BJP-PDP Govt. in Kashmir resembles incongruous marriage, needs divorce: JD (U)

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The (United) on Monday took a potshot at the BJP-PDP in Kashmir and said the latter resembles an incongruous marriage which needs divorce.

"Both and PDP are equally responsible for the ongoing tensions in the valley. This is like an incongruous marriage which needs to be divorced as soon as possible because that will be benefitted for both the country and Kashmir," JD (U) leader K. C. Tyagi told ANI.

However, leader S. Prakash said that if Agarwal has any evidence about his statement then he should prove it.

"It is a very irresponsible statement from a leader. If he has any evidence then prove rather than making such sweeping remarks on the Chief Minister. This type of irresponsible statement is creating disturbance in the Kashmir valley," Prakash said.

While talking to ANI, the leader Naresh Agarwal yesterday said the people cannot expect peace in the valley till is the Chief Minister in Jammu and Kashmir.

"We cannot expect peace in the valley till is the Chief Minister. She herself is hand in glove with the terrorists. So many Jawans have lost their lives. She hasn't even visited them. Not even ministers from her have visited," he said.

He further asked the (BJP) to withdraw support to the state

Agarwal's statement came after Mehbooba said neither guns nor the Army could bring peace to troubled Kashmir.

Under attack from the Opposition for "shelving the promise of dialogue with the separatists", Mehbooba has told the assembly that there was "no other way but talks" for resolution of the Kashmir issue.

"Our soldiers are being martyred (in Jammu and Kashmir). Neither guns nor the Army can bring peace to troubled Kashmir," Mehbooba said.
