Congress wants PM’s statement on Kashmir

New Delhi, Aug 10 (IANS) The Congress on Wednesday sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement in the Lok Sabha over the situation in the Kashmir Valley where a month of unrest has left over 55 people dead.

Raising the matter during Zero Hour, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge also slammed Modi for making a statement over the issue outside Parliament when the House was in session.

“The Prime Minister has broken his silence over the Kashmir issue and that too outside Parliament. If he would have given his statement in the House, it would have been better,” Kharge said.

He urged Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to tell Modi to give a statement in the House.

“We know the situation (in) Kashmir. The whole House is worried about it. You give them directions in this regard,” Kharge said.

The Congress demand for a discussion on Kashmir has come at a time when the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday took up the issue.

On Tuesday, Modi pledged to take forward former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s vision of Insaniyat, Jamahooriyat and Kashmiriyat.
