Endorsing the stand taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on cancellation of foreign secretary-level talks with Pakistan, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) election campaign committee chairman and national executive member Nirmal Singh on Saturday said that continuing talks amid intrusions, ceasefire violations and firing on civilians in the border areas render the entire exercise non-serious and cannot yield any fruits or lead to peace.

Singh while addressing the media persons along with state general secretaries Bali Bhagat and Kavinder Gupta said that Pakistan has violated the Shimla Agreement and Lahore Declaration as its soil is still being used as training and launching pads for terror activities against India and it is also indulging in unprovoked firing on the border.

Singh also took the state chief minister and the leaders of the National Conference, Congress and People’s Democratic Party to task for trying to dilute India’s sovereignty over Jammu and Kashmir and putting a question mark over J&K being a part of India by taking the line of Pakistan, Hurriyat Conference and other separatist organisations.

He added these parties have used the constitutional forum of J&K and the state legislative council against the sovereignty of India. Their mindset also indicates that they are working on the hidden agenda of Pakistan and want to create state within state.

All such people who are involved in this treasonous crime against the nation should be booked under seditious charges and put behind the bars, he maintained.
