New Delhi, Jan 17 (IANS) The BJP Thursday said that there is a total disconnect in what Pakistan preaches and practices and India should go by its actions on the borders.

"Pakistan is a multi-headed hydra and talks in different languages. There is a total disconnect in what it preaches and practices," Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Balbir Punj told reporters here.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar called for talks with her Indian counterpart Salman Khurshid amid growing tension along the Line of Control (LoC). In an interview in New York Wednesday night, she said Pakistan had gone out of the way to build constructive relationship with India.

She said it is advisable for the two countries to discuss all concerns related to Line of Control (LoC) with a view to reinforcing respect for the ceasefire, may be at the level of the foreign ministers to sort out things.

Punj dismissed her statement.

"We don't have to go by what Hina Rabbani says but the record of Pakistan so far and what it actually does on the border and on the issue of training terrorists," he said.

Ties between the two neighbours have been strained ever since the Jan 6 killing of a Pakistani soldier allegedly in firing by Indian troops. Two days later, Pakistani soldiers brutally killed two Indian soldiers, including beheading one of them, on the LoC.
