Advani to tour North East despite threat mail

September 25, 2008 16:03 IST

The BJP will go ahead with the scheduled visit of L K Advani [Images] to North East despite the e-mail threat given by suspected Indian Mujahideen [Images] terrorists to eliminate him.

"We are going ahead with the programme," BJP president H S Syiemlieh told PTI before going into a huddle with senior state leaders to discuss the matter.

Terming the threat 'nothing unusual', he said the party was in touch with the police.

 "We are not sure about the credential of the threat. The responsibility of his (Advani) security lies on the government," the BJP president said.

Meanwhile, senior BJP leaders Harendra Pratap and V Satish were camping in Guwahati to oversee Advani's North East tour.

Advani is scheduled to arrive in Guwahati on September 28 and then visit Shillong on September 29 as part of his Sankalpa Yatra.
