Talks with Pak only if it responds properly: Rajnath

NEW DELHI (TIP): Days after minister for external affairs Sushma Swaraj indicated that doors were not closed for India-Pak talks, home minister Rajnath Singh on September 11 said talks between India and Pakistan could be resumed if the neighbouring country “responds properly”. “If Pakistan responds properly, talks can be held,” he told media on his visit to the India-Pak border in Gujarat. Singh was asked whether there was any possibility of resuming the stalled dialogue between New Delhi and Islamabad. Singh said India wants to improve its relations with Pakistan. “Neighbour is a neighbour.

Friend can be changed but neighbour cannot be changed. We also want that our relations with our neighbour improves,” he said. Meanwhile, Singh inaugurated the integration of Border Security Force (BSF) with Gujarat government’s Bhaskaracharya Institute for Space Applications and Geo informatics (BISAG) project on Saptember 11 at BSF Camp, Bhuj. The home minister was briefed about the details and utility of BISAG and need for dedicated, encrypted channel for Para Military Forces. Singh addressed BSF Jawans live through BISAG and interacted with them. Few of the jawans telephonically made requests regarding increase of Air Courier services in North East region and Jammu and Kashmir and regarding time bound promotions. One of the jawans also asked for giving one-rank-onepension to BSF also. The Union home minister assured them that he would look into the matter.
