Doval proposes, Dineshwar disposes
J&K crisis

Early Times Report
jammu, Sept 6: On September 4, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval made a very bold statement in Bombay. He said, "Separate Jammu and Kashmir Constitution was an aberration".
"A separate Constitution for J&K was an aberration and that sovereignty cannot be a diluted and ill-defined," Doval said at a book launch. The book was on Sardar Patel and the platform was Vivekananda International Foundation, seemingly a think-tank.
As was expected, it triggered a fierce debate. The votaries of national integration and "one state, one law" patted and backed Ajit Doval. And the votaries of limited accession of Jammu and Kashmir with India or loose type of relations between Jammu and Kashmir and New Delhi criticized Ajit Doval and his statement.
The PDP, the NC and the Congress almost spoke in one voice. The PDP chief and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti crossed all the lines and said that "internal sovereignty of Jammu and Kashmir" was the people's right.
The NC reacted in a different manner. It sought to blackmail New Delhi by saying that it will boycott the upcoming panchayat and municipal elections if any attempt was made by New Delhi to tinker with the state's special status.
The Congress, like the PDP and the NC, which is the mother of all ills facing the state since 1947 itself, also crossed the line and said that Jammu and Kashmir will not remain a part of India, if "special provisions in the Indian Constitution", which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, were tinkered with.
The PDP, the NC and the Congress sought to convey an impression that Kashmir meant the entire State of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh and the people of Kashmir represented the general will, which was never the case. Jammu and Ladakh have their own aspirations, compulsions and needs and no solution would work in the state that ignores Jammu and Ladakh and imposes the Kashmir's sectarian will on the whole of the state.
As if all this was not enough, interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma also took the plunge. Without naming Ajit Doval, he said that "we" should not raise contentious issues and that instead, we should focus on youth engagement and public sentiment.
"The need of the hour was a break from the 'narrative of violence'. The focus should be on youth engagement and public sentiments. For peace, it is important not to raise contentious issues," said Dineshwar Sharma a day after Ajit Doval made the statement on separate Jammu and Kashmir Constitution. Sharma called for measures that will help "change the public sentiment" at a time when the Valley was tense over apprehensions that Article 35A of the Constitution might be scrapped.
From the statement of Dineshwar Sharma, it was clear that the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) are pulling in different directions and this doesn't augur well for the future of the nation.
