'Not only Pak, PDP too is responsible for Kashmir turning into hell'

Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 14: Union Transport Minister and senior BJP leader, Nitin Gadkari, has blamed Pakistan for the situation deteriorating in Kashmir during the past five years.
In an interview to a national news channel Gadkari said, "It is not because of the people of Kashmir. It's because of Pakistan. Again, I want to repeat the same thing. After three wars with us, Pakistan has realised that they can't win against India like that. So they have resorted to proxy war, by supporting terrorists and terrorist organisations, and they are creating problems. Some of the incidents in Kashmir are happening because people of Pakistani origin are coming to Kashmir and creating problem. It is a proxy war."
He said there's a section of people supported by the Pakistani government who want to create trouble. "And when we fight them, they take shelter behind the Kashmiri people, making it look like a war between Kashmiri people and Indian forces," he said.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that no one can deny the fact that Pakistan has been instrumental in turning Kashmir into a battlefield but Gadkari has overlooked the fact that Pakistan stooges getting freehand in the Valley too have turned Kashmir into a hell. "After the Pulwama attack, which left 40 CRPF men martyred, the Government of India has hardened its stand vis-a-vis anti-national elements in the Valley. But it took too long for the BJP led NDA government to act. It waited for five years to nail the separatists and the people preaching sedition," the analyst added.
He said that enemies present within Kashmir are more dangerous than the outside state actors. "Had the people propagating sedition been booked soon after the BJP took over the reins of the country today Kashmir would have been a much better place to live," the analyst added.
A Kashmir watcher said the biggest mistake which BJP committed was that it entered into an alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party in Jammu and Kashmir. "The PDP during its rule sidelined the BJP ministers and gave free hand to the separatists and their sympathizers to ruin Kashmir. The GOI agreeing to the PDP's demand to announce unilateral ceasefire during the holy month of Ramadan last year was one of the biggest mistakes which BJP led government committed," he said, adding that "Had BJP not danced to the tunes of PDP situation in Kashmir would not have turned into hell. PDP is equally responsible for miseries of Kashmiris."
