Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj on Sunday said under the UPA government neither the borders of the country nor the women within it have been safe.

Addressing election meetings in Gopalganj and Sheohar constituencies in Bihar, Ms. Swaraj said, “The outgoing government was so busy with corruption and scams that it did not bother to bring the bodies of our soldiers who were beheaded by Pakistani soldiers... it was only after the BJP put pressure that it agreed to ask Islamabad to hand over the bodies of our troops.”

Criticising the UPA for jeopardising internal security , the BJP leader said it was the government’s insipid attitude that bolstered the morale of terrorists and anti-national forces.

“Whether it is the carnage in Assam or blast in a train in Tamil Nadu, terrorists are having a field day with the Centre unwilling to complete probe in an expeditiously.”
