Home minister Rajnath Singh has categorically said that terrorism will be the core issue of discussion during the National Security Advisor (NSA)-level talks scheduled to take place between India and Pakistan.
“We continue to stick to the same stand that dialogue and terrorism cannot go together,” he said while addressing party workers at a function in his constituency Lucknow on Friday evening.
He said the issues that were discussed at a meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistan counterpart Nawaj Sharif in Ufa last month would be the basis for the talks between the security advisors of the two countries.
The home minister claimed that internationally India’s image had got a big boost since the NDA government came to power at the Centre a year ago.
Talking about the development project in his constituency, Rajnath Singh said that the obstacles coming in the way of linking the Kukrail bridge to the ring road had been removed with the defence ministry giving a go ahead to the project. He said he would ensure free treatment of the poor in the KGMC and the SGPGI through a charitable institute.
