BJP leaders on Sunday asked the centre to shun "Kashmir-centric" approach in the reconciliation process and said the UPA government should also take people of Jammu and Ladakh regions into confidence for lasting peace in the state.
The centre needs to shun "Kashmir-centric" policy and take the people and the leadership of both Jammu and Ladakh regions into confidence for lasting peace in the state, senior BJP leader and In-charge of Jammu and Kashmir Om Prakash Kohli said during a party seminar on 'The policies of Union government are creating confusion on the issue of Accession of J&K state with India.'
Kohli, a former MP, said the Congress is still pursuing the Kashmir policies formulated by the first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
"Instead of bringing peace and normalcy, these policies have aggravated the situation." Speaking at the seminar, Inder Mohan Sharma, Convener of the state BJP intellectual cell, demanded abrogation of Article 370, which give special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
Pradesh BJP president Shamsher Singh Manhas said that the solution to the Kashmir issue is to strictly implement laws of the land against the separatists.
