PM Attacks Congress, Says Speaking In Same Voice As Kashmiri Separatists

039;Azadi' actually means 'autonomy' for most Kashmiris Chidambaram

Taking a dig at the Congress ahead of the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Executive Meet, Dr Singh said, "I think all of us need to remind P Chidambaram (the Congress leader) the kind of situation we face in Kashmir today is an accumulative outcome of the axe of omission and commission committed by his party, which was at the helm of affairs for as many as nearly seventy years after Independence both in the state and the Center".

Former chief ministers and National Conference leaders Omar and Farooq Abdullah have jumped in the controversy which has erupted over senior Congress leader P Chidambaram's call for more autonomy for the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Former union finance minister P. Chidambaram, while addressing the mediapersons in Rajkot on Saturday, expressed his views on the raging "Kashmir issue" and stated that the government must consider areas to give autonomy to J&K. "Those who criticise must read the whole answer and tell me which word in the answer was wrong". "Why are Congress leaders lending their voice to those who want Azadi in Kashmir. This is an insult to our fearless soldiers".

Criticising Chidambaram's stance on Kashmir, the Prime Minister said such statements undermine the armed forces achievements like carrying out surgical strikes.

"The recently announced initiative through a representative of the Government of India should have clarity and seriousness of goal to ensure the sanctity of the institution of dialogue is restored and upheld", the party resolution said.

Meanwhile, the Congress party has sought to distance itself from the remarks of its senior leader P Chidambaram on Jammu and Kashmir, saying the "opinion of an individual is not necessarily the opinion of the party".

"Yesterday's statement of a Congress leader on Kashmir clearly shows how the party feels on surgical strikes and bravery of our Army", Modi said, while describing Chidambaram's statement as "unacceptable".
