Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today categorically said there will be no talks with those militant outfits that indulge in violence though doors are open for parleys with others.
"Doors are open for discussions. Talks we will have but under no circumstances we will have talks after the militants indulge in violence. We will not talk with such extremist groups under the Narendra Modi government," asserted the Home Minister addressing the closing ceremony of the 19th National Youth Festival here.
Appealing to the North East region based insurgent outfits to stop their violent activities, the Home Minister said, "They do not understand the poor people's problems. The poor are being massacred and the youth cannot remain silent but have to fight them, however, powerful they are."
