Sena Attacks Modi Govt On Kashmir

16 March 2015

New Delhi: A leader of Shiv Sena, a constituent of the BJP-led NDA at the Centre, today accused the Narendra Modi government of 'compromising' on Hindutva issues and termed BJP's coalition with PDP in Kashmir as 'treason'. Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena MP and spokesman, said the only solution to the Kashmir problem was to abrogate Article 370 that has been a 'noose' around the country's neck since its inception. He was speaking at a seminar on 'Kashmir: Problem and Solution' organised by a forum 'We the Citizens' here. 'The responsibility to find the solution to the Kashmir problem lies not with the Parliament or the Assembly of Jammu and Kashmir. It is is with us and it requires courage. Abrogate article 370 that has been a noose around the country's neck for the last 60 years,' he said. 'Abrogating Article 370 won't lead to snapping ties with India. If any political leader makes any such comment then he has no right to continue in his post,' he said. 'During the polls you spoke of Ram Mandir, Article 370, finishing Pakistan off, Uniform Civil Code but what happened after the polls? The first compromise is always with hindutva to run government.
