BJP should read before criticising autonomy for Kashmir: Chidambaram

Most people in J&K want autonomy when they ask for'azadi: P Chidambaram in Rajkot Gujarat

"Yes, I do", Chidambaram said when asked if he thought that Jammu and Kashmir should be given greater autonomy.

"Congress people have no right to criticise the government because it is the party responsible for the Kashmir issue due of its wrong policies and wrong approach towards terrorists", he told reporters.

Chidambaram's response was that Modi hadn't read his comments fully, and that he was attacking a "ghost". And that means that they want greater autonomy.

A day after veteran Congress leader and former Union finance minister P. Chidambaram made controversial remarks on "Azaadi" and greater autonomy for Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at the Congress party saying the "Azaadi" remark was an insult to soldiers guarding innocent Kashmiris from terror in the strife-torn state. "Congress party will have to give an answer for this remark", Modi said.

"I want to ask the people of Bengaluru". "They are talking the language of separatists and pro-Pakistan elements".

He said the restoration of the constitutional situation in Jammu and Kashmir to its pre-1953 status had been discussed in detail by former chief minister Sheikh Abdullah with former prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1974-75. I want to ask the residents of Bengaluru, can such people, who play politics on the sacrifices of the fearless soldiers, do good for the country... He had warned otherwise the country will have to pay a "heavy price". The Congress sought to distance itself from the remarks of Chidambaram on Kashmir, saying the "opinion of an individual is not necessarily the opinion of the party". "It is hurting India's national interest, and this is a very serious issue", he said. "We continue to strive for the restoration of autonomy and restoration of Article 370 to its original, pristine form", the resolution passed at a delegates' session of the NC reads. The NC also asked the government at the Centre to end what it alleged was its "muscular policy" vis-a-vis the state.

"Congress has always believed that dialogue and discussion is the way forward for restoration of normalcy in the state, but it can only be within the framework of our Constitution".

"Congress has always worked towards providing equal development, equal financial allocation and equal opportunities to the three regions of state of Jammu and Kashmir", he added.
