No pact, so Vajpayee failed to solve infiltration issue: Shah
Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee could not resolve the Bangladeshi infiltration issue because of the absence of any agreement with the neighbouring country, BJP president Amit Shah on Saturday said here.
“We did not have an agreement (Land Boundary Agreement) with Bangladesh at that time. So border fencing could not be completed. Now we have the agreement,” Shah said at a press conference when asked why BJP government at the Centre under Vajpayee’s tenure and AGP government, which was in power twice, at the state under Prafulla Kumar Mahanta’s rule together could not resolve the issue.
