Jammu, August 11:

BJP State Chief Spokesperson Sunil Sethi has made it clear that the party stands for talks only within the framework of Indian constitution and any party or organization which honours the constitution is welcomed to share his views and suggestions to bring long lasting peace and normalcy in the state.

Sethi, who is also a senior advocate, said that the present unrest is due to the failure of the past governments of NC and Congress, as similar situations were faced in 2008 and 2010 and no blue print was formulated to deal with such developments. It encouraged Pakistan, separatists, Hurriyat supporters and their over ground workers, who has once again created the turmoil. “Had the past governments not adopted a soft approach towards these elements, the valley would not have suffered losses of lives and property in the ongoing disturbances.

As far talks with neighbour country, Sethi said that the only issue which is unresolved between India and Pakistan is to get vacated PoJK from Pakistan and the party honours the 1994 unanimous resolution of Indian Parliament in this regard. He also announced that the party is very clear on the issue of terrorism and stands for punishment to terrorists under the law of the land without any leniency or mercy.

Charging some leaders of opposition parties to provoke the people by Tweeting and loading messages during  the initial stage of the present outbreak of unrest, Sunil Sethi said that such acts of these leaders added fuel to the fire, which was very unfortunate and are therefore equally responsible for loss of lives and damages in the valley.
