Rajnath asks Naxals to shun violence, join peace talks

BILASPUR (C’GARH): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday appealed to Maoists to shun violence and join peace talks, saying if they give up arms, gov­ernment was ready to discuss all their demands. Addressing a ‘Vi­kash Parv’ rally on the completion of two years of the Modi govern­ment, Singh said there is no place for violence in India as people in the country don’t accept it.

“I want to appeal to Naxals to shun violence as there is no place for violence in India. Let’s come for talks. We are ready for talks and discuss all issues if you give up violence,” he said.
