Congress leader Manishankar Ayiar, speaking on Jammu and Kashmir, has said that the problems of the state can only be solved if there is a discussion on Article 370 and 35A.
While speaking to ANI on Saturday, Congress leader Manishankar Aiyar said, “The final conclusion is that the problems exist in Jammu and Kashmir. To bring a solution we have to look at all of the problems collectively.”
“This will begin when Article 370 and 35A are discussed. Whether they would be abrogated altogether or would be continued in the future,” he added.
“It is necessary that the Supreme Court announce a decision on the topics which are called sub-judice,” he said on Saturday.
On the other hand, on June 10, hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh that now the whole world is looking towards India as its position has strengthened manifold.
Defence Minister Singh was interacting with intellectuals at Gopal Narayan Singh University Rohtas, Bihar where he said, “BJP fulfils promises, we abolished Article 370 and the grand Ram temple is now being built. Hum rajniti sirf sarkar banane ke liye nahi balki samaj banane ke liye karte hai. (We don’t do politics for forming a government but for the welfare of the society).”
Minister of State (Defence) Ajay Bhatt on Tuesday said that G20 has showcased that Jammu and Kashmir is on a path of development.
“This government has a zero-tolerance policy towards terrorism. Everyone knows how the government has been working. In Jammu and Kashmir as well, the government has been working for development,” he said.
Taking a dig at the opposition, Ajay Bhatt said the Modi government has proven everyone wrong by peacefully organising the G20 event in the state.
“When Article 370 was abrogated and many in the opposition said that there will be rivers of blood. However, nothing of that sort was seen in Jammu and Kashmir. The state is on the path of development now. Now race is to excel in everything. The G20 event hosted here has shown the change. The myth has been busted and Jammu and Kashmir is moving forward,” he said.
