Govt silent on communal incidents, says Oppn in RS

Opposition on Monday came down heavily on the government accusing it of remaining silent over cases of communal violence and failing on national security front and stopping transfer of public money to foreign telecom firms.

Main opposition Congress party also charged the BJP-led dispenation with failing to make sufficient provisions for the defence budget at a time when India was prone to cyber attacks and countries like China had thrice its budget allocation for the sector. Participating in a debate on Motion of Thanks to the President's Address in Rajya Sabha, Congress member Ashwani Kumar said, "for the last few months, incidents of communal violence has flared up in several states but nothing has been done...I am happy that the Prime Minister made a statement on it but it took him nine months to do so."
