"Relations are not good with Pakistan, Myanmar and other
neighbouring countries. But good only with Bangladesh", Advani
said, addressing a public rally in Guwahati as part of his
Jana Chetna Yatra.
"Two days before the prime minister went to Bangladesh
(in September), many of my party leaders and I were invited to accompany him. But we were not told that Assam's land would be given to Bangladesh.
"If we knew Assam's land was being given away we would
have protested before the land agreement was signed between
the two countries," the BJP leader said.
The Centre had said that Bangladesh land in adverse
possession of India in some enclaves had been given away. "But
even such land cannot be given away without the approval of
the Parliament," he said.
"We will ask 'hisab' (account) on it and on Bangladeshi
infiltration into Assam from the government in the Winter
Session of Parliament. Enough is enough," Advani said.
BJP general secretary Ravi Shankar Prasad said people
across the country are "very angry" with corruption and are
also disgusted with price rise and that is why people have
responded to Advani's Yatra.
Guwahati: BJP leader L K Advani Thursday said
the domestic and foreign policies of the UPA government were "failures" and it maintained good relations only with Bangladesh.
