Mayawati slams Congress and opposition parties over Kashmir visit, says govt should be given time

Mayawati asserted that even the Supreme Court has stated that the government should be given some time to handle the situation.

BSP supremo Mayawati has slammed the Congress and other opposition parties for their attempted visit to Kashmir. Criticising their intention behind the visit Mayawati stated that the opposition leaders should rather have waited and given the government some time to normalise the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Taking to Twitter, the BSP leader, who had supported the central government’s decision over Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir slammed the Congress and other parties for trying to politicise a delicate situation.

Mayawati stated that Babasaheb Ambedkar was never in support of Article 370 because he was for establishing India’s sovereignty and was a believer of equality. She stated that this was the reason she and her party had supported the government over the decision.

She further stated that the government’s step has come 69 years after India’s constitution was implemented and it will take some time for the situation to be normal there. She asserted that even the Supreme Court has stated that the government should be given some time to handle the situation.

Mayawati added further that in this situation, it was not appropriate for the Congress and other opposition parties to go to Kashmir and attempt to politicise the situation. She further asserted that the parties should have waited and thought over their actions before going to Kashmir.

It is notable here that Mayawati was one of the prominent regional leaders who had supported the government’s decision regarding Article 370 despite being a part of the opposition.

Andhra CM and YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, BJD’s Naveen Pattnaik were the other party leaders outside the NDA with considerable parliament representation that had supported the government and had contributed to the bills being passed in both houses with an overwhelming majority.
