New approach needed to tackle J&K issues

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Aug 23: The approach adopted by successive governments in New Delhi has not produced the desired results. It has failed to establish law and order in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. It has also failed to prevent discrimination between the regions and the communities. The result: The problems compounded over time.
Governments did try to solve the issue through talks, agreements, and peace efforts with Pakistan, but it hasn't yielded any favorable results till date. Instead, the approach has only weakened India's position. Governments assumed that the issue is economic and tried to solve it through infrastructure development, jobs and granting a huge sum of money, but that move also utterly failed. Governments tried talks with separatists and that approach failed as well. The latest attempt of alliance based on CMP too has failed. The PDP-BJP government has collapsed and the state has been under the Governor's Rule since June 20.
It is time for the government to accept that the causes of unrest in Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh are deeper and work out a solution that doesn't impose the will of Kashmir on Jammu and Ladakh or vise-versa and that treats all the three regions equally at all levels. The Government at the Centre has to reorganize the state on a regional, as opposed to religious, basis. SP Mookerjee, Balraj Badhok and former Union President R Venkataraman had all made suggestions to this effect taking into consideration the politics Kashmiri leaders had been indulging in.
The political parties in Kashmir, including NC, PDP, Congress, CPI-M and other smaller groups in the Valley also has this misconception that if the Union Government abrogated Article 35A, then people from outside the regions will settle there and the problem would be solved like in Chinese Xinjiang region. The failure of the government to settle Kashmiri Pandits in the Kashmir division despite that being part of CMP disproves that this article is the sole reason that prevents settlement.
The government also believes that Jammu and Ladakh regions give them leverage in local politics. The blatant discrimination and failure of law and order situation and rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits is the clear proof that government is disillusioned that it controls Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
The root cause of the problem is Pakistan and its agents in the Kashmir Valley, who with the support of Pakistan are misleading the people and creating chaos in the region and the same was referred by former CM Mehbooba Mufti when she said that only 5% people cause the problem. These people are funded by Pakistan to burn the region and create chaos and their links were also exposed in sting operations. They spread propaganda against India and incite people like paying people to throw stones, which was apparent during demonetization when no such incidents were reported.
Now that Jammu & Kashmir has got a new Governor in the person of Satya Pal Malik, it is expected that the approach which the authorities in New Delhi hitherto adopted will be reviewed and a holistic one will be adopted. SP Malik is a political person and he has the necessary experience. Let's all hope for the best.
