Stating that India won't tolerate pro-Pakistan activities in J&K, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Friday asked people of the state not to fall prey to hollow slogans as their fate is with India only.

"Kashmiri people should not get misguided by pro-Pakistani elements and remember that their future is linked to India," he asserted at a news conference here held for highlighting the achievements of one year of Modi government.

Commenting on the hoisting of Pakistani flag at regular intervals in Kashmir, Singh said "We will not tolerate. No one will be allowed to misuse our soil."

He said the central government has no plans "as of now" to hold talks with separatist groups of Jammu and Kashmir. "There is no proposal to hold talks as of now," was a blunt reply from Singh in response to a question whether the Centre would be holding talks with Kashmiri separatist groups as was done during the tenure of Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The NDA-I had engaged with Hurriyat leaders led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq as well as with Yaseen Malik and Shabir Shah.

The process was carried forward in UPA-I by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh but it got scuttled after the Centre had asked Hurriyat Conference to bring a road-map on paper for finding a solution to Kashmir issue.

The 'Agenda for Alliance', which guides the PDP-BJP government of Jammu and Kashmir, had said that following the principle of earlier NDA government, the coalition government will facilitate and help initiate a sustained and meaningful dialogue with all internal stakeholders, which will include all political groups irrespective of their ideological views and predilections.
