'You need to be right minded not like minded for talks': Rajnath Singh tells Kashmir separatists
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said that the government will do everything to bring peace to Kashmir.
"I would like to repeat, that no matter how many obstacles come in our way, we will not be deterred in our aim to bring lasting peace to Kashmir," said Rajnath Singh.
"They(Separatists) can play any kind of politics, but they should not play with future of children, these children not only children of Kashmir but also of India, they are an asset.Keeping this in mind we took back cases of first time stone pelters:, he said.
"Giving your children the best of education, and handing out stones to children of others? What is this? I always felt there is a lot of talent in youth here, IAS,IIM etc results are a proof. Youth being misguided by certain forces," he added.
"We are open to talks with all, you don't need to be like minded to talk but you do need to be right minded," Rajnath further added.
Singh also reminded that how security forces have worked with utmost restraint ever sinch unilateral ceasefire was announced by the Center on May 16.
The Hurriyat Conference has offered to hold talks with the Union government but has also put some conditions.
Earlier in the day, Rajnath said that the Centre had decided to withdraw cases against those "misled into stone pelting" as it was concerned about the future of Jammu and Kashmir's youth.
Singh, who arrived at the state's summer capital today, is on a two-day visit to review the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
