Mayawati slams Congress for Kashmir visit, says it only gave Centre chance to do politics
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) President Mayawati has criticized the Congress over the Kashmir visit of opposition leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, to take stock of the situation after the withdrawal of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5.
The BSP chief on Monday said the Kashmir visit only gave a chance for the BJP and Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik to politicise the issue.
As Mayawati reiterated her party’s support to the elimination of provisions of Article 370, the BSP chief said the Congress and other opposition leaders should have waited for the situation to normalise in the Valley. “Isn’t the recent visit of the Congress and other opposition parties to Kashmir without permission act as a chance for the Centre and Jammu and Kashmir Governor to politicise the issue?” Mayawati asked in a series of tweets on Monday.
