Advani flays PM for remark on Gilani

By The Assam Tribune

CHURU (RAJASTHAN), Nov 12 � BJP leader L K Advani today flayed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for terming his Pakistani counterpart Yousaf Raza Gilani a �man of peace� and holding talks with the neighbouring country, saying it had �done nothing to curb terrorism�, reports PTI.

�The Manmohan Singh government keeps saying, as it has on many occasions said, that whether terrorism stops or not, the government would continue to talk with Pakistan...We (NDA government) had said that we do not agree to this and talks would not happen till the time Pakistan promises to stop terror,� Advani said addressing a rally here.

�Four years after the Agra summit, the Pakistani government did promise to stop terror but incidents have kept happening one after the other. But two days ago, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh gave yet another certificate to Pakistan by saying that the Pakistani Prime Minister is a man of peace,� he said.

Advani also claimed that the Atal Behari Vajpayee-led government had adopted a more firm approach while dealing with Pakistani leadership.

�We recognised Pakistan�s attitude and we thought that there should be friendship with Pakistan,� Advani said.
