Shinde, however, asserted that both India and Pakistan need to maintain good relationship.
"I think the President is correct," Shinde told media.
Sending out a strong message to Pakistan, Indian President Pranab Mukherjee on Friday said state-sponsored terrorism from across the border could not be accepted.
"And second thing is terrorism. And terrorist activities must be curbed. And state-sponsored terrorism can never be acceptable," Mukherjee told Euronews.
"No it might not be, but non-state actors, that is the phrase they use, then I respond by saying that non-state actors are not coming from heaven. Non-state actors are coming from territory under your control," he said.
Mukherjee said India wants peace with Pakistan.
"In 1971, when Indira Gandhi was prime minister, and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was prime minister of Pakistan, India entered into an agreement known as the Simla agreement, and in that Simla agreement India ceded all the occupied territories by Indian army during the war. In our basic foreign policy we do not have any territorial ambition, we do not have any ambition to export our ideology to any country, or we do not have any commercial interests," Mukhjerjee said.
" I shall have to accept the neighbour for where he is, whether I like or not. Therefore it is for me to decide whether I will live with my neighbour in tension or in peace. We opted for peace. But one point is to be understood: no country can compromise its territorial integrity. That is not possible," he said.
"But as far as possible, we are talking to Pakistan because, they are our neighbours. We have to maintain relations," he said.
Referring the recent meeting between Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, Shinde said: "Prime Minister Dr.Manmohan Singh has also had sideline talks at the United Nations and they held good talks....I haven't seen the President's statement as yet. He has spoken on behalf of the country."
