Government draws flak in Lok Sabha

The Modi government and PDP-BJP dispensation of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday came under attack in the Lok Sabha over the unrest in the Valley, with Opposition alleging their failure to address the situation and pressing for a political solution.

As the House took up a discussion on the ongoing trouble in Kashmir, various parties demanded sending an all-party delegation to the Valley even as BJP member Anurag Thakur said every political party should come together and help in dealing with such situations.

Initiating the debate, Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia said over the last two years, since the BJP government came to power at the Centre, the situation in the Valley has “deteriorated” and has become “disappointing.”

Alleging failure on part of the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir government, Mr. Scindia said: “The work done by our government in the last 10 years was undone by this government. They see everything from the rear mirror. BJP-PDP has shunned all principles...we have to heal the wounds with humanity.”

The government is claiming that it is moving in every sector but reality is different.

“This government has miserably failed to restore peace in the valley. There is an environment of insecurity and fear ....Forty four people have died and 3,140, half of them security personnel, are wounded and this government puts the onus on the State....I would like to ask questions. How many more deaths will happen? When they will get up from sleep?” he asked.
