Amit Shah in Rajya Sabha: Those endeavouring to break India will be responded back in the same coin

Shah tabled Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Bill in Rajya Sabha after it was passed in Lok Sabha on Friday last week. He contended the bill intends to bring children along the international border (IB) into the mainstream.

In a blistering attack in the upper house of the parliament, Home Minister Amit Shah went all guns blazing against the anti-India brigade forewarning those who talk about disintegrating India will be responded back in the language they understand. Reassuring the people of Jammu and Kashmir, Shah said they have no reason to worry.

Shah tabled Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Bill in Rajya Sabha after it was passed in Lok Sabha on Friday last week. He contended the bill intends to bring children along the international border (IB) into the mainstream.

Shah said, “People who are living along the Line of Control (LOC) and Line of Actual Control (LAC) are included in the 3% reservation. However, the people living along the IB face similar kind of difficulties. Pakistan routinely violates the ceasefire and conducts shelling and firing, disrupts the peace and these children too should have equal opportunities.”

Shah asserted about 40,000 people from the last 70 years were waiting to get elected as ‘Sarpanch’ of their villages. It was the BJP that empowered these people and brought democracy to the villages in Kashmir.

He also expressed his anguish over the abject situation of the Kashmiri Pandits. “Kashmiri Pandits were expelled from their own state. Their religious places were desecrated. Once, strong Sufi culture pervaded throughout Kashmir but then Sufis were selectively targeted and eliminated,” Shah asserted.

Taking a dig at the Congress party, Shah said that BJP is not like Congress to hold elections on its own. “Under own rule, the Election Commission has full autonomy and authority to conduct elections in Jammu and Kashmir. We don’t run Election Commission as the Congress did,” he pointed out.

Shah also defended his party’s decision to form an alliance with the hardline party PDP in the state of Jammu and Kashmir and said, “The state gave a fractured mandate. It wasn’t our decision but it was people’s mandate for an alliance. When we thought separatism was being promoted, we withdrew our support from the government.”
