Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Sept. 9 (ANI): Reacting to Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency's (FIA) dropping charges against an accused in the 26/11 Mumbai attack case "for want of evidence", Minister of State in Prime Minister's Office (MoS-PMO) Jitendra Singh on Friday said the Government of India, Ministry of External Affairs and the Home Ministry "would take a call appropriately depending upon the inputs" available to them. "But as far as India is concerned, India is capable of meeting any eventuality," he added. Talking about Kashmir unrest, Singh said there is a need to educate the Valley youth against those working with vested interests to harm the country's integrity. "Firstly, there is no compromise on violence. In a civilised society, it has no space. Secondly, as the situation will normalise, the youth should be involved in the path to development. We have to encourage the youth that under Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi's leadership, they should not be kept away from this growth so that the Kashmiri youth are also give their contribution in development. Third is anti-India activism, and there should not be any premium on that," he added. When asked about Balochistan, Singh said it is also a "very important security concern for India". "Because you cannot allow your neighbourhood to be on fire, as sooner or later it is going to impact you. We cannot build a heaven inside and leave a hell outside," he added. (ANI)
