The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday urged the State Government to dismantle the terrorist network that seems to have taken root in Tamil Nadu.

While lauding the police for apprehending three persons suspected of involvement in the murders of several Hindu leaders, BJP State vice-president H. Raja told a press conference here on Friday that it was disconcerting to note that a hit list of 32 leaders and 100 ‘book bombs’ were recovered.

Further, the investigation into bomb blasts in Bangalore and New Delhi had found that some of the terrorists, suspected of involvement in these incidents, were from Tamil Nadu.

The reported confessions by these three arrested persons also proved wrong the statement by Director-General of Police K. Ramanujam that some of the Hindu leader’s murders were due to personal motives, money transaction or land disputes, he said.


As for the Lok Sabha elections, the BJP State unit was conducting meetings across the State to ascertain the views of various sections of society and include their demands in the manifesto, said Mr. Raja, who is the convener of the manifesto committee in Tamil Nadu.
