Amit Shah rightly blames Nehru for Kashmir problem; But overlooks king-maker who misused veto-power by snatching right of Sardar Patel as first Prime Minister
New Delhi,04/07/19:Union Home Minister Amit Shah deserves all appreciation for his directly blaming Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru for creating Kashmir problem after snatching power of the then Union Home Minister Sardar Patel to look into the issue. But biggest surprise is that present nationalist government at the centre continues blindly politically worshipping a personality who was the real culprit at root level who misused his veto-power by snatching democratic right of Sardar Patel for becoming first Prime Minister of India and also doing injustice to majority community in so many ways apart from avoiding any help to save lives of great martyrs of freedom struggle of India.
BJP has won 2019-elections on its commitment to repeal articles 35A and 370 of the Constitution to make Kashmir at par with other Indian states in all respects. Central government should immediately present constitution-amendment bill in this regard without fearing majority in Rajya Sabha, in the manner it presented Triple Talaq Bill. There are several non-NDA parties like TRS, BJD, YSR Congress etc which can be persuaded to support the Bill. Even Congress is unlikely to oppose the bill in fear of complete extinct of oldest national political party, like it unwillingly did on GST Bill. Even if the Bill fails in first attempt, it can be re-introduced again after NDA gets majority in Rajya Sabha in time to come.
