Nagpur: India fell short of diplomacy while dealing with the Balochistan issue during the recent prime ministerial level talks between New Delhi and Pakistan, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) charged on Monday.

"There was no need to mention Balochistan and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh must have erred somewhere. The government should maintain a transparency on the issue," RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat, told a meet the press programme, here.

"When all Opposition parties are making hue and cry over the issue, government should take corrective steps in this direction," Bhagwat said, while referring to Prime Minister's recent meeting with his Pakistan counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani at Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt.

The confusion prevailing in the minds of people must be cleared. It will be in the interest of the nation that government makes clear all doubts on the controversial Indo-Pak joint statement made in Egypt, he said.

Bhagwat said India should strengthen its internal and external security system in the wake of terror threats.

On reports of threats looming large from China, Bhagwat said, "we should improve our relationship with neighbouring countries like Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Myanmar since China will not allow India to reign supreme in the Asian continent.
