Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 23: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi touched on various issues during a rally at the Ashok Nagar area of Jammu but he avoided speaking on the restoration of Article 370.
Shockingly, Rahul Gandhi not spoke even a single word about the gruesome terror attacks in the Dhangri village of Rajouri in which seven members of the minority community were killed by terrorists.
In his 21 minutes speech, Rahul Gandhi spoke about different issues to attack BJP.
Rahul Gandhi supported the demand for statehood to Jammu and Kashmir but he avoided touching the issue of the highly controversial issue of restoration of Article 370.
“There is no bigger issue than statehood of Jammu and Kashmir, Rahul Gandhi said The opposition parties have been repeatedly targeting the BJP over the issue of statehood of J&K. Leaders of the ruling party have said that the issue will be considered.
He said that the Congress party will fully support statehood demand. “To reinstate statehood, the Congress will use our full power,” Gandhi said, adding, “Statehood is your biggest issue. There is no big issue as big as statehood. Your right has been snatched”.
Gandhi said Jammu and Kashmir has the highest level of unemployment in the country. Youngsters aspire to become engineers, doctors and lawyers but they find they cannot, he said.
“Recruitment in the Army was another way to get employment earlier. It has also been closed now by a new scheme, called Agniveer, introduced by BJP. That path is also now closed,” he said.
Communication in-charge Jairam Ramesh tweeted: “Today, Rahul Gandhi met a delegation of Kashmiri Pandits; the following was discussed -They haven’t received any salary from the state government for almost 6 months because they have been protesting the targeted killings of Kashmiri Pandits”
“Rahul Gandhi asked them to prepare a three-point memorandum. He will be writing a letter to PM Modi today and will also raise the issue in Parliament. He has promised to send a high-powered delegation from the Congress party to the Valley on the matter of Kashmiri Pandits,” another tweet read.
