New Delhi: The Congress on Friday said the India-Pakistan joint statement in the Russian city of Ufa was not a “breakthrough” between India and Pakistan.

“So-called joint statement with Pakistan is not ‘breakthrough’ but ‘break our bones’,” said senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid here at a press conference here.

Khurshid also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he has failed the country with respect to Jammu and Kashmir and foreign policy.

“The BJP does not have any policy vis-a-vis Jammu and Kashmir. It is highly unfortunate that prime minister is in Jammu and Pakistan and ISIS flags are raised in Srinagar,” Khurshid said.

“We also tried peace initiatives with Pakistan, but our experience tells us not to trust Pakistan,” he added.

More than 80 per cent Indians said that they do support live-ins as a way of life. Out of these, 26 per cent millennials went a step ahead and said that they would choose lifelong live-ins as an option over marriages.

On the other hand, 86 per cent Indians are of the opinion that lust is not the sole reason behind live-ins and more than 45 per cent say that it is more of compatibility testing before marriage.

In the report, 45 per cent respondents have also said that since Indian society constantly judges unmarried couples staying together, any move by the judiciary to support this will not have any effect on their mindset.
