BJP President Shri Rajnath Singh at New Delhi
The BJP expresses its grave concern over the manner in which the UPA
government is operating its Pakistan policy. On the one hand India facing a series of
ceasefire violations from Pakistan and on the other hand the UPA Government’s response
towards such acts of aggression has been submissive.
After making a failed attempt to buy peace with Pakistan at New York, the UPA
government has now allowed Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s advisor Sartaj Aziz
to meet and hold talks with Kashmiri separatist leaders in New Delhi. Why Mr Aziz is given
this opportunity when Pakistan is committing acts of aggression in the state of Jammu
and Kashmir? This is something blatantly against the established international diplomatic
Pakistan has been trying hard to internationalize the Kashmir issue for the past
many years. Kashmir issue was recently raised once again at the UN General Assembly
meeting this year by Pakistan. In the absence of a long term strategic thinking and direction
the UPA government’s Pakistan policy has been driven by adhocism. By allowing Mr Sartaj
Aziz to hold talks with Kashmiri separatists the UPA government has committed another
diplomatic blunder with serious costs to national security and national interest.
The BJP demands that Mr Aziz should be stopped from holding talks with Kashmiri
separatists on Indian soil. Kashmir issue is India’s internal matter and it should be resolved
through a home grown solution.
