`Alarm bells ringing about country`s security`

BJP president Nitin Gadkari said "alarm bells" are ringing about the security of the nation and expressed concern over the "strange atmosphere" inside and outside Parliament.



New Delhi: BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday
said "alarm bells" are ringing about the security of the
nation and expressed concern over the "strange atmosphere"
inside and outside Parliament about issues surrounding it.

"There is a strange atmosphere inside and outside the
Parliament about important issue concerning national
security...alarm bells are ringing about the security of the
nation," he said addressing a press conference.

However, he did not directly refer to the controversy
surrounding the Army Chief`s claims about the bribe offer and
his letter to the Prime Minister in which he had talked about
lack of defence preparedness.

Hitting out at the Centre over a "series of scams",
Gadkari said the slowdown in European economy had given an
opportunity to India to accelerate its growth but the UPA
government could not seize it due to "corruption and wrong
policies".

"The economic slowdown had given us an opportunity to
accelerate our growth. But because of corruption, we lost the
opportunity. We are now facing the problem of credibility in
the whole world," he said, referring to 2G spectrum scam and
alleged irregularities in hosting of the Commonwealth Games.

Alleging that "largescale corruption" and wrong policies
of the UPA were fuelling price rise and inflation in the
country, Gadkari also slammed the Centre for hiking the
Service Tax which he said would further burden the common man.
