SRINAGAR: Urging New Delhi to start talks with the Taliban, National Conference President Farooq Abdullah on Saturday said India has invested billions in Afghanistan and has no way of engaging with the new regime in the war-torn country.“The Taliban is now in power in Afghanistan. India spent billions on various projects during the previous regime in Afghanistan. We should talk to the current Afghan regime. When we have invested so much in the country, what is the harm in having a relationship with them?’ Abdullah asked, as reported by a Srinagar based news agency.
On Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s US visit, the National Conference leader said, “I am sure PM Modi will be taking all the leaders including US President Joe Biden. There is no doubt that terrorism is eating the whole world. But who started terrorism? Who annexed Iraq? Who bombed Libya despite UN warnings? Which terrorist nation has destabilized other countries?Acknowledging that terrorism is a global threat, Abdullah said that to ensure that all countries are safe, “all powerful countries must collectively ensure that no nation is vulnerable.”The National Conference leader also urged the Center to initiate dialogue with farmers and enact new laws for the agriculture sector with farmers’ inputs.Reacting to the statement of the former Chief Minister, senior BJP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister, Kavinder Gupta has flayed NC President Dr Farooq Abdullah for advising the government to start dialogue with Taliban.In a statement issued here, the BJP leader said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is known for his dexterity in having good relations with the countries and Dr Farooq Abdullah need not advise him on tackling the regime controlling Afghanistan at the moment. He said that Farooq should first set his own house in order before giving sermons to others.
