Extremists in India, Pakistan think military action is only solution to Indo-Pak conflict: Sudheendra Kulkarni

New Delhi: Observer and Research Foundation (ORF) chairman Sudheendra Kulkarni on Tuesday said there are some extremists in India and Pakistan, who think military action is the only solution to Indo-Pak conflict.

Advocating for Indo-Pak dialogue, the former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ideologue said, there is no single power in Islamabad with who India can talk.

The Kashmir issue has been kept aside, it should be brought to centrestage during the bilateral talks between the two neighbouring countries, he asserted.

Earlier, in a hard-hitting editorial, Sena mouthpiece Saamna had called Kulkarni a Pakistani agent , saying that with people like Kulkarni present in India, Pakistan need not send those like Ajmal Kasab.

Kulkarni, who was a top aide of LK Advani, was also blamed for the former deputy PM's Mohammad Ali Jinnah fiasco.

Kulkarni faced Sena's ire over his support for Pakistan's former foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri​'s book launch in Mumbai.
