NSA talks will focus on how to tackle terror: BJP

The BJP today said it sticks to its stand that talks and terror cannot co-exist but supported the NSA-level talks, saying that it will be centred around how to tackle terrorism.

The BJP today said it sticks to its stand that talks and terror cannot co-exist but supported the NSA-level talks, saying that it will be centred around how to tackle terrorism.

"Talks and terror cannot co-exist. There are no two opinions on it and party abides by it," BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters here today.

"As far as the talks at the level of NSA are concerned, these are not prime minister-level talks. This is a talk on terror. How to stop terror. The talks are centered on it and how to end terrorism," he said.

On the issue of unfurling of ISIS and Pakistan flags in Kashmir, he said, "BJP always takes these issues very seriously."

"The Union Home Minister has already issued strong directions in this regard that nobody would be allowed to go scot free in these cases," he said.

He said, "Some miscreants and those creating conspiracies are out to destabilise the state government which has formed after 70 per cent of the people of the state voted in its favour".

"The Government is already taking steps to deal with such incidents. We want BJP-PDP government in JK to be successful as it is a big experiment," he said. 

Patra said, "It is an experiment for the democracy of the Jammu and Kashmir and for development and good governance. There should be no politics on it by National Conference and Congress."

Hitting out at parties advocating the abolition of VDCs and revocation of AFSPA, he said that they should take lessons and do not do politics on it. "These are security issues and all should fight unitedly".

Taking a dig at Congress, he said, "When Gurdaspur and Udhampur incidents took place, Congress was engaged in politics in Parliament and seeking reply from the Prime Minister over the terror attack even when the encounter was still on".
