Jammu, November 3
Leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad blamed the Narendra Modi government for the flare up on borders and the deteriorating situation in the Valley , saying the BJP had no policy to bring peace in this sensitive state.
Azad arrived here this morning to enquire about the condition of the injured in the Pakistan firing in border villages was speaking to the media . He was critical of the NDA government but kept silent on the role of Pakistan in promoting terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir or cross border firing .
The leader of the opposition ‘s visit had come in wake of the recent cross-border firing in which eight civilians were killed and 25 others wounded on Tuesday . He felt that the surgical strikes were okay but the NDA has tried to “appropriate its success by politicizing it. This should not have been done . This is not good.”
“The number of ceasefire violations is far higher than these violations during the entire UPA government,” Azad said but did not mention that the ceasefire understanding was executed during the NDA government in November 2003.
According to him the border skirmishes had resulted in the losses on both sides of the border in terms of human lives , cattle and there is a threat of greater economic loss as the paddy fields have not been harvested as yet.
Azad repeated his old theory that the PDP-BJP government was “ unacceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir” and that’s why there was “ whole trouble in Kashmir where more than 90 lives have been lost, thousands injured and several schools burnt.”
“ It is all because of the PDP-BJP government in the state,” but he did not say anything regarding the role of the separatists in igniting and fuelling the agitation in Kashmir.
