New Delhi, Aug 16 (IANS) Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his observations on the Kashmir issue in his Independence Day speech, the Congress on Wednesday said “brickbats and bullets” should stop coming from the government and BJP’s side and they should start the dialogue process.
“He (Modi) embraces people from across the world, but I have never seen him embracing Kashmiris. He should have taken this initiative before.
“He said the Kashmir problem cannot be resolved through bullets and brickbats, instead it will be solved by embracing the Kashmiris. But bullets and brickbats are coming from their (BJP and government) side,” said senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.
“We had earlier suggested that the door for dialogue should be kept open. This is a bilateral matter. It should be resolved bilaterally,” he said, adding that the process of dialogue had been stopped for the past three years.
“The government believes in military action and the supporters of Sangh Parivar keep abusing Kashmiris on selected channels. Both are coming from their side. They should stop bullets and brickbats. Don’t tell others to stop it,” said Azad.
