PDP-BJP government in Jammu and Kashmir failed to tackle the situation amicably, said the all-party delegation which visited Kashmir last week to find a solution for restoring peace in the Valley.
Earlier on Thursday, all-party meeting, chaired by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, was attended by 26 lawmakers from 20 parties.
During the meeting, the delegates suggested isolating the Kashmiri separatist leaders for their continued anti-India stand.
Meanwhile, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said all actions in Jammu and Kashmir, including steps against separatists, will be taken keeping “national interest” in mind.
“Whatever actions … will be taken in the national interest. All actions will be taken keeping national security and other issues in mind,” Rijiju said.
Asked about the “harsh steps” in the event of non-cooperation from opposition parties, the minister said, “There is no need to make a major issue out of these.”
