Congress to blame for Kashmir crisis: Amit Shah
BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday said the 'Kashmir problem' emerged because of Congress and expressed confidence that the Narendra Modi-led NDA government would soon control the present situation in the Valley. "What else can Congress say? The Kashmir problem emerged because of Congress," Shah said while addressing journalists here on Saturday.
He was asked to respond to the Congress allegations, which had reportedly accused NDA government of failing to control the situation in Kashmir.
Asked about Kashmiri students indulging in stone pelting at the security personnel, Shah said such situations had emerged in the past as well. "Kashmir faced such situations several times since 1989 (since onset of militancy in the state). It is not for the first time that such a situation had erupted and these situations were controlled. Whenever security agencies adopted a tough stand, such situations arose. I am confident that this situation will soon be controlled," he said.
