‘We are not Pakistanis’, says Farooq; Jitendra Singh blasts Cong for J&K impasse

(UNI) Blaming the ”Nehruvian blunder” for the present impasse in the militancy-hit state, Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Friday said ,” Kashmir today, is a result of successive Congress governments’ mistakes in the state.”
The Minister said if then Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru) has had not intruded into then Home Minister’s domain, situation would have been different today, said Dr Singh.
He was intervening in the debate on statutory resolution, approving the proclamation issued on December 19 imposing President’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir, which was adopted earlier.
”We never said we will not hold elections in Kashmir – we follow a procedure, we are not like certain parties where decisions are taken in the kitchen when the mother and son have their food,” the Udhampur member said.
There was protracted nightmare of restlessness and militancy in Jammu and Kashmir but government’s intentions cannot be doubted, said Dr Singh in the Lok Sabha.
