Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took potshots at differences between the BJP and the PDP on talks with Pakistan and charged the Centre for not having a policy on Kashmir .
In a post on twitter, Mr Gandhi said that while the PDP says that Pakistan should be involved while conducting dialogue on the Kashmir issue, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said the neighbouring country will have to pay for its adventurism on. He alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was dithering from taking any decision on the matter. Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Mr Gandhi said,'' PDP says "talks" with Pakistan.
BJP Defence Minister says Pakistan 'will pay the price'. While our soldiers pay with their blood for BJP/ PDP's opportunistic alliance and non-existent Kashmir policy; Modi Ji dithers.'' Ms Sitharaman, after meeting senior Army officials and enquiring about the injured in Jammu, has said,''Pakistan will pay for this adventure. It will pay for its adventurism ... I assure the nation that the sacrifices [of those killed in the attack] will not go in vain. We will continue to thwart any attempt by Pakistan-sponsored terrorists to spread violence and take necessary action through a counter-terrorism strategy.''Earlier, Jammu and kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti went public with her desire for tripartite talks between Jammu and Kashmir government, the Centre and Pakistan. The PDP co-founder and former deputy CM Muzaffar Baig also said both the Centre and state do not know where the problem lies. Ms Mufti had said talks were necessary "to end the bloodshed".
