Is Agenda of Alliance a panacea for peace in Kashmir ?
1/10/2017 11:31:59 PM
Is Mehbooba Mufti right when she said that the PDP-BJP coalition's Agenda of Alliance, has solution to all problems?, This agenda of Alliance was decided by former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and was necessary for bringing Kashmir out of difficult situation.She said the Agenda of Alliance covered various issues, like revocation of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, power, talks at different levels and friendly relations with Pakistan. It containted solutions to the various issues confronting the state. The Chief Minister may not be correct to the dot because the security scenario in the state is still in a perilous position which may not allow AFSPA to be revoked.In addition to this the atmosphere is not conducive for holding talks either with the separatists or with Pakistan.Yes,this Agenda of Alliance is a well written document that has, for the first time, bound the BJP and the PDP to share power in Jammu and Kashmir. However,this Agenda of Alliance is not a panacea for all the issues that relate to the internal and external dimensions of the Kashmir problem.
As far as talks with the separatists are concerned the Government of India has reservations in reopening the channels of dialogue with them on the ground that they continue to incite people to violence and continue to receive moral, material and diplomatic support from Pakistan.
In fact the seven-month long turmoil,in which about 100 people were killed and several hundred were injured including those who lost their eyes with pellet guns fire,was triggered by the separatists and was sustained by militants, especially those from Lashkar-i-Toiba. Regarding resumption of talks with Pakistan India has made itself clear on various issues.India wants Pakistan to stop its soil for exporting terror to India,particularly to Jammu and Kashmir.And if the recent turmoil was aimed at awakening the UN and the US to the realities both the separatists and Pakistan succeeded in motivating the UN for intervention.
And one can cite the recent announcement of the new secretary General of the UN who has indicated that he was ready for intervention in order to promote peace between India and Pakistan.Earlier the UN had stated that since it is a bilateral issue India and Pakistan should resolve differences amicably through talks.UN intervention was the aim of Pakistan, militants and separatists and their purpose was to revive the Kashmir issue at the international level.
In this context it is not possible for India to reopen talks with Pakistan. At one stage Mehbooba held separatists responsible for not opening their doors when a delegation of MPs from New Delhi had reached Srinagar with the purpose of exploring the possibility of promoting cordial ties between the centre and the separatists.This way even the separatists are not prepared to hold talks and that too when there is violence in Kashmir. Hence behvaiour of Pakistan and separatists could promote peace and not the Agenda of Alliance.
