Amit talks tough
Union Home Minister Amit Shah has not given any indication that Government of India will talk to separatists in near future. During his first visit to J&K State especially to Kashmir Valley, he has delivered a very tough signal to the separatists. Amit Shah during his meetings in Srinagar has told the security agencies that they should continue their operations against militants and should not give them any concessions. Shah said that J&K Police was doing great service to the nation and also paid a visit to the slain police officers home in Srinagar despite security constraints.
It was reported by some sections of media that Amit Shah after taking the feed-back from the State Governor and other security agencies will provide some hints for the dialogue with separatists and change in the hard policy on Kashmir. The reports appeared in the section of media after the recent statements by the State Governor Satya Pal Malik in which he said that Hurriyat was ready for the talks and the Government of India was ready to address the grievances and aspirations of youth in Kashmir.
The State Governor further said that he was ready to hold talks with any section of the society, giving hints for the talks with separatists and even with gun wielding youth of Kashmir. He even invited the militants of Kashmir to Raj Bhawan for talks.
But in the two visits to Kashmir, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has given no indication that the tough policy to deal with separatists and their sympathizers will continue. He has even asked the investigative agencies to go tough against all the cases relating to terror funding in Kashmir.
