Kozhikode: BJP on Wednesday alleged that the UPA
government`s "lack of clarity" in dealing with Maoist threats
has resulted in inefficient functioning of police and
"Maoists are spreading networks, taking advantage of lack
of development, lack of clarity, coordination and swift
response from the government, contradictory statements from
responsible persons in power and provision of inadequate
equipment to forces, resulting in affected states being at the
receiving end," BJP national Secretary Muralidhar Rao told
Accusing the UPA government of being soft to threats
posed by terrorism, he charged the UPA with "viewing the
menace through the prism of religion."
"The Congress` keenness to run a coalition government as
part of retaining power at any cost is the hallmark of the
UPA-II government," he alleged.
He claimed lack of clarity within the Manmohan Singh
Ministry had paved the way for lacklustre performance of the
UPA-II government during its one year rule.
"The government has miserably failed to address the
burning price rise issue. No positive signals have come from
the agriculture sector, on which a sizable section of the
population depends," he said.

eroded faith of the poor, Rao, who was here to attend a party
