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.
