Unity and Love are basic mantras to address Kashmir problem: PM
Modi’s talks of ‘Ekta’ and ‘Mamata’
8/28/2016 11:56:22 PM
New Delhi, Aug 28: In a fresh bid to reach out to people of the valley, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said "Ekta" (unity) and "Mamata" (love) are the basic mantras for addressing Kashmir problem even as he slammed those pushing "innocent" children to violence, saying they will have to answer them some day. Seeking to strike a chord with the people of Kashmir, he said if any life is lost in the valley, whether of any youth or any securityman, "that loss is ours, of our own, of our own country". Speaking on the unrest in the valley in his monthly radio programme 'Mann Ki Baat', Modi said, "From the interactions I had with all parties on Kashmir, one thing emerged from those, which can be put in simple words as 'Ekta' and 'Mamata'. These two things were the basic mantra." He said all the political parties had spoken in one voice on Kashmir, sending out a "message to the world as well as separatist forces" besides conveying "our sentiments to the people of Kashmir". He equated it to the passage of landmark GST Bill by Parliament for which all the parties came together, saying it showed that big tasks can be achieved by walking jointly. "It is the view of all of us, the view of 125 crore people from a pradhan of a village to the Prime Minister, that if any life is lost in Kashmir, whether of any youth or any securityman, that loss is ours, our own country," Modi said.
