Pune, January 16:

BJP president Nitin Gadkari today said the UPA government and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should adopt a "ruthless stand" on Pakistan's recent ceasefire violations on the LoC and the killing and decapitation of Indian soldiers.

Stating that Pakistan had violated human rights and international norms, Gadkari said, "People of this country are
angry and the government and Prime Minister should take a ruthless stand in the matter."

Gadkari, who spoke to reporters on the sidelines of a function organised by the Symbiosis Institute at its campus at
Lavale, near here, said that it was expected that Pakistan would regret its action, but it did not happen as it continued to be in the denial mode.

He said the dialogue with Pakistan would be an exercise in futility after the recent episode.

Since Pakistan had violated international norms, the issue was not just confined to the two nations, Gadkari said
adding that the UN should "boycott" Pakistan.

Earlier, addressing the students, the BJP president said if "good" people joined politics, it would enhance the
"credibility" of the political parties and bring about a qualitative change in them.

Participating in the 'Festival of Thinkers' programme, Gadkari said the bureaucratic and rigid mindset of the
government should change to facilitate fast developmental process in the country.
