Rajkot: Former finance minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram today said that when people of Jammu and Kashmir ask for "azadi", majority mean they want greater autonomy.
He said the party had constituted a policy-planning group under the chairmanship of former prime minister Manmohan Singh to carry forward the peace initiative in the state.
"Out of 70 years of India's independence, its Mr Chidambaram's party- the Congress- has been at the helm of affairs for nearly 50 years at the Centre as well as Jammu and Kashmir".
"I am not surprised because Mr Chidambaram remark reflects the Congress party's mentality", she added. She added that Rahul Gandhi is known to have supported those people who had given the statement "Bharat Tere Tukde honge" in JNU crisis.
"For them, to talk about "azaadi" where Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was born who gave his entire life and all his efforts so that India stood united under one constitution. What is the message Congress is trying to give, that at their doorstep of political gain they are willing to sacrifice nationhood?" said Irani. Former Finance Minister Chidambaram issued these statements in poll-bound Gujarat ahead of the forthcoming Assembly Elections in the state.
"The demand in Kashmir is to respect in letter and spirit the Article 370 and that means they want greater autonomy". Earlier he had said, "I want to tell the youth of Kashmir and I've said this time and time again, come into the mainstream, you have a right to speak in a democracy".
The former finance minister's statement comes close to the heel of appointment of former Intelligence Bureau director Dineshwar Sharma as interlocutor for J-K by the Modi government.
Chidambaram said the question of greater autonomy should be "seriously examined" and it should be considered in which areas it could be granted.
Reacting sharply to P Chidambaram's remarks on autonomy to Jammu and Kashmir, Jaitley said that the Congress is deceiving the country, itself by encouraging separatism in the state."It is hurting India's national interest", he told ANI.
