NEW DELHI: BJP chief Amit Shah met Prime Minister Narendra Modi tonight and both the leaders are believed to have discussed the NSA-level talks between India and Pakistan, whose fate remained uncertain with both the countries trading charges.

Shah called on Modi on a day India made it clear to Pakistan that the talks cannot be held if it insists on talking to Kashmiri separatists and expanding the agenda of talks beyond terror.

BJP has been strident in its opposition to any talks between the Hurrriyat leaders and Pakistan's NSA Sartaj Aziz, ridiculing it as a recreation which can occur after the NSA-level engagement.
