New Delhi, Oct 14: Congress senior leader Kapil Sibal on Monday hit out Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah for issuing contradictory statements about the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, which has been under unprecedented security cover after its special status was scrapped.
Taking to Twitter, Rajya Sabha MP Sibal mentioned election speeches by the two BJP leaders to highlight that all was not well in the state.
ON September 29, Home Minister Amit Shah announced that there are no restrictions in the Kashmir Valley and the situation will be normalised soon but PM Modi on October 14, said that Kashmir will be normalised in 4 months.
The grand old party slammed the lockdown in the Valley, snapping of communication lines and arrest of political leaders since August 5 when Amit Shah announced the decision to scrap the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and divide it into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
Opposing the government’s move, the Congress decided to boycott the Jammu and Kashmir local body polls as a mark of protest.
