Shah said the Modi’s dream is to make India a super power. “That dream will never be achieved till Kashmir dispute is not resolved,” he said, adding: “Mr Modi must strive to address long pending Kashmir dispute in his tenure, his name will be recalled in history forever.”

About the meeting with Pakistan Commissioner Abdul Basit, he claimed, they (Pakistan) have ‘agreed providing its moral, political and diplomatic support till Kashmir’s right to self-determination’. “It’s highly appreciable from Pakistan’s stand at this juncture for their constant support,” he said.

The senior leader said that they are ready to talk. “Our stand is clear we want result oriented tripartite dialogue if India is not comfortable with UN resolutions.” he said.

Shah said: “Those who want to suppress the movement while supporting pro India parties are anti-Kashmiris, people will never forgive those who support communal

Shah lashed out at opposition Congress, which earlier had invited Hurriyat leaders for dialogue during its tenure, and said: “now they, Congress, are questioning the legitimacy of meeting of separatist leaders with the Pakistan High Commissioner. They have no authority and no right to question.”
