“But just shaking hands won’t help. The hearts should come together.

“Our prime minister took the initiative to help Pakistan at the time of the floods but Pakistan refused the offer. Instead, they started firing on the border as a result of which five to six of our people lost their lives.”

Rajnath Singh said that: Hundreds of families have been destroyed. I want to assure you that once you elect the BJP government in the state, we will take Jammu and Kashmir out of the shadows of terrorism.

He further said that the whole generation has been the victim of the atmosphere of terrorism existing for long time in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Congress leader’s reaction comes even as the meeting between the farmers and the government is going on to resolve the issue.

Talks between the Centre and over 34 farmer union representatives has started here, even as the farmers protest entered the eighth straight day with thousands sitting on different Delhi borders blocking essential supply chains to the city.

Like the previous round of talks held on December 1, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar and Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister Piyush Goyal are leading the meeting, which is expected to play a major role in farmers’ future course of action on whether they would continue the protest or withdraw it.

The Bharatiya Kisan Union, Bharatiya Kisan Sanyukta Morcha and Krantikari Kisan Union are among over the 34 farm union representatives taking part in the meeting, which started around 12.30 p.m.
