May 04, Tiruchy: An Indian opposition leader has charged that Pakistan has chosen Sri Lanka as the base to train extremists to attack targets in India.

Bharatiya Janatha Party (BJP) leader L Ganesan on Saturday charged that Pakistan had chosen Sri Lanka as a base for organizing arms training camps for terror outfits and extremists are currently being trained in Sri Lanka.

He alleged that the militants are then infiltrated into India through coastal routes to carry out terror attacks in India.

He told the Indian media that both Sri Lanka and Pakistan are aware of the illegal activities but had not taken any action against them and criticized the Indian government for being a mere spectator

He said the twin blasts in the Bangalore-Guwahati Express train at Chennai on May 01 were aimed at the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

He said his party (BJP) would never allow extremist activities in any form and a Modi-led BJP government would take tough action against terrorist activities.
