PM needs support on J&K policy

For the first time since 1947 we have a PM who has enormous credibility. But BJP must criticise in season and out of season. It just does not know when to keep quiet. By its reaction mentioned in this report it is doing everything to ensure that the present effort of the PM to find a solution to the problems of J&K shall fail. At the very least opposition parties should have done something to evolve a bipartisan approach to the Kashmir question.

For the first time since 1947 we have a prime minister who has enormous credibility. But BJP must criticise in season and out of season. It just does not know when to keep quiet. By its reaction mentioned in this report it is doing everything to ensure that the present effort of the prime minister to find a solution to the problems of J&K shall fail. At the very least opposition parties should have done something to evolve a bipartisan approach to the Kashmir question. But that is an approach too much for the ultranationalist BJP.

We know that historically ultranationalist parties, e.g., the Nazis, have been the scourge of humankind. Perhaps BJP wants to inscribe itself as a neo-Nazi party. When in power again it will doubtless seek to emulate Hitler and seek a 'final' solution by exterminating all who disagree with it (BJP) in their view of the J&K problem.
