Terrorists on the run due to Narendra Modi government's policies, says BJP

Citing examples of Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, Mufti said that wherever America has intervened, it has not helped matters. Pakistan stands isolated in the world today, Prasad said, noting that the USA had called it a safe haven for terrorists.

"Let America and China mind their businesses. Asked if he meant that a "third party" should be involved, Abdullah said, "(US President) Donald Trump has said he wants to settle the Kashmir problem.

While rejecting the U.S. and Chinese intervention to mediate in Kashmir issue, Mehbooba said that those two foreign nations should "mind their own business". "If you want to resolve Kashmir issue there is no other way", Peoples Democratic Party's Sartaj Madni was quoted by a news gathering agency as having said.

Please Wait while comments are loading. I don't agree that Kashmir should be discussed with China or Pakistan.

Yesterday, Abdullah said that India should approach third parties, such as the United States and China, to mediate in the Kashmir issue.

Abdullah said that even after 70 years, the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan had not been resolved. There are many bigger issues across the world, which have worsened. God forbid, does Farooq (Abdullah) want our situation similar to them?

This is not the first time when the Congress vice-president has blamed Prime Minister Modi for creating space for militancy in the state."Modi's policies have created space for terrorists in Kashmir".

"This (Kashmir) is our internal matter and nobody has the right to interfere in it".

Earlier, the U.S. had said that instead of waiting until "something happens", it would try and "find its place in efforts to de-escalate strains between Pakistan and India".

BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said, "In my opinion Farooq Abdullah should go to some third country.He is not talking in favour of India".
