New Delhi: Condemning the twin terror attacks in Jammu region, BJP on Thursday said Pakistan is continuing with its strategy to strike at will through proxy war of terror and demanded that Prime Minister Manamohan Singh should not hold the proposed talks with his Pakistani counterpart.

BJP president Rajnath Singh asked why the Prime Minister is in a "hurry" to meet Nawaz Sharif. The two leaders are due to meet in New York on September 29 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

"The PM is in a hurry to start dialogue with Pakistan. There should be no talks with Pakistan unless there is a conducive environment," Singh said on a Twitter post.

"I strongly condemn the terrorist attack on the police and security forces in Jammu. The terrorists have attacked India almost at will," he added. The BJP has opposed the talks between the two prime ministers.

BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said the Prime Minister had himself assured the nation through both Houses of Parliament after Mumbai attack and after beheading of two soldiers that India will not hold talks with Pakistan till it takes minimal action against terror.

"But what are we seeing today that Pakistan land is being used to attack and conduct terror attacks in India," he said.

"We condemn the twin dastardly attacks. This shows that Pakistan continues on its strategy to strike at will through this proxy war of terror," he said.

Another BJP leader Yashwant Sinha maintained that the Prime Minister should not hold talks at all with Sharif.
