In the wake of tensions along LoC, BJP National President Rajnath Singh today alleged that the Congress-led UPA government has "failed completely" on both the internal and external security fronts.
"The Centre has not only failed miserably on the economic front but has also turned out to be a complete failure on internal and external security front as well," Rajnath told reporters here in reply to a question regarding repeated ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops, during a book release programme here.
He said that after the Mumbai terror attack and the recent incident of beheading of Indian soldiers by Pakistani troops, the Centre failed to give a befitting reply which it must have given to the neighbouring country.
"If a tough stand would have been taken at the time of these incidents and the UPA government would have warned to stop any dialogue until and unless all terror camps operating on Pakistani soil were destroyed, then Pakistan may have not dared," Rajnath said.
In a reply to another query, BJP president said that all allies of NDA would jointly contest the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
He said that even if BJP win 272 seats in Lok Sabha, required to form the government on its own, the allies would remain in the government.
On being asked regarding announcement of candidates for the general elections due next year, Rajnath said that it would be done at an appropriate time.
