Rattled Congress forgets Pak role
1/17/2020 9:39:45 PM

A group of 36 union ministers scheduled to visit Jammu and Kashmir for eight days could have many things up its sleeve vis-a-vis carrying out development in the newly carved out Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. The scheduled visit of the GoM evoked sharp criticism from the senior Congress leader, Ghulam Nabi Azad, who said that the ministers are visiting J&K to “celebrate its destruction” which it witnessed post August 5, 2019, when Centre abrogated J&K’s special status and bifurcated it into two union territories. Azad termed the visit of the GoM as a “third attempt” by the Government of India (GoI) to mislead the nation and the world. “Earlier the GoI made two attempts by sending European Union Parliamentarians and a group of 15 envoys to J&K to project everything is normal in Kashmir. Now this is another damage control exercise,” Azad said. One can understand that as a Congress leader its Azad’s job to point out the flaws with the functioning of the government but the opposition needs to bear one thing in mind that any move which is aimed at putting the J&K on the path of progress and development should not be opposed just for the sake of it. The union ministers, who are going to visit the Union Territory, would definitely announce a slew of measures for J&K’s development. These packages can help in covering up the losses which J&K suffered post August 5. Azad has got the full right to criticize the GoI but he needs to speak about the attempts which were made by Pakistan to foment trouble in J&K, especially Kashmir, after special status of the erstwhile State was abrogated and it was divided into two union territories. The opposition parties have remained silent over the role of Pakistan and the terrorists sponsored by it to keep normal life disrupted in Kashmir. The gun wielding terrorists enforced shutdown in the Valley for nearly four months, hurled grenades and killed innocents to create fear among the people. They burnt shops to ensure that people don’t dare to resume their daily chores. People in J&K have defied the threats and have gone ahead with their lives. It indicates that they are least interested in the propaganda and the politics being played to keep Kashmir burning. The opposition needs to do something constructive for the people rather than playing into the hands of the neighbouring country.
