Only unsolved issue in J&K is ‘liberation of parts of state, illegally occupied by Pakistan’: BJP


BJP on Thursday said that there will be no change in the GoI’s aggressive policy on Kashmir after Dineshwar Sharma’s appointment as an interlocutor for Jammu and Kashmir.

Union Minister of State in PMO Jitendra Singh and Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh said the NIA would continue its raids on those who were “funding terror” in J&K.

Addressing an “Accession Day” rally, the BJP leaders cautioned party workers that some groups were trying to change the discourse on Kashmir by claiming that the party had taken a U-turn. “There is no U-turn. Our policy is crystal clear on Kashmir. Only unsolved issue in J&K is liberation of the parts of the state, illegally occupied by Pakistan,” Jitendra Singh said according to tribuneindia.

“We will not allow anyone to change our Kashmir policy by launching a malicious campaign,” Singh said.

The Deputy Chief Minister said that the National Investigating Agency would continue its raids on those who are funding terror in J&K. He was referring to the arrest of Salahuddin’s son followed by a raid on his house in the Valley.

Nirmal Singh said during the last one year over 170 militants, including 20 commanders, had been eliminated by forces. “We have made it clear that dialogue will be held with those who believe in peace,” he said, adding that the resistance leaders should shun fear and seize the opportunity to hold dialogue.
