NEW DELHI, July 20: Congress President, Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday called on the Centre to not obliterate the distinction between the civilian population and the terrorists and separatists.
Addressing the cadres in the Congress Parliamentary Party Meet, Gandhi said, "Militants must be dealt with firmly yet we must introspect and ask ourselves what has driven scores of young people to such levels of anger and protest, even violence. Can we say in all honesty that we have responded with sincerity to their pleas. They are our people, we cannot forsake them."
"The government must train itself to the utmost to ensure that the distinction is not obliterated," Singhvi said quoting Gandhi. (Agencies)
