The Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that if Hurriyat leadership is ready to come to the table for talks, the government of India is ready for it.
“If Hurriyat is ready to come to the table for talks, we are ready for it. However, as on date, there is no indication from them to this effect,” Rajnath Singh said.
He also said that New Delhi is ready to hold talks with Pakistan if it comes forward to hold talks. “To not welcome anyone who wants to talk, is not the right thing,” home minister told in an interview with National TV channel.
Union Home Minister Rajnath further said that Pakistan will have to learn a lesson. “If you see, there is a consensus emerging in the international community that Pakistan has become a shelter for terrorists,” he said.
“I believe that Kashmir and Kashmiri are both ours,” he said.
He also said that Border situation is a concern, but the government of India has a comprehensive plan for the welfare of border people. “Border people are special for us. We are doing everything for their safety,” he maintained. (KNS)
