Kashmir is a hard nut to crack, admits Former Defense Minister

Resolving the vexed Kashmir issue may not be as easy as it seems. At leaset the former Union Defense Minister and Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar believes so.

“It is not an easy issue to resolve and only a long term policy can tackle it,” Manohar Parrikar said on Friday.

Parrikar has said that there was a lot of pressure on him when he was serving as the Defence Minister in the national capital. “It is not easy to resolve the Kashmir issue. There is a need for a long-term policy to resolve the Kashmir issue,” Parrikar said at the 126th birth anniversary celebration of Babasaheb Ambedkar.

He has also said that New Delhi wasn’t a place he got habituated to. “Delhi is not my place. It is not the place I am habituated to. There was a lot of pressure on me,” Parrikar said.
