TIRUPATI: BJP leader L.K. Advani has claimed on Sunday that the `Bharat Suraksha Yatra,' which he has now embarked upon, was distinctly different from his two earlier yatras and said that it was aimed at sensitising people to the disastrous situation the country was facing because of the manner in which the UPA Government was pursuing its "vote bank policies merely to garner the Muslim minority votes in utter disregard of the nation's unity, security and integration."

Mr. Advani, who is on the eleventh day of his yatra, entered Chittoor district on the last leg of his two-day road-show in the south Andhra region. En route to Tirupati, where he would stay overnight, he addressed public meetings at places including Molakalachervu, Madanapalle, Vayalpad and Piler. He said while his two earlier yatras were part of the party's agenda Ram Janmabhoomi and Swarnadesh the present yatra was to awaken the Centre from its "deep slumber" ignoring the stalk realities around such as the increasing jehadi and fundamentalist activities, thanks to the repeal of POTA.
