Not a suitable time for talks with Pakistan: BJP

Write a comment

February 13, 2018 18:00


A day after Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti called for dialogue with Pakistan to end the bloodshed in the state, the BJP today said talks were not suitable at a time when the neighbouring country was "supporting" militant attacks.


"Amid the sound of bullets and spilt blood, a certain section is advocating talks between Pakistan and India, which is not at all suitable at a time when Pakistan is openly supporting militant attacks in the state," J&K BJP spokesperson Sunil Sethi said.


He said the Centre takes a call on talks with Pakistan and there was no scope of interference by others. Dialogue can be considered if Pakistan "pulls back" from supporting subversive acts in the region and the environment is conducive, he said. -- PTI
