K.N. Pandita, 7 Jan 2006 – Ever since Indo-Pak dialogue began a year or more ago, there have been contradictory and even confusing statements from various official quarters about the rise or fall in militancy related incidents in the J&K State. . Ministers and their top bureaucrats apart, even army generals also are willy-nilly dragged into this controversy.
It shows that pressures from some unknown quarters are exerted to force retracting of statements or re-interpretation of policy parameters. Pakistani media loses no opportunity of drawing another mile from New Delhi’s vacillation.
