He added that Congress has “always played the politics of blood, if anyone is singularly responsible for the mess in Jammu and Kashmir, it is the Nehru family. “Not just in 1947, even post-1947, repeatedly, whatever happened in Kashmir, if one person can be blamed for that, it is Nehru and congress himself,” Gupta said.
He added that the congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad trying to protect their mistake which they have done in Kashmir, whatever is happening in Kashmir is the mistake of congress and BJP will solve it now”.
Gupta further added, “Article 370 and article 35A of the Constitution are temporary laws which can be removed without a vote in the Parliament that once BJP will get full majority in State then BJP will removed 370, and 35A”.
He further added that whatever is happening in Kashmir it’s all because of article 35A. “The mistake which was done by Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah and Nehru reason behind crises in Kashmir”, he said.
He further added that uncomfortable truth is that Article 35A is a political tool by politically irrelevant groups like the Hurriyat to keep the embers of separatism burning; though things have improved dramatically under the Narendra Modi dispensation”.
Gupta further added Article 35A issue, that it was extra constitutional from its inception is now well established. We have lived with this 70-year-old mistake foisted upon us by a short-sighted Nehru despite the fact that the Jammu & Kashmir Constituent Assembly was disbanded on January 26, 1957.
