Commenting on the Pulwama attack in which a number of CRPF personnel were killed, Punjab cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu sounded a discordant note on Friday saying the dialogue with Islamabad should continue.

Sidhu, who takes every opportunity to harp on his friendship with Pakistan Prime Minister and former cricketer Imran Khan, said: "Wherever wars are fought and such things (Pulwama type attack) happen, dialogue also continues simultaneously. There is a need to find a permanent solution to (issues between India and Pakistan).

"Such people have no religion, no country and no caste. When a snake bites, its antidote is also snake poison," Sidhu said, justifying his take on the matter regarding dialogue between the two nuclear neighbours.

Sidhu condemned the Pulwama attack on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy on Thursday but added that “the entire nation (Pakistan) could not be blamed for the actions of a handful people.”

"This (attack) should be condemned by all. For a handful people, you cannot blame an entire nation. Those behind the attack must be punished," Sidhu said. Agencies
