Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Thursday said that no talks would be held with Hurriyat until they separate themselves from Pakistan.
Malik also asserted that the members of the Hurriyat “don’t even go to the toilet without asking Pakistan.”
“I haven’t held talks with any stakeholders. I recently met representatives from various parties. As far as Hurriyat is concerned, they don’t even go to the toilet without asking Pakistan. So till the time they don’t keep Pakistan separate, no talks will be held with them,” Malik told reporters here.
Earlier today, Malik had met Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national general secretary Ram Madhav at the Raj Bhavan here and discussed issues relating to the challenges on varied fronts including equitable development and bringing peace and normalcy in the state.
