In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW's Anand Narasimhan and Tanvi Shukla, panelists -- Rashneek Kher, Founder Member, Roots in Kashmir; Dr Sambit Patra, Natl Spokesperson, BJP; Rashmi Kanth, Spokesperson, Congress; Sushant Sareen, Consultant, Pak Project, IDSA; Bhim Singh, J&K National Panthers Party; and Lt Gen (retd) Shankar Prasad -- discuss the issue of J&K CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed stoking controversy, giving credit to Pakistan and separatists for peaceful polls in the state.
The PDP-BJP coalition government today got off to a controversial start with Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed saying that credit for smoothconduct of J-K assembly polls must be given to "people from across the border" only to be contradicted by BJP central leadership which said it was due to efforts of the ElectionCommission and the security forces. Soon after taking oath, Sayeed said credit must be given to people from across the border, an oblique reference to Pakistan, Hurriyat and militant outfits, for "allowing conducive atmosphere" for assembly polls. Asserting that there is no option other than talks with Pakistan over Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had deputed Foreign Secretary to begin talks with neighbouring country. Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah hit out at Sayeed's remarks and asked BJP to explain its stand.
