NEW DELHI: A top BJP leader on Sunday said those who take up arms against the State will be killed by the security agencies, while firmly stating there would be no talks with stone-pelters in the Kashmir valley. The BJP appears to have drawn the line that the government would firmly deal with separatists in the Kashmir valley.

“Jo banduk uthayega, usko hum maarenge (those who take up arms against the State will be killed by the security agencies). There is no doubt on the issue. The government is not worried about the situations in the Kashmir valley. We are very confident that the situations there will soon come under the control,” said the senior BJP leader.

The BJP leader stated talks could be held only when stone-pelting ceases completely in the valley.

“This phase will end soon. The secessionist forces will be defeated. The security forces are taking actions on the ground against terrorists. Once the peace is restored, we will initiate all exercises, including the talks,” said the leader.

But the BJP believes, according to sources, that the agitation in the Kashmir valley is directly sponsored by Pakistan, and, hence, there could not be any leniency in dealing with the situations.
“The security forces know how to deal with the situations there. They will continue to have a free hand to tackle insurgency in the valley. It’s evident that Pakistan is attempting to push terrorists into the valley by taking advantage of the melting of the snow. The iron-fisted approach will continue in the State,” stated the BJP leader.
