New Delhi: A day after eight Army jawans were killed by terrorists in Kashmir, BJP president Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said government's failure to tackle threats to internal security has increased the morale of militants and such activity.

Srinagar: 8 jawans killed in militant attack

"The morale of the terrorists is growing continuously. Government makes the promise time and again that it will take up the fight against terrorism very strongly and wipe it out but- forget wiping it out or terror activities becoming less- the morale of the terrorists is actually going up constantly," Singh said.

He blamed the government's soft handling of terrorist and Maoist activities as the reason behind this and said, “Manmohan Singh's regime should accept this challenge with a ‘firm conviction’ and this should be fought.” He maintained that the BJP is fully with the government in fight against terrorism.

Suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militants had on Monday ambushed an Army convoy killing eight jawans and injuring 19 others on the outskirts of Srinagar city.
