What is the guarantee that J&K situation won’t get repeated elsewhere, asks Alagiri
By The Hindu 07-Aug-2019
Addressing a press conference on the revocation of the special status granted under Article 370 to Jammu and Kashmir by the Central government, Mr. Alagiri asked, “Who will have faith in the Indian Constitution anymore? How will those of various faiths and religions trust it? What is the guarantee that this situation won’t come to Tamil Nadu, Kerala or West Bengal?”
The Congress leader said this decision cannot be viewed in isolation any longer, as though it involved only Jammu and Kashmir. “They are trying to rewrite history. They are blaming Nehru for the problems. But if Nehru had not taken this up, Kashmir would have gone to Pakistan,” he said.
The Narendra Modi government was undertaking a lot of wrong deeds to rewrite history, he said. “Just like how Hitler and Mussolini rewrote history, Modi is trying to do that here,” Mr. Alagiri alleged, adding, “He won’t succeed. How can you implement a rule without the Assembly approving it?”
Mr. Alagiri slammed Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement that there was no Assembly in Jammu and Kashmir, and hence, the Centre was revoking its special status. He said [post-partition] Muslims in Kashmir decided to stay in India and did not want to be a part of Pakistan.
