Jammu: Ruling out a dialogue with Pakistan, Union minister Jitendra Singh on Saturday said the "government can't talk to perpetrators of terrorism."
Accusing Pakistan of promoting terrorism in Kashmir, he said: "I think we are very clear that it is mischief perpetuated promoted and sponsored by Pakistan and India is out to defeat this design."
The minister incharge of PMO said: "If Pakistan continues to remain in denial mode, the harm would come to Pakistan itself because the perpetrators of terrorism cannot escape the effects of terrorism for long."
He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said time and again that there can't be any compromise on terrorism but no harm should come to any innocent person, particularly children and youth.
Hoping the unrest in the valley will end soon, he backed the security forces and said the government "has full faith in them and their actions."
