SRINAGAR: Prof. Saifuddin Soz, senior Congress leader and former Union Minister on Monday said that charges leveled by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley regarding discrimination with Jammu are false and concocted.
In a press handout issued here, he said, “I take this opportunity to do a rebuttal, based on facts and figures, to the BJP leader Arun Jaitley’s allegation of discrimination against Jammu, made in his speech the other day at Jammu. Jaitley’s charges are nothing but falsehood and otherwise, also, his speech was loaded with sectarian considerations. He should know through facts and figures that the UPA-1 and UPA-2, in the recent past, fully ensured a ‘Balanced Development’ in all the three regions of the State. I wonder who must know it better than Jaitley who happens to be the Finance Minister of India! In fact, it was a great success for the Congress leadership and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to have ensured fully equity and justice in the economic development of the J&K State”.
“Arun Jaitley, one of the closest advisors to PM Modi during his visit to Jammu, the other day, has tried to add a dimension to the already difficult situation of strife in Kashmir. It is, perhaps, Jaitley’s response to the National Opposition’s charge that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has no policy on Kashmir and that he must change the narrative in his dispensation of governance viz a viz Kashmir”, he said adding that despite a severe situation of death and destruction in Kashmir, Modi had nothing to say, while he is known, nationally and internationally, to be speaking on issues, almost all the time.
