New Delhi, Jul 30: The Indo-Pak Joint statement debate continues to rock the parliament. Backing the Prime Minister, Pranab Mukherjee clarified that talking to Pakistan doesn't mean that the country is surrendering to the neighbour.
Speaking passionately and demanding to be heard without interruption, Pranab Mukherjee said that composite dialogue between the two countries must be seen separate from action against terrorism. He pointed out the the country's foreign policy is based on National policy and not on the fancy of a single party.
The opposition who continue to bombard questions on why Balochistan was involved in the joint statement was met with a firm reply from Pranab Mukherjee. Mukherjee said that when India doesn't have anything to hide in relation to the Baloch insurgency then why worry over it.
