Cong supports statehood for J&K, avoids direct reply on restoring Art 370
Bharat Jodo Yatra

Early Times Report

CHADWAL (Kathua), Jan 20: Although Congress supported the demand of restoring statehood to Jammu and Kashmir, the party could not muster the guts to support the demand of bringing back Articles 370 and 35-A.
While addressing media persons in connection with the day one of the Bharat Jodo Yatra in J&K, Jairam Ramesh termed the revocation of Article 370 but avoided supporting the demand of restoring this article in J&K.
“The bill passed on August 5, 2019 in the Parliament was done without discussion, examination, and majority. It was ‘forcefully’ revoked with the brute majority” said Jairam Ramesh and tried to avoid a direct reply to the demand of restoring Article 370.
“We are against UT status to Jammu and Kashmir and statehood status must be restored,” he said adding that many states in India have Article 371 with special provisions.
On Indo-Pak talks, he said, “everybody wants to have a peaceful dialogue with Pakistan but only on a condition that they should stop terrorism. Talks and terrorism cannot go together.”
On participation of a large number of people in the Yatra despite rains, he called it a “healthy sign” in Jammu.
Jairam Ramesh also said the Congress party has invited 23 Heads of national political parties to join Rahul Gandhi at the National Flag hoisting ceremony in Srinagar when the Yatra culminates at Lal Chowk on January 29-30.
He said Bharat Jodo Yatra is launched with a motive to highlight increasing economic inequality, social polarisation, and political dictatorship in India due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies.
On Ghulam Nabi Azad’s Democratic Azad Party, Jairam Ramesh said, ‘Azad is 100 percent B team of BJP. His party is almost finished before taking off. The ‘ranneeti’ of Modi-Shah has failed in Jammu and Kashmir.”
