BJP opposes unilateral truce in Jammu and Kashmir

BJP opposes unilateral truce in Jammu and Kashmir

"This can't be Kashmiriyat" Said Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Mejhbooba Mufti. "I believe it can not be accepted that the government will announce a ceasefire and militants continue attacks on our security forces", the former RAW chief said.

Opposition NC Working President Omar Abdullah had said yesterday, "We've killed a tourist by throwing stones at the vehicle he was travelling in".

Talking about the statement made by Bipin Rawat, Mir said, "Bipin Rawat is a fighting force". They said the party has no problem in the suggestion to meet the Prime Minister on his visit to the State but it is not for the unilateral ceasefire.

"We don't want any unilateral ceasefire at this juncture", party spokesman Arun Gupta said in press conference in Jammu, "It is not going to happen. The parties suggested that the Centre offer the ceasefire like former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee did in [November] 2000", said Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti after the marathon meeting of all regional parties in Srinagar's Sher-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre.

"We would raise important issues and the need for a dialogue", he added.


"The security situations is very serious". Two militants die and a few days later, new ones join the ranks.

After opening of the Civil Secretariat in state's summer capital Srinagar on Monday, the Cabinet is all set to meet on May 11.

Sources said that other parties including Congress, BJP, CPI (M), Peoples Conference, PDF and others attended the five-hour long meeting. Mufti had called the incident- "murder of humanity". He also emphasised that a call for a unilateral ceasefire was not a unanimous decision at the meeting.

There was no debate on it and BJP did not agree to it, he told reporters. "The Army's operations to neutralise militants have been successful". Palaniswami also spoke to Mehbooba over phone and sought her help for the safe return of 130 tourists from Tamilnadu who had gone to Jammu and Kashmir.

BJP general secretary Ram Madhav on Friday backed Army Chief General Bipin Rawat over his Kashmir remark in which he had warned stone-pelters of the Kashmir valley.
