Kashmir Highlights: ‘Whole world is waiting to see what happens’: Imran Khan

Political tensions, in the aftermath of revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and state’s bifurcation into two Union Territories, continued on Thursday after senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s comment that “anyone can be brought along with money” referring to NSA Ajit Doval’s Wednesday mingling with locals in valley invited sharp criticism from the BJP. Azad’s visit to the valley was later cut short at the Srinagar airport, and he was told to return to Delhi. Azad’s colleague and Congress leader in Lok Sabha, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, stirred the pot by comparing the J&K security clampdown to a “concentration camp”. However, Congress veteran and J&K statesman Karan Singh objected to a blanket condemnation of the government’s move on Jammu and Kashmir, saying UT status for Ladakh and restoration of women rights for J&K women were some positives worth taking note of. Earlier on Thursday, India asked Pakistan to reconsider its decision to scale down diplomatic ties with New Delhi and stated that Islamabad’s posturing to present an alarming picture to the world would not deter India from taking decisions on its internal matters including Jammu and Kashmir.
