‘Centre won’t talk to separatists who use Kashmiris’
BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday said the Centre won’t budge from its position of not talking to Kashmir secessionists who use “people of the Valley as guinea pigs in their reprehensible politics of violence and separatism”.
“The separatists have only one motto: One dead body a day, so they can play sentimental politics over the dead bodies… The security forces and the government, on the other hand, try their best to ensure that the ill-intentions of the separatists don’t succeed. It is a difficult job being executed with commendable sincerity by the government and security forces,” he posted on a social networking site.
The statement comes a day after the Centre submitted in the Supreme Court that it does not plan to hold talks with separatists, and that dialogue to restore normalcy was possible only with the legally recognised stakeholders. The SC was hearing an appeal filed by the Jammu and Kashmir high court bar association against an HC order, seeking a stay on the use of pellet guns.
