Rajnath not happy with state govt's 'triviality' approach towards woes of border residents
As HM rules out talks with Pak, Mehbooba seeks to end Indo-Pak hostilities

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 19: Two days after Home Minister Rajnath Singh ruled out talks with Pakistan citing continuous shelling and cross border terrorism as impediment for the same, the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today appealed for peace between and sought to end hostilities between the two countries on the borders. Chief Minister said it were the people of the state who are worst victims of this hostility as they get killed, dislocated besides bearing brunt of dislocations and damages to their property.
While Home Minister Rajnath Singh's statement came close on heels of his personal assessment of ground situation on borders of the state, particularly in Jammu region where shelling and firing from across the border is continuing unabatedly, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti's statement today is being seen in the light of this fresh assessment by MHA. The statement assumes significance also for the fact that state government has maintained silence on the issue for some time and not even any minister from BJP has responded to continuous incidents of firing on the border, leave alone having raised it vociferously.
Sources said the Centre particularly Home Minister has taken note of PDP-BJP coalition's cold shoulder response to the issue of residents in many areas getting dislocated frequently and government's priority and pre occupation with other issues. While PDP's indifference and triviality approach this issue is there, the HM is learnt to have taken serious note of BJP's unresponsiveness despite being in power. Centre's concern and worry towards the issue of border skirmishes is believed to have deepened after MHA took stock of things and situation during Home Minister's visit to Nowshera Sector in Rajouri district, sources said adding that even as Rajnath Singh announced some sops besides decision to set up expert study group on border residents, it is not satisfied with the manner state government was taking the matter insignificantly.
Pertinently, the Home Minister Rajnath Singh put his foot down firmly, asserting on Sunday that there can be no talks with Pakistan until it reciprocates with peace maintaining gestures on the ground level. Interestingly, ruling out of talks with Pakistan by the Home Minister has come at a time when many political parties and politicians in Kashmir during their recent meeting with him suggested that we (India) should engage in dialogue with Pakistan, besides Hurriyat leaders for whom HM has set the same condition so far as taking them on board for any meaningful talks is concerned. Sources said not only leaders from opposition parties but also some PDP leaders had sought initiating dialogue process with Pakistan, which has now been shelved completely by the Home Minister for now.
