BJP seeks action on WikiLeaks report on Modi
New Delhi: Expressing concern over a WikiLeaks report that Lashkar-e-Toiba had planned to assassinate Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, BJP on Monday accused the US of "inaction on the issue" and wanted to know how the government intends to handle it.
"It is a matter of serious concern. He (Modi) is the target of both - those who call themselves secular in this country and also from Pakistan agencies," BJP leader Balbir Punj told reporters outside Parliament.
According to Information coming out of a secret State Department cable dated June 19, 2009, Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba had planned to assassinate Modi.
"The US should have convened it (information) to India. There was total inaction on the part of the US even after having the information," he charged.
Seeking a response from the government over the issue Punj said, "Government has not taken any tangible steps even after this has come to light. We will like to know from the Prime Minister that how we intend to take up the issue with the USA."
