Guwahati: A resolution aiming at solving
the vexed insurgency problem of the North-East will be passed
at the ongoing BJP national executive committee meeting here,
party president Nitin Gadkari on Saturday said.

"BJP is with the people of North-East and Assam and
we will definitely come up with ways to solve their problems,"
Gadkari said, adding that a resolution will be passed in this
regard.

In his inaugural speech, he attacked the UPA
government for pursuing vote bank politics and "inviting"
infiltrators from Bangladesh with a red carpet.

On the insurgency front, the BJP president alleged
that the UPA government had failed to punish Parliament attack
convict Afzal Guru and tried to give the issue a religious
twist.

"Insurgency has no religion and when the Centre is on
the backfoot they talk about the advent of Hindu terrorism,"
he said.

On the growing Naxal problem, he said the `red
corridor` from Nepal to Andhra Pradesh is a cause for concern.

"This (Naxalism) is not merely a socio-economic
problem. They want to capture India through the barrel of gun
and members in the National Advisory Council are supporting
them," he said.

The BJP president also appealed to the people to help
in the construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya and asserted that
it should not be made an election issue.
