Mumbai: Targeting centre led by PM Narendra Modi, Indian National Congress leader Kapil Sibal and asked why opposition leaders were not being permitted to visit the region.
His statement comes after government scheduled visit of 36 union ministers to Jammu and Kasmir to spread awareness about the central schemes and share views on abrogation of Article 370.
“They keep saying that the situation is normal in Jammu and Kashmir and they have not made any impulse. If yes, why are the ministers going to the people to understand the benefit of Article 370?
In so many months if people have not understood the benefits of the amendment made in Article 370, it means they are angry from the Centre,” Sibal told ANI.
“If everything is normal, why are they not allowing opposition leaders to visit Jammu and Kashmir and join the public?” He asked.
The ministers will visit Jammu and Kashmir from January 18 to January 25.
While the Citizenship Amendment Act remains on the agenda, after the repeal of Article 370, ministers will hold meetings with the people to share their views on the division of the state into two union territories.
These ministers are set to hold 51 meetings in Jammu and eight in Kashmir. They will share the vision and plans of their ministries for the development of the region.
The ministers will interact with the people, exchange views on the possibilities in the region and discuss the area of development in various fields. The feedback will be used to bring the fully normal state to UT.
The purpose of the outreach is clearly to strengthen the integration of the people of Jammu and Kashmir with the country.
