We will review it. Any decision will be taken after having all opinions are on board. Don’t rule out any possibility,” said Mr. Singh in a press conference in Srinagar.Reiterating the Centre’s readiness to talk to all stakeholder, Mr. Singh said, “For talks, it requires right minded not like minded.” “It will not take time to address the Kashmir problem. This government is firm to resolve it,” he said.He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Home Minister’s statements on Kashmir should be taken “as a final word”, while responding to a question on many BJP leaders speaking in different language on J&K.Describing stone-throwers as “own children”, he said it’s criminal to lead them astray. “If our neighbour is failing to deal with terrorism or stop terrorism from its soil, it should seek help of its neighbouring countries,” he said.“There are forces directly or indirectly supporting terrorism. Terrorism has no religion. It can engulf anyone. What is wrong with our neighbour country?” he said.Referring to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s ‘Jamooriyat, Insaniyat and Kashmiriyat (Democracy, Humanity and Kashmiriyat) slogan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s slogan “Gali say nahi, galay laganay saay (Embrace not abuses), he asked militants “if they believe in democracy or not”.“Kashmiriyat has Hazratbal shrine as well as Amarnath shrine in it. India is a unique country and is home to all 72 sects of Islam,” he added.last_img
