The BJP Sunday said the attack on Indian death row prisoner Sarabjit Singh in a Pakistani jail was an act of revenge against the hanging of terror convicts Ajmal Qasab and Afzal Guru.

A party leader said here the incident showed the union government's unpreparedness in taking precautionary measures in protecting Sarabjit Singh.

"This is a case of paralysis of the Indian foreign policy," Ravi Shankar Prasad, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, told reporters.

The BJP leader also appealed to the UPA government to call an all-party meeting on the issue of Chinese intrusion in Jammu and Kashmir.
