BJP wants suspension of diplomatic ties with Pakistan
Jaipur, Mar 15 : The BJP today demanded suspension of diplomatic ties with Pakistan and ongoing confidence building measures with the neighbouring nation in protest against the Pakistan National Assembly's resolution on Indian Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.
Talking to mediapersons at Jamdoli on the outskirts of the city, Party president Rajnath Singh said ''There is no point in having diplomatic relations with Pakistan and hence Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan be called back.''
Expressing his anguish over the Pakistan resolution, the BJP Chief also urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to strongly condemn the resolution.
Since Mr Singh took the stance before the media at the sidelines of the the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's All India Pratinidhi Sabha, his comments also reflect the Sangh Parivar's view on the issue.
Mr Singh had reached here on Wednesday evening and since yesterday he has been attending the RSS meet.
The RSS Pratinidhi Sabha was inaugurated formally by Sangh Chief Mohan Bhagwat at the Keshav Vidhyapeeth, Jamdoli.
However, deliberations at forum and other panel levels have been held since March 19.
The meet would conclude on March 17.
