He also lamented that Kashmir’s mainstream political leaders have been jailed at secret locations and termed it “unconstitutional & undemocratic.”
Meanwhile, during a debate on Indian government’s abrupt decision on Jammu and Kashmir in Lok Shaba today, a Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury sought clarification on how the United Nations is monitoring Kashmir since 1948 if the region is an internal issue of India, Radio Pakistan reported.
He questioned that why India signed Shimla Agreement and Lahore Declaration, was that an internal matter or bilateral?
The Congress leader said the government had thrown rules and regulations out of the window by proposing to create two union territories out of Jammu and Kashmir.
