BJP youth wing activists burnt the Pakistan flag here on Thursday protesting the killing of five Indian army jawans in an ambush along the LoC two days ago.

The activists led by BJP state unit general secretary R V Saminathan gathered near Raja Theatre junction and burnt the Pakistan flag and condemned the Central government for not taking effective steps to counter the threat posed by Pakistan on the border. Protesters raised slogans against the UPA government.  The police intervened and doused the fire.

Talking to reporters, Saminathan said the incidents of border intrusions by China were on the rise and the Congress-led UPA government did not have long plans to deal with it effectively.

The BJP leader said the recent attack on the Indian convoy by the Pakistan army proves the gaps in Congress government policies to effectively engage Pakistan.

Saminathan said the statement by the Union Defence Minister A K Antony in Parliament was demoralising for the armed forces.

The BJP leader said Vajpayee government had taken stern steps to deal with border incursions and attacks on the Indian posts on the LoC.  He charged that terrorist infiltrations were on the rise, owing to the inaction of Congress-led UPA government.
