BJP revived Militancy in Jammu and Kashmir: Ghulam Nabi Azad

Ghulam Nabi Azad

New Delhi, Oct 16 : Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said militancy has been revived in Jammu and Kashmir by the Bharatiya Janata Party.

“Terrorism got revived ever since BJP came into power at the centre because they couldn’t handle the situation, they had no cue about the Jammu and Kashmir politics except the sloganeering. In J&K, militancy is on rise because of the mishandling of affairs by BJP govt.”

“This does not happen in a democratic country. The world was proud of India’s democracy. This government is suppressing the voices of the people,” he said.

Azad, the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, was also critical of the detention of Abdullah’s daughter and sister for protesting against the abrogation of Article 370.

“It is sad that the family of political leaders like Farooq Abdullah were arrested by the police for holding a silent protest. They were just sitting quietly in the park holding placards. Not only that, several other small leaders who do not have any charges against them have also been put behind bars. The female protesters were manhandled by the police and were locked up in the Central Jail. This kind of behaviour by the Centre is unacceptable,” he further stated.
