Congress leader  Pramod tiwari said,”It is because of such incidents that talks were cancelled last time. Pakistan encouraging the separatists is not in the interest of the nation. The talks should be held, it should held for peace and not to encourage separatism.”

“I just read Sushma’s statement where she is saying that nothing has changed on ground between India and Pakistan and it is true and the example of that happened yesterday. On our soil, in the national capital, under our noses the Pakistan High Commissioner is inviting people who want to wage a war on India and we are simply watching the show,” Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said.

He asserted that if the Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan had done something similar then his office would have been sealed and he would have been sent back to India in cuffs.

“We have been watching this mutiny for 50 years and the way they have been rebelling against India in Delhi. Yes, I approve of talks between the two countries but the nation is pained which an incident as this happens,” Raut added.

“We have been watching this mutiny for 50 years and the way they have been rebelling against India in Delhi. Yes, I approve of talks between the two countries but the nation is pained which an incident as this happens,” Raut added.
