Kolkata: BJP on Sunday regretted Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s decision to meet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in New York despite continuing terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.

"It`s sad and most unfortunate that the PM has gone ahead with the meeting with his Pakistani counterpart despite continued cross-border terrorism emerging from PoK," BJP spokesperson and co-observer for West Bengal Siddharth Nath Singh told reporters on the sidelines of the BJP state executive committee meeting here.

"Instead the PM should have given a strong message to the Pakistan premier by not participating in the meeting," Singh said.

Singh`s meeting with Sharif today was under the shadow of recent twin terror attacks in Jammu in which 10 people, including an army officer, were killed.
