Kolkata: Senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday demanded that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should explain to the people of the country his recent talks with Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in New York even after Pakistani infiltration across the LoC.

"The Prime Minister should explain to the people of the country when there is tension at the LoC, Pak infiltrators are repeatedly crossing the border and killing our jawans, still he goes and talks with Pak Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and even after that incursions are taking place," Naidu said.

Naidu said that infiltration was taking place at the behest of Pakistan which was aiding, abetting, funding and training terrorists.

"This has become a state policy of Pakistan. We want friendly relations with all our neighbours including Pakistan provided Pakistan gives up the policy of terrorism. Terror and talks cannot take at the same time."

"We told the Prime Minister, please do not meet him now and lodge a protest, but unfortunately he chose the other path and we are seeing the result," he said.
