New Delhi : Congress Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Thursday kicked up another storm comparing the situation in Jammu and Kashmir with Nazi concentration camps.
Slamming the government for imposing curfew and stopping mobile internet services in the Valley in the run-up to removal of Article 370, Chowdhury questioned whether PM Modi wants to bring development in the region by slapping the people with such restrictions.
“PM had announced from Red Fort that we’ll take Kashmiris forward not with bullets but by embracing them, but today situation in Kashmir is similar to that of a concentration camp. No mobile/internet connection, no Amarnath pilgrimage, what’s happening there?” Adhir Ranjan told news agency ANI.
Earlier Adhir Ranjan had earned the ire of both Sonia and Rahul Gandhi after he appeared to suggest that Jammu and Kashmir is not an internal matter during Lok Sabha debate over Article 370 abrogation on Tuesday.
“I have a doubt. Because you say that it is an internal matter. You have bifurcated a state. My point is, from 1948 Kashmir is being monitored by the UN, is that an internal matter? We signed the Simla Agreement and Lahore Declaration, was that an internal matter or bilateral? (Foreign Minister) S Jaishankar told his US Counterpart Mike Pompeo it is a bilateral issue, don’t interfere. Can Jammu and Kashmir still be an internal matter after that? You should explain,” Chowdhury said in the Lower House.
