‘Goli and Gali’ won’t solve Kashmir problem: PM Narendra Modi

NEW DELHI: ‘Na goli se na gaali se, Kashmir ki samasya suljhegi gale lagane se.’ (Kashmir’s problems can be solved only with embracing the people of Kashmir, not with bullets or abuses), Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday while addressing the nation on Independence Day.

“We are committed for the development of Jammu and Kashmir and this is also the resolve of every Indian,” the Prime Minister said in his Independence Day speech from the Red Fort .

Modi said the separatist campaign in the state cannot be resolved by “gaali se” (abuse) or “goli se” (bullet) but by embracing every Kashmiri.

But Modi made it clear that there would be no let up while dealing with the separatists.
At the same, he appealed to the terrorists to join the mainstream. “You have every right to make your voices heard in Indian democracy.”


The Prime Minister also said that many countries were helping India in the war against terror.
Addressing the nation here on India’s Independence Day, the Prime Minister thanked these countries but without naming them.
