Latching on to the terrorist attack in Pampore that killed eight CRPF personnel, former External Affairs Minister Yashwant Sinha today lashed out at the Narendra Modi government, saying "nothing" has come out, or will, of the Centre's Pakistan policy.

In an apparent swipe at Modi, the 83-year old Sinha said he comes under the "category of brain dead" but is still giving his advice.

"I come under the category of brain dead. My class is that I do not have the status of giving any suggestion. I am saying this openly that I cannot even give suggestions. But I have publicly opposed the policy of my own government which they are following with Pakistan.

"I have stressed that if I have even some experience of (issues involving) Pakistan and about foreign policy, then nothing will come out of this (present policy). In two years, nothing has come out till now," he said.

In the deadliest attack on security forces in three years, eight Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed and 21 others critically wounded when terrorists rained bullets on a bus carrying them in South Kashmir's Pulwama district yesterday.

The suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists sprayed a bus carrying the personnel of 161 battalion of CRPF with bullets at Frestbal, 14 km from Srinagar, officials said.

CRPF's road opening party engaged the terrorists and killed two of them.

Sinha, who was External Affairs minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, had earlier spoken out against various aspects of the Modi government's foreign policy, especially its handling of Pakistan.
