Arvind Kejriwal against referendum in the Kashmir Valley

By on January 6, 2014

Prashant Bhushan called for a referendum in Kashmir Valley to decide on deployment of the Army to deal with security threats in the valley. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he didn’t agree with Prashant Bhushan that there needed to be a referendum in the Kashmir Valley.

Kejriwal said, “We don’t agree with what Prashant Bhushan said about Kashmir, it’s his personal view. The feelings of the local people should be taken into account, otherwise it will be a threat to democracy. But our party is not in favor of any referendum.”

Meanwhile, Arvind Kejriwal may cancel licenses of power distribution companies if they refuse to allow audit of their accounts. The Delhi High Court permitted the comptroller and auditor general (CAG) to audit the accounts of private telecom companies.

The Aam Aadmi Party is organising a grand rally in Amethi on January 12. AAP leader Kumar Vishwas said that he will contest the general elections against Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi from his constituency in Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.

    We should refrain from commenting on sensitive issues because this will be politicized by the other political parties.

    let us think “out of the box” to resolve issues such as Kashmir. India should not “imitate the imperialism of USA or earstwhile Russia” in resolving issues. Let us introspect how much of India’s precious energies, resources, money, military prowess was wasted besides precious lives of innocent Kashmiris, Military personnel in the valley.? India definitely needs a permanent solution to Kashmir. Let us understand the history of India and kashmir at the outset.
