Recently, Mehbooba had said that if the Army Chief can advocate talks with Taliban then why are there ‘different standards when it comes to own (Kashmir) people?
However, Rawat had said that the analogy cannot be applied in Jammu and Kashmir where the government has rejected talks with stakeholders including the Hurriyat and militants.
