In response to the recent four-day visit of Home Minister Rajnath Singh, the opposition party said that the Modi government is only holding meetings and discussions but no serious actions are being taken.

During his visit, Rajnath Singh in his statement had said that the central government is ready to talk to anyone who is willing to help resolve the issues of Jammu & Kashmir. According to the Congress the BJP alliance in J&K, PDP, might be feeling content with the assurance of Rajnath but the implementation of the talks is another task. The party said that the both the state government as well as the Central government have time and again failed to implement the agenda of the alliance to solve the prevailing problems in Jammu and Kashmir. They are confusing the people and avoiding accountability, accused Congress.

The opposition asked the Modi government to take bold steps to address the J&K issues and start it by filing an affidavit before the Supreme Court defending Section 35-A and clearing its stand on the issue.

State Congress president Ghulam Ahmad Mir in his statement to the ET said that “This government has come up with 30 formulas in the last three years. Time has proved them wrong earlier. Let us see if they will walk the talk this time.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi from the ramparts of the Red Fort on 15 Aug had said that the Kashmir issue will not be solved by violence but by hugs and love. Following on this, Rajnath Singh in J&K had said that five C’s were needed to solve the Kashmir issues, compassion, communication, co-existence, confidence building and consistency. He had also said that the central government is open to talk to anyone wanting to help the problems but it will not hurt the sentiments of the people of the valley.

Responding to this Senior National Conference legislator, Ali Muhammad Sagar in his statement to ET said that the statements made by the Home Minister may be with good intention and in the right direction to help the people in the valley, but just talking would not be enough. He said that the governments even need to implement what it says and it can start by filing an affidavit in the Supreme Court defending the Section 35-A case.

“The PDP-BJP government has faced flak for the continuing volatile situation in the state amplified by the NIA crackdown on Hurriyat leaders, activists and controversial businessmen,” Ali said.

A joint statement issued by senior opposition leaders, MY Tarigami of CPM, Hakeem Muhammad Yasin of PDF and Ghulam Hassan Mir of DP(N) read “New Delhi needs to revisit the whole process and the wrong policies that have shattered the confidence of the people of Kashmir, thereby resulting in massive alienation. The gap between Kashmir and the rest of the country has greatly widened.”

Congress party attacking the ruling BJP demanded the Centre to not just talk but take actions to resolve the issues in Jammu and Kashmir and to make its stand clear on the Section 35-A case.
