Union home minister P. Chidambaram in a fresh offer for talks to Northeast insurgents and Maoists Wednesday gave a condition that they should suspend violence.
“After consulting chief ministers of the States concerned, within 72 hours we will get back to them to fix the dates and venue for starting talks. But they must suspend violence,” he said.
Chidambaram who completed three years as the union home minister Wednesday, speaking to media persons said “Violence does not pay and violence will not pay. The State will not bend before anyone who uses violence as an instrument of policy to achieve political demands... That is why we tell them suspend violence and come for talks and when you come for talks, you will be treated with dignity and honour. And we can resolve your political demands through talks”.
