The Congress slammed the government over its approach towards handling the issue of Kashmir. He also took over the central government for cancellation of foreign secretaries meet. He said, “very complex, historical problem” cannot be solved by giving ‘half-baked and shortsighted’ statements”.
“The kind of statements this government is making about Jammu and Kashmir is insensitive in the extreme. They seem to indicate that there is no problem in Jammu and Kashmir except a law and order problem, but it is not true. There is a very complex, long drawn historical problem”, said Salman Khurshid, the Congress leader and former Union Minister for External Affairs, at the AICC briefing.
Mr. Khurshid also slammed the government saying that the Centre was ‘completely unprepared’ for the foreign secretary level talk.
Responding to the demands of a Hindu Chief Minister for Jammu and Kashmir, he said, “Do we say that about any other state? Why only so and so. Let people of Jammu and Kashmir decide for themselves.”
