NEW DELHI: Bharatiya Janata Party president Rajnath Singh Wednesday expressed concern over the killing of Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti by the Pakistan army.
It was tragic that the Pakistan Government had killed one of their leaders while providing hideouts to the Al-Qaeda and other terrorist outfits, he said.
In a statement, he said it seemed that Pakistan had not learnt any lesson from its misadventure in 1971 in then East Pakistan and now Bangladesh.
The killing of Bugti exposed the duplicity and double standards of Pakistan's military establishment. Islamabad was taking no effective action against terror groups. Instead, Pakistan had become a safe sanctuary for them, he said.
India should initiate appropriate diplomatic efforts to ensure stability in Balochistan, he added.
