Regarding the issue of talking with Pakistan for a permanent solution in the state due to unremitting episodes of terrorism and other matters and also taking serious note of the anti-national utterance by NC sitting legislature, Akbar Lone former speaker of J&K Legislative Assembly, BJP State Chief Spokesperson, Adv. Sunil Sethi accompanied by State Press Secretary Dr. Pardeep Mahotra held a press conference at the party headquarter, Trikuta Nagar.
Sunil Sethi said that today amidst the sound of bullets and missiles and spilled blood, certain class is advocating for the talks between Pakistan and India and advocating that India must take forward step for talks, which is not at all suitable at the time when Pakistan is openly supporting for conducting militant attacks in the state, keeping fact in mind that the slain militants from Sunjwaan hailed from Pakistan.
He said that the whole Nation stands with the security forces against of Pakistan and its supported activities and the talks at this time with the rogue state will only serve to down the morale of Indian security agencies engaged with the containing the militant activities and keeping the peace.
Sunil Sethi further said that the talks with Pakistan on any matter and at any time is totally the matter of concern for Central Government with no scope of interference by any other. And this can only be considered, if it will be, when Pakistan pulls back its hand from supporting the subversive acts in the region and environment is conducive for the matter on the “Parliamentary Resolution”. He also said that the Parliamentary Resolution clearly stated that there is only single issue which is to be considered and discussed at any forum with Pakistan and that is regarding the taking back “Possession of Pakistan occupied Jammu & Kashmir (PoJK)” from the clutches of Pakistan.
Sunil Sethi also criticized Akbar lone for hailing Pakistan in the temple of democracy, while telling that his (Akbar Lone’s) feeling are hurt by listening to “Pakistan Murdabad” as he is a Muslim. Sunil Sethi said that Lone has put a blot on the image of political class by trying to indulge whole community in his personal political agenda. Sethi said that this is an extremely serious matter, as not only due to his anti-national utterance but due to a bid to divide the population. Sethi said that Lone’s statement particularly aired at the time of militant attack, when or valiant forces were trying to neutralize the threat, so the issue cannot be ignored.
Emphasizing that the Speaker has to take action on the erring member Akbar Lone, Sunil Sethi demanded that the Speaker should refer the matter to privilege committee as this is clearly the matter of breach in privilege of the house. He added that the speaker can also debar the member, till the report of committee is out. He has insulted the whole Muslim community and tried to put question mark on their Nationalism, he added.
