STATE TIMES NEWS
New Delhi: Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia on Wednesday said in Lok Sabha that there should be “plebiscite” in Kashmir as the situation in the Valley has deteriorated and the PDP-BJP government has “insulted” the “crown” of India.
“In Kashmir today, there is a need for plebiscite,” he said using Urdu word ‘Rai Shumari’ while initiating a discussion in the House on Kashmir situation.
“PDP-BJP government has shed all the principles.
Administration is divided and the government, which should support people, is using weapons against them,” Scindia said, adding “the wounds there can be healed only through humanity.”
While attacking the Centre and state government, the Chief Whip of Congress said, “There is a need to create an environment of peace and tranquility; growth and development.” Describing Kashmir as “an important part of the heart of every Indian”, he said, “but today that crown is being insulted. This I feel is irresponsible.”
He said the UPA government had created an environment of peace and harmony by taking everybody along.
