Well, let us wait and watch

A freeze in relationship with Paki's is a must. What has not worked for 65 years, is not going to work in a year or 2.A freeze, COMPLETE CUT OFF of relationship including recalling our Embassy staff and shutting down and also expelling all Pak's activities in India, a FULL CENSORSHIP in INDIA for reporting/publicizing anything in India about Pak's for at least 1-2 years. It is not about censorship, it is to stop people of India wasting their time thinking/discussing about a USELESS country, which offers nothing other than Chaos and terrorism.Focus on the Border and ensure there is no infiltration and maintain proper vigilance against terrorists entering this country. Do an annual review if it is fit to take up opening the relationship then do it, otherwise postpone it for another year. We don't need Pakistan for anything. The SAARC is a waste of time and it is very wise to wind down that organization too.Focus on nation building and welfare our people, should be the main plank for this Govt. External relationships can wait. We don't need anyone's help, rather home grown talent should be nurtured and developed.Other countries will come to India, for its talented, disciplined hard working productive work force, Stable corruption free Govt and above all for its culture and spiritual values.This generation is for India and we will make it Big! 2nd time in our history, we have a real Hindu Prime Minister after Shri. Lal Bahadur Shastri!Jai Hind!

What dialogue process is he talking about? Pakistan's existence is based on being anti-Indian. We have seen their gun men attacking our cities and massacring people in our trains, and Pakistan has failed to take any action against the perpetrators despite providing proof if their involvement.

AjiK Nair (india)

what is he taking about? We don't need to talk to them.. they need to talk to us.. before that they need to stop cross border attacks.

wallis (London) replies to AjiK Nair

It is this attitude of yours which is taking you bloody indians down the drain.what makes you think that India doesnot need to talk to Pakistan?It is Pakistan which has suffered the most from terrorism? Which terror attacks has India faced after mumbai attack?

jyotsna (india)

let the talks suffer we don't give a dam bloody failed state

fahad (Dubai) replies to jyotsna

Dalley key bachey ,why do you indians keep saying Pakistan a failed state?Bhanchod, Pakistan has done lot of positive work inspite of having so many problems.Go and see the meaning of the word "Failed State" in a dictionary before barking.

wallis (London) replies to jyotsna

May I ask you bloody indians some questions as you seem to be bragging about yourself all the time?If India is such a good and peaceful country then why even Sri Lanka, Nepal and China has problem with India? If Pakistan is what as you said, then why India was importing Onion and Sugar from Pakistan few years back?Why the inhouse production team of bollywood was curious to have the copy right for the cartoon titled "Burka Avenger" which was made by Pakistani singer?Why Indian business community was keen and interested to have Pakistan declare India as the most favorable nation?If India is such a great country, and no doubt India has growing economy and huge democracy, then why inspite of this India has so many problems ?Why is their so much poverty in India?Why are still many Indians living abroad and working as chokidars and taxi drivers?

That is why the CONGI Govt of Sonia Khandi and Rahul Khandi is thrown out. We need a Nationalist and got it.It is the corruption of this Waitress woman which ruined this great nation on earth.Moghuls and Gajini's looted this country, Greeks Looted this country and Britishers looted this country but India still flourished will flourish.What we need, we got it, we will rise like Phoneix in no time.It is the corruption and poor leadership, now everything will toe in line. Just watch, the progress we make in the next 1-2 years.Jai Hind!

Make Mr. Ratan Tata THE ambassador to china and Mr. Mukesh Ambani the ambassador to Pakistan..see how they will turn the hurdles /obstacles into opportunities and harmony with peace and prosperity.They are visionaries ..businessmen..they know the value of time and life...put the past behind us and help each other for progress and peace..rest will be 100% history .Let business build confidence and friendship.build prosperity and no more Trust factor..

Baat to sahi kahi, ap pakistan mai bachi jindagi bitani hai to pakistan ke baare mai hi sochega ye dalaal

Avinash (Chennai)

Mr Abdullah at least Modi will have guts to call Spade a Spade. He will not play games where security of our Country is at stake unlike you and your party who have been playing with the sentiments of the local people and were instrumental in eradicating Hindus from Kashmir.

duart maclean (canada) replies to Avinash

From what I can see, the so-called India-Pakistan dialogue is mostly a joke. Why? Because Pakistan is intensely jealous of India and can't drop it.
