NEW DELHI -- The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday said the "resumed dialogue with Pakistan could not be revoked due to one attack" and accused the Congress Party of politicising the Pathankot terror attack.

Talking to reporters here, BJP leader and Union Minister Prakash Javadekar batted for the continuation of talks with the neighbouring country, saying if there will be no talks on terror then it would not come down.

After Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Lahore initiative, Javadekar also said the onus is on Pakistan to follow the solemn promise given to India in 2004 that it would not allow its land to be used for terrorism.

He said Pakistan would have to walk the talk on the issue of terrorism.

He supported Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh's assertion that India wanted friendship with Pakistan, but would forcefully respond to any act of terrorism.
