Taking Kashmir to UN, treating Pak stooges like VIPs big mistakes
Candid Admission

Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 19: Veteran Congress leader and former External Affairs Minister Natwar Singh has admitted that taking Kashmir issue to the United Nations was a mistake.
"The fundamental mistake was to go to the UN on the Kashmir issue. (Prime Minister) Jawaharlal Nehru was pushed into it by (Governor General) Mountbatten. We went to the UN under Chapter 6, which is on disputes. We should have gone under chapter 7 which is on aggression," Natwar Singh said.
The 87-year old Congress leader who worked closely with the top Congress leaders has spilled the beans and has covertly blamed the first Prime Minister of India Jawahar Lal Nehru for messing up the Kashmir. "Usually when such assertions are made by the RSS or the BJP leaders, Congress takes them head on and accuses them of being unaware about the history," said an analyst.
He said that today this assertion has been made by their own leader but they have not reacted. "Congress leaders also know it very well that Nehru committed a blunder by taking Kashmir to the United Nations. Congress leaders should admit it openly and tender an apology on Nehru's behalf," the analyst added.
He said that the blunders committed by the Congress leaders have proved detrimental for the interests of the country. "Today the separatists and the Pakistan stooges active in the Valley just harp about the UN resolutions and leave no opportunity to claim that Kashmir is a dispute which needs to be settled," he added.
A defence analyst said that another blunder which the Congress leaders committed after Nehru was that they allowed separatists to thrive and provided them with the space to carry out anti-national activities. "Everyone is aware about the fact that separatists were treated like VIPS during the Congress rule and they were provided all the privileges and the comfort. They were even provided monetary assistance and the security by the Government of India. Had Congress regimes cut the separatists to their size Kashmir would have been a better place to live," the defence analyst added.
"The fact is there is no solution for Kashmir, everything has been tried. The other fact is that Indo-Pak relations are chronically accident prone. The future of Indo-Pak relations lies in the past. Both countries carry too much baggage… I don't see any change in our relationship. It is cheese and chalk… as simple as that. It's a great pity," Natwar Singh said.
A politician said, "When Congress leaders were in power they just took everything lightly. They just sat over everything and allowed the issues to snowball into major controversies. Today India is suffering due to the follies committed by the leaders in the past."
