New Delhi, Sep 7 (IANS) BJP general secretary Ram Madhav on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government is doing enough to address issues concerning border states.

Addressing a convention on homeland security organised by FICCI, Madhav said the government is taking all necessary steps in states like Jammu and Kashmir and stressed that, “It’s not just security infrastructure, we need a security culture in the country.”

In this context he was critical of political parties and others who have “only tried to draw political mileage” out of slogans like “political solution” and suggested that mere demand for talks without any purpose may not help either.

He maintained that people living in border areas are “big strength” for the border management strategy and said, “We have to find better ways to manage our people living on the borders”.

During the deliberations he agreed to suggestions made by many speakers during the last two days that India needs to develop its own national security doctrine.

The BJP leader, however, was critical of separatist leaders not favouring talks.

“They do not want solution. Solution is possible only if they talk. They are not ready for it.

“They are not ready to open even their doors,” he said referring to a Hurriyat leader’s refusal to meet opposition leaders during their visit to the state on September 4 and 5.
