Rajya Sabha to take up kashmir unrest today congress will initiate debate

New Delhi: On Wednesday in Parliament, the Opposition leader Ghulam Nabi Azad hit out at PM Narendra Modi for failing to make any statement on the ongoing Kashmir violence.

Opposition leader Azad said that PM Modi tweets on events across the world, but he was silent on the issue of Kashmir. The PM Modi tweets about the Africa, when something happens in Africa. But when the Taj(Kashmir) of India is burning, the heat is not reaching the Central government.


Azad added that we did not hear the statement of Prime Minister on the issue of Dalit in the Parliament. We got to hear about PM views from Telangana.  The party have been demanding that the PM should come and make statements on such issues in the Parliament.

Opposition leader Azad also attacked Modi for quoting former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee in Madhya Pradesh, when he touched upon the topic of Kashmir.

PM Modi said that his government believes in the mantra of Vajpayee of Insaniyat, Jamhooriyat and Kashmiriyat.

On this Azad said that the words of Vajpayee do not suit Prime Minister Modi.

Azad also added that Everyone in Kashmir is a victim of militancy. Many of us have lost their near and dear ones because of militancy in Kashmir. There is a difference between communalism and separatism.

Azad said that You call J&K an integral part of India, but there needs to be integration of the heart. Between people of India & J&K.

The congress leader, referring to Modi’s comment that all Indians love Kashmir, said that One should not love Kashmir for its beauty and nature alone. One should love people out there as well.

He said that Love the people who live there. Love the children who lost their vision due to pellet injuries.

Earlier, Azad associated himself with the views of BSP leader Satish Mishra on the issue of Dalit. Azad took a jibe on the PM for making statement on the issue of Dalit from Telangana and not in Parliament.

On Tuesday, PM Modi had reached out to the people of Kashmir and indicated his willingness to hold dialogue under the framework of the Insaniyat (humanity), Jamhuriyat (democracy) and Kashmiriyat.

PM Modi said that when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the prime minister, he had adopted the path of ‘Insaniyat, Jamhuriyat and Kashmiriyat’ and the present government also walks on the same road.
