Bharat Jodo Yatra

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah has stressed for a bilateral between India and Pakistan as he stressed that terrorism is alive in the erstwhile state, and can only be ended if both neighbors sue for peace.

The National Conference (NC) chief lashed out at the ruling BJP for “spreading hatred” endangering the integrity of India.

Abdullah asked why the Narendra Modi-led BJP regime is “shying” away from talks with Pakistan if they can get China on the table, a country which has infiltrated into India 16 times, why not Islamabad.

“I am going to give you in writing with my blood that terrorism is alive and it will not finish till you start talking to Pakistan,” Abdullah was quoted as saying.

The former chief minister also said the Kashmiri Pandits need a balm for their wounds, which is possible when you replace hatred with love.

Abdullah reached Kathua by bus from Jammu and participated in the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra which entered this entry point via Pathankot in Punjab Thursday evening to begin the Congress heir’s last leg of his foot march from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.

Abdullah, when asked, whether talking to Pakistan can end terrorism in the conflict-riddled region, alleged that the BJP government was reluctant because they’ve to keep Muslims and Hindus divided by hatred in order to cater to their vote bank.

Abdullah alleged that they (BJP) are “spreading hatred without caring for the safety of Pakistani Hindus or Indian Muslims.”

He said there is a need to soothe the wounds of Kashmiri pandits who have suffered a lot over the past 30 years.

Taking a dig at the controversial film Kashmir Files, Farooq Abdullah said the film was made only with the agenda to spread hatred and disrupt communal harmony.

Abdullah said both Kashmiri Pandits and Muslims suffered and even his workers and ministers were killed in large numbers since the eruption of terrorism.

“One of my ministers was blown to pieces by a bomb planted in his car. They were killed for hoisting the tricolor. We had a choice to choose between India and Pakistan in 1947 but we preferred India as we believed that we will live honorably and with rest in the country,” the NC leader said.

Don’t let tainted ones to use Bharat Jodo Yatra to whitewash themselves

Meanwhile, Farooq’s son and former chief Minister Omar Abdullah, has cautioned the Congress to not let leaders with tainted recent records to join the march as some “might use” it to “whitewash themselves”.

Asked if leaders like alleged “rapist supporter” in Kathua rape case, Chaudhary Lal Singh, should be allowed to join the Yatra, Omar warned that Congress will have to see that some people “might use the yatra to whitewash their past”.

“We should not forget the role of those leaders who tried to save the rapist and played with the sentiments of the people. It is not hidden. These leaders will use the yatra to present themselves as secular. This is wrong. Congress leaders should see who is joining the yatra and what the recent track records have been of those leaders,” Abdullah was quoted as saying.

However, another former chief minister and People Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti said that it doesn’t matter who joins the Yatra as the “motive” behind the march was more important.

Mufti said that thousands of people are joining Rahul Gandhi on the streets “trying to stitch back the fabric” of the country, and it hardly matters who joins as long as the motive is fulfilled.

On Tuesday, Jammu and Kashmir Congress spokesperson, Deepika Pushkar Nath resigned from the party after the grand-old party’s J&K unit gave a nod to let former minister Lal Singh to participate in the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Singh had publicly defended the accused in Kathua rape case back in 2018.

Nath, a lawyer by profession, had also supported the family of Kathua rape victim with legal assistance.

The news of Nath’s resignation came to the fore after she tweeted about the same where she had written that she resigned from the party on ideological grounds.

The Congress spokesperson in a Tweet wrote and said that in lieu of Lal Singh’s proposal of joining the Bharat Jodo Yatra and the outfit allowing for the same, she is left with no other option but to resign from the Congress party.

In her Tweet, she alleged that Lal Singh was responsible for sabotaging the the Kathua rape case in 2018 by brazenly defending rapists. In the Tweet thread, she also added and said that Lal Singh divided the entire region of Jammu and Kashmir to protect the rapists whereas Bharat Jodo Yatra is working to unite. She also wrote and said that on ideological terms, she cannot share the party platform with such people.

Kharge further reminded what PM Modi also said through the Common Eligibility Test, it will eliminate multiple examinations and save precious time as well as resources. It will also give a big boost to transparency.

Questioning the Modi government, Kharge asked why has NRA not conducted a single exam in the last 4 years. He wondered despite allocating Rs 1,517.57 crore to NRA, only Rs 58 crore has been spent in 4 years.

Was NRA deliberately kept inactive to deprive SC, ST, OBC, and EWS youth of their reservation rights? the Congress chief charged. NTA committed fraud, paper leaks, and scams, and NRA didn’t even conduct the exam. BJP-RSS has taken up the task of ruining the education system and destroying the future of the youth, he slammed Centre.

The Congress chief response comes a day after PM Modi cited a recent Reserve Bank of India report on employment, saying that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government’s commitment to stability and growth.

The Prime Minister took a jibe at the Opposition and said that the creation of eight crore new jobs in the past three to four years has silenced those who are spreading false narratives about unemployment.

PM Modi added that those spreading false narratives are enemies of investment, infrastructure development, and the country’s growth. He also said that Opposition policies betray the youth and hinder employment, adding that he said now Opposition is being exposed as people reject their lies.
