The Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday said the latest set of proposals offered by India to push forward peace initiative with Pakistan was a 'final effort' for long lasting Indo-Pak peace.
"The Pakistani rulers should understand the ground realities and respond to the proposals positively, party president M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters at Chennai airport.
"Pakistan should realise that Jammu and Kashmir was part and parcel of India and there was no question of giving even an inch of land in Jammu and Kashmir," he said.
He said Pakistan should stop helping and abetting cross-border terrorism as there was no place for terrorism in peaceful co-existence. "Pakistan should correct the ground situation and take necessary steps for ensuring peace," he said.
Naidu said the rulers of Pakistan, 'who are not elected and not accountable to the people', are not cooperating for ensuring peace even as people of both the countries wanted peace, he said.
On POTA, he said the Tamil Nadu government should maintain the sanctity of the act and use it only against terrorist organisations and not against politicians.
