Kashmir issues raised by Rahul needs discussion: Mehbooba

PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said the issues related to Jammu and Kashmir raised by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in Parliament during the ongoing Budget session demand a serious debate.

The former chief minister while lauding the Congress leader’s speech said he had walked the talk by putting into perspective the constitutional values of India.

“Speaking truth to power in today’s India is dangerous. Rahul Gandhi walked the talk by putting into perspective constitutional values that define India. His misgivings about GOIs strategic blunders in J&K that led to external challenges demand a serious debate & corrective measures,” Mehbooba tweeted.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked the government alleging that two Indias, one for the rich and one for the poor, have been created and the gap between them was widening.

Speaking first from the Opposition side in the Lok Sabha during the debate on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address, he said the address to a joint sitting of Parliament didn’t touch the central challenges facing the country and was a “list of bureaucratic ideas” instead of a strategic vision.

The presidential address made no mention of unemployment, the Congress leader claimed.

There are two Indias — one for the rich, one for the poor — and the gap between the two was widening, Gandhi alleged and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to start working towards bringing the two Indias, created by this government, together.

He claimed that 40 percent of India’s wealth has gone to a chosen few.
