gurdaspur's Parmanand village and their next target was civil lines in Gurdaspur town, around 25 km from Dinanagar.
