Congress unhappy over PM Modi's J&K policy
ULB polls unnerve Rahul's party

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 15: The voting pattern in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh has not only rattled separatists and half-separatists in Kashmir, but also unnerved the Congress leadership at the centre. The Congress has said that the ULB polls have polarized Jammu & Kashmir as never before and described it as a dangerous development.
"Jammu & Kashmir is polarized as never before. Jammu is at odds with the Kashmir Valley, Leh leans towards Jammu and Kargil leans towards the Valley, but both Leh and Kargil also assert their identities. The situation was always complex; it has been confounded by the selfish agenda pursued by the BJP. The PDP was a collaborator until the unnatural coalition government collapsed on June 19, 2018," senior Congress leader and former Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said on Sunday.
"Jammu & Kashmir has, for many years, cried out for a political solution. Atal Bihari Vajpayee understood the need for a political solution and how it would necessarily require talking to all stakeholders, including the Hurriyat and Pakistan. He pulled out of his rich vocabulary the word insaaniyat (humanity); he rode a bus to Lahore; he invited President Musharraf to talks at Agra, but ultimately he failed because he could not prevail over the hawks in his party and in the RSS and he could not contain the security forces operating in the state," the Congress leader further said.
The Congress described PM Narendra Modi's Jammu & Kashmir policy inconsistent. "Mr Narendra Modi's tenure has seen such wild swings in approach that one is hard put to determine if there is a policy at all. 'Blow hot, blow cold' would be a charitable description of the numerous flip-flops. The BJP, as a political party, always believed - and more so under Narendra Modi - in a muscular, militaristic and maximalist policy to suppress dissent and enforce law and order. It has stoked hyper-nationalism to consolidate its position in the Jammu region," the Congress leader said, adding that the "BJP also believes it has found another ghost to slay - the 'misguided' youth of Kashmir - and, thereby, rally the hyper-nationalist elements in the rest of the country".
What the Congress on Sunday said was what the Kashmiri leaders, both separatists and so-called mainstream, had been saying since decades. It would now be very difficult to differentiate between the Congress and Kashmiri leaders in Kashmir and it is not good for national health. That the Congress, like the Kashmiri leaders, considers Kashmir the sole factor in the state would only hit it not only in Jammu and Ladakh but also across the nation as the politics of separatism in the Valley has angered the Indian population outside Kashmir.
