Union Minister Jitendra Singh today hoped that the situation in the troubled Kashmir Valley will soon return to normal as the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir government are moving forward in the right direction with "absolute" coordination.
"There is absolute coordination between the Centre and the state and therefore, we are moving in the right direction. I am sure very soon things will return to normal in the Valley," he told reporters here.
Singh, Minister of State in Prime Minister's Office, had earlier said that common man in the streets of Srinagar does not approve of violence but there are a handful of people sponsored by foreign agencies who are triggering violence in the state.
Ruling out a dialogue with Pakistan, Jitendra Singh said the "government can't talk to perpetrators of terrorism."
"I think we are very clear that it is mischief perpetuated, promoted and sponsored by Pakistan and India is out to defeat this design."
The Minister of State in Prime Minister's Office said: "If Pakistan continues to remain in denial mode, the harm would come to Pakistan itself because the perpetrators of terrorism cannot escape the effects of terrorism for long."
He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said time and again that there can't be any compromise on terrorism but no harm should come to any innocent person, particularly children and youth.
