And what we have to stop militancy in the Valley, you won’t be able to do it in 50 years.

People have been killed in all 10 districts of J&K. Maximum damage was done in four districts of South Kashmir, alleged Azad.

He further asked, “Should locals be treated same way we treat militants? Should same bullets that are used on militants be used on innocents people of J&K.”

We stand with the government in ending militancy but we don’t support this kind of treatment with civilians, said Ghulam Nabi Azad on Monday.

Govts are run on trust & faith, but people of J&K have a sense of mistrust towards the current Government. Azad also said, “I’m not saying that Kashmiri people had complete faith when Cong was in power, but there was a sense of trust in some corner.”

Arun Jaitley

After Azad, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in Rajya Sabha said that there are times when we should rise above political differences for the nation.
