Leader of the Opposition and senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Lal Kishenchand Advani has demanded that the central government revive the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

Accusing the Congress-led government of 'communalising the war on terrorism', Advani claimed that many police and intelligence officials had told him that they felt 'handicapped' in the absence of a tough anti-terror law.
