Gupkar alliance wants to continue corruption at J&K, says RS Prasad, seeks explanation from Congress


Seeking an explanation from Congress to extend support for the Jammu and Kashmir Gupkar alliance, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Monday questioned recent “anti-national” comments by Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti. “Farooq Abdullah has waited for China’s support to recover Article 370 of the Constitution. Mehbooba Mufti has said that there will be no tricolor in Jammu and Kashmir before the restoration of Article 370. I want to ask you if you do not want national laws implemented in J&K. So that they can continue with the corruption ”.

The recent comment by national conference leader Farooq Abdullah on Article 370 has generated controversy, as he has been quoted as saying: “I am hopeful that with your support, Article 370 will be restored at J&K.”

His party subsequently denied the allegations and accused the BJP of twisting his words. “Our president expressed the anger of the people at the repeal of Article 370 and 35-A by Parliament on August 5 last year, as it has done consistently in recent months,” a conference spokesperson later clarified. National.

The head of the People’s Democratic Party, Mehbooba Mufti, on the other hand, said earlier that she would hold the tricolor flag and the flag of the former state of Jammu and Kashmir together.

Referring to these two comments that BJP called “seditious” and “anti-national”, Prasad said: “We have many questions to ask Congress, as it is also with the alliance now. Congress is free to link with any party it wants. We cannot question that. But we can question the agenda, ”said Prasad.

“There are two brutal truths of Jammu and Kashmir. India was divided, refugees came from Pakistan. Those left behind in Kashmir did not even get the right to vote, buy land or houses. But those who left Kashmir behind and came to Punjab and beyond became Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. Kashmir had a brutal fate, ”said the minister.
