JAMMU AND KASHMIR CHIEF MINISTER RESIGNS
TOUCHING A RAW NERVE IN KASHMIR
CONGRESS PARTY FAILS KASHMIR YET AGAIN
By Manuwant Choudhary
Jammu and Kashmir is burning again thanks to the irresponsible step of the Congress Party chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to hand over a hundred acres land to the Amarnath Shrine Board, despite protests from its coalition partner the PDP, which has led to the J & K government falling and Ghulam Nabi Azad has handed his resignation.
For the Kashmiri militants it was time to strike back and for the communal BJP it was time to call Congress a communal party.
Communal strife grips not just the valley but other parts of the country as well.
And with elections anytime within the next year this marks the polarisation of comunal politics again in India.
Yet, I do not subscribe to the politics of todays political parties and I would like to say that the current failure in Kashmir is more grave than being understood now.
After 9/11 the Kashmir situation had changed, even the last elections which brought in PDP-Congress to power was free and fair and with terrorists forced to lie low it was India's best chance to solve Kashmir.
We lost that one chance by touching a raw nerve.
The tourists have left the valley. The Hindu pilgrims will visit Amarnath Shrine under great threats.
So I do not belive the BJP has Hindu or national interests in their heart either.
