Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that his government was ready to address the “genuine grievances” of all categories of people within the ambit of the Constitution even as he hit out at Pakistan for fomenting terror in India.
In his concluding remarks at an all-party meeting on Kashmir, the Prime Minister applauded security personnel for showing restraint in dealing with the current situation in the Valley.
“Pakistan forgets that it uses fighter aircraft against its own people. The time has come for Pakistan to answer for its atrocities in Balochistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir,” Mr. Modi said.
Listing PoK as one of the four parts of Jammu and Kashmir, he said Pakistan was at the root of the current unrest. Violence, terrorism and anti-Indian activity would be dealt with sternly, Mr. Modi warned.
The meeting was convened on a day when the Lok Sabha unanimously passed a resolution appealing for urgent steps to restore peace in the Valley.
