Agartala: BJP president Amit Shah Saturday said the government will wait for talks till violence ends in Kashmir.
“The (Narendra) Modi government has already clarified in the Supreme Court that it would not hold any talks unless the violence stops in Jammu and Kashmir,” BJP president Amit Shah told reporters in Agartala.
“The government and the security agencies are working on a strategy to tackle the situation,” he said.
Shah’s statement came within hours after CM Mehbooba Mufti said that PM Modi is the only person who can settle Kashmir issue.
Taking on triple talaq, Shah said, that In India, every woman, irrespective of caste, creed and religion should enjoy constitutional rights, but triple talaq often takes away the right of Muslim women.
“We are against talaq and the party’s stand on the issue has already been conveyed to the Supreme Court,” he said at a press conference.
Shah is on a two-day visit to Marxist-ruled Tripura to strengthen the party base in the state.
Claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has emerged as one of the most popular leaders in the country after India’s Independence, the BJP chief said the party has been “registering emphatic poll victories in many states namely Maharashtra, Haryana, Uttarkhand, Jammu and Kashmir, Assam, Goa and Manipur.”
“The poll success of BJP indicates Modi’s rising popularity and it will continue in the years to come,” he said, adding there was no single allegation of corruption against the BJP-led NDA government during the past three years “while Congress-led UPA regime had witnessed corruption amounting to Rs 12 lakh crore.”
