Cong asks Modi to accept blame for mess in Kashmir

NEW DELHI, Oct 11: Whom to blame when the Kashmir valley is burning and minorities are being blamed? There is no state government in the Union Territory and so the Centre should take the blame since it is in power there, the Congress asserted on Monday.

Wondering why the Modi government is not able to provide protection to the Kashmiri Pandits for whom Article 370 was abrogated, its spokesman Gourav Vallabh said the government had promised that after removal of Article 370, employment in Jammu and Kashmir will go up, the capital investment and FDI come to the valley and there would be a rush of the tourists, but nothing of that sort happened.

Instead, the unemployment is increasing, terrorism is increasing, he said, pointing out how a claim was made that demonetisation will finish terrorism. It is all because of mismanagement. "Today, the person who made that claim is not seen even in Varanasi, his constituency."

In contrast, he said, when the Congress was in power in J&K, the employment was going up and the foreign investments had also begun. Unless the people join, no movement can succeed he said, regretting that today the only model this government give is "Bhagodon ka saath, Bhagodon ka vikas" (company of fugitives and progress of fugitives).

In reply to a question, he said the RSS is the holding company and the BJP its subsidiary and so better to ask RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat as to standard of governance. He said Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath boasts of launching so many programmes. He challenged Bhagwat if he can identify at least one of Yogi's programmes that is functioning today to be seen as his contribution to the governance. If the holding company can't state it, what use is asking the subsidiary, Gourav added.
