Hitting out at the Congress and Jawaharlal Nehru, Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday blamed the country's first Prime Minister for creating the Kashmir issue, alleging that it was him who gave a portion of Jammu and Kashmir to Pakistan, referring to the PoK.
"Who called for ceasefire back then? It was Jawaharlal Nehru who did it and gave that portion (PoK) to Pakistan. You say we don't take people into confidence, but Nehru ji did it without taking the then Home Minister into confidence. So Manish (Tewari) ji don't teach us history," Shah said in the Lok Sabha.
Slamming the Congress and Nehru, he said one-third of Jammu and Kashmir is not with India. "Who is responsible," he asked drawing a sharp reaction from the Congress members. The House witnessed disruptions over Shah naming Nehru.Shah also moved a statutory resolution in the Lok Sabha to extend President's Rule in Jammu and Kashmir for a period of six months.Moving the resolution, he said since the state assembly has been dissolved and the Election Commission has decided to hold fresh elections in Jammu and Kashmir later this year, it is essential that the President's Rule be extended for another six months with effect from July 3, 2019.
