NEW DELHI: Recent revelations linking the Malegaon and the Samjhauta Express blasts with Hindu extremists have forced the political formations, both the UPA and the NDA, to revisit their strategies on the issue of terror.

Both have decided to go on the offensive with RJD supremo Lalu Prasad taking the lead in calling NDA prime ministerial candidate L K Advani and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi terrorists, alleging that through the Malegaon and Samjhauta blasts, they had conspired to stage communal riots in the country for electoral gains.

"I’ve always been saying it. The BJP and L K Advani are terrorists. All of them should go to jail," Lalu said.

Even Narendra Modi was linked to the blasts, he said.

In fact, Lalu was annoyed with Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil for having failed to nab the terrorists earlier, blaming it on the Intelligence Bureau for not being able to expose the Hindu outfits in the blasts.

Taking on his bete-noire Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Lalu said it was high time that he should free himself of their company.
