Congress wants Delhi to appoint interlocutors for J&K
No place for Jammu, Ladakh

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Apr 17: The Congress, which is squarely responsible for all the problems the nation faces in Jammu & Kashmir, will not learn lesson from its past mistakes. It is clear from what the Congress on Sunday said about Jammu & Kashmir State. The Congress made its stand on Jammu & Kashmir public through former Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, who earlier had claimed that Kashmir had almost slipped away from India.
Chidambaram, among other things, said: "The alienation of the people of Kashmir Valley is nearly complete. We are on the brink of losing Kashmir. We cannot retrieve the situation through a 'muscular policy' - tough talk by ministers, dire warnings from the Army chief, deploying more troops or killing more protestors". The Congress also put forth a solution to retrieve the situation in the Valley. Chidambaram asked New Delhi to ask "the PDP-BJP government to resign and promulgate Governor's rule". He also said that NN Vohra had done "a great job as Governor, but it was time for a new Governor". Besides, he asked the Union Government to "begin a dialogue with all the stakeholders". "Talks could begin with civil society groups and student readers. Eventually, talks must be held with the separatists," he said.
The Congress also pitched for the appointment of interlocutors. "Appoint interlocutors to pave way for talks," Chidambaram said.
Not just this, the Congress asked the Government of India to reduce the presence of the Army and paramilitary forces and hand over the responsibility of maintaining law and order in the Kashmir Valley to the Jammu & Kashmir Police and "put on hold 'counter-terrorist operations' in the Valley".
The fundamental refrain of the Congress read like this: "If the current medicine of tough talk and tougher action has not worked in Jammu & Kashmir, why is it not opportune to try an alternative cure?"
There was nothing whatsoever in the Congress scheme of things for the suffering people of Jammu province and Ladakh region. It was all Kashmir, Kashmir and Kashmir and Kashmiri people. Jammu and Ladakh are the state's two major regions and the people there have their own aspirations.
They stand for joining the national mainstream and not for joining the separatist camp. It was this Kashmir-centric policy that destroyed Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh and it is the same policy that the Congress wants New Delhi to follow. Any scheme that doesn't include Jammu and Ladakh are destined to mischievous failure.
