"I am all praise for Modi that he at least expressed determination unlike his predecessor to address the issue of terrorism instead of politicizing it," he said.

The former chief of Indian Youth Congress also termed Modi's invitation to Sharif as a positive message.

Referring to Jodhpur as a sensitive town and breeding ground for terror modules being near to the Indo-Pak border, Bitta alleged that neither former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot nor the security agencies ever took up the issue seriously.

Bitta was here to promote upcoming Bollywood action film 'Holiday' along with actor Akshay Kumar.
