Indo-Pak bilateral talks should resume as soon as stability returns in Pakistan: Omar Abdullah

Srinagar: Reacting to reports that Modi government has instructed schools to make it compulsory for students to listen to Prime Minister's speech on Teacher's day, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that the instructions are on the same lines of North Korea's system.

“These instructions are like a North Korean system,” said Omar.

The Centre's move to celebrate Teacher's Day as 'Guru Utsav' and the planned interaction of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi with school children on that day have kicked up a controversy with opposition Congress and others, including BJP allies MDMK and PMK, slamming the government.

Furthermore, the NCP leader while speaking on Indo-Pak dialogue said that as soon as stability returns in Pakistan, India should resume talks with it.

He also slammed Pakistan's infiltration in J&K, saying that had the nation concentrated on its internal situation and would not have made the lives of people in the state miserable then things would have been better.
