Ahmedabad: India cannot tackle terrorism through mere talks with Pakistan, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international President Pravin Togadia said. He was addressing a meeting of VHP state workers in Gandhinagar on Monday. He asserted that if extremists managed to enter the highly fortified air base in Pathankot, creating havoc among common people was like a walk in the park for them.

“It is a well-known fact that terrorists come from Pakistan and we must find an appropriate solution to this problem. We can achieve nothing by holding talks. If we want to stop terrorism in the country, we must address the root cause of the problem”, he said.

Togadia’s statement comes after a section in the Narendra Modi government favoured the continuation of talks with Pakistan despite the Pathankot attack.

“The lords of terrorists like Dawood (Ibrahim), (Zakiur Rehman) Lakhvi and Hafiz Saeed keep sending hordes of terrorists to India. If the government is serious about curbing terror, all these men must be brought to Delhi and hanged in public.”

Togadia said he had full faith that the Modi government was capable of achieving the objective.

“We trust Narendra bhai. Whether he drinks tea with Sharif or presents sari is not our concern. First, we must make our point clear then he can do whatever he wants,” Togadia said in a reference to Modi’s personal rapport with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif.

Togadia also referred to the ongoing Patel reservation agitation in Gujarat, saying that if a solution was not found, it could herald a “caste revolution” in the state.

Modi government betrayed farmers: Kejriwal.

The Modi government has stabbed farmers in the back by telling the Supreme Court that it cannot implement recommendations of the M.S. Swaminathan Commission which the BJP promised to do so in 2014, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Addressing a farmers rally here at Jantar Mantar, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also slammed the Centre’s crop insurance scheme as a “fraud” and demanded that it be scrapped.

“Soldiers at the borders and farmers at thier farms are in distress. It’s a sad state of affairs. The BJP has dishonoured the promises it made in 2014,” Arvind Kejriwal said.

Thousands of farmers from across the country marched from Ramlila Maidan to Jantar Mantar in the heart of the capital seeking loan waiver and higher crop prices and warning political parties not to ignore their plight.

Reminding the BJP’s promise vis-a-vis the Swaminathan Commission, Kejriwal accused the ruling party of going back on its election promise.

“They have filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court and said they can’t implement it. There can’t be a greater betrayal than this. This government has stabbed farmers in the back,” he said, asking the government to take back the affidavit.

He warned that if it failed to do so, farmers would teach the saffron party a lesson in the 2019 elections.

Demanding loan waiver for farmers, he also said that they must get fair price for their produce.

“They are not begging but fighting for their rights. Once their loans are waived, they won’t demand it again. The government should also buy the farmers’ produce at appropriate price.”

He blasted the government’s crop insurance scheme.

“This is not an insurance scheme but it is BJP’s ‘kisan daka yojna’ (plunder farmers scheme). This must go and the money paid by farmers be returned. Instead, the government should start a compensation scheme for farmers.”
