The government on Monday said it is willing to have any dialogue under the ambit of ‘insaniyat’ (humanity) to address the Kashmir issue in order to find a permanent solution. 

“We want to find a permanent solution to Kashmir issue. We are ready for any kind of dialogue within the constitutional framework...if necessary, we are even willing to hold dialogue within the framework of ‘insaniyat’,” Union home minister Rajnath Singh informed Rajya Sabha while replying to a debate on the functioning of the home ministry.

In this context, he sought the cooperation of the Congress.

The minister added that India also wants good relations with Pakistan and is ready to hold talks with that country to end the problem of infiltration.

Singh also said the government is willing to hold talks with North-East insurgents as well as Maoists if they shun arms while promising to step up measures to deal with violence with a tough hand.
