Union Minister Kiren slams Rahul Gandhi for his ‘BJP-PDP set fire to Kashmir’ remark

New Delhi: After the huge failure of political alliance in J&K with CM Mufti resigning and BJP pulling out from the coalition, the saffron party still does not want to acknowledge the failure.

Slamming Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi over his remark that “BJP-PDP set fire to Kashmir”, Union Minister Kiren Rijuju responded that it was Nehru- Gandhi family that ruined Kashmir, New Nation reported.

With BJP’s failure to maintain good ties with people in Jammu and Kashmir Congress Chief on Tuesday said “The opportunistic BJP-PDP alliance set fire to J&K, killing many innocent people including our brave soldiers. It cost India strategically & destroyed years of UPA’s hard work. The damage will continue under President’s rule. Incompetence, arrogance & hatred always fails.”

Responding to Gandhi’s remarks Union Minister Rijiju said it was former Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru and the Congress party behind the trouble created in J&K province.

“Sardar Patel ji solved all other regions. Nehru ji took charge of Kashmir & created more trouble. Thousands of people were killed, Kashmiri Pandits were slaughtered while more than 1,60,000 were forced out. Your family & party ruined Kashmir & you are accusing BJP?” tweeted the BJP leader.

Not just Congress party attacked BJP for snapping its ties with Mufti’s People’s Democratic Party(PDP) but other opposition parties too attacked BJP for its move.
