Rahul Gandhi Accuses Modi Of Opening Up Space For Terrorists In J-K:- Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi has been accused by Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday. Gandhi accused Modi of massively opening up space for the terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing the students of University of California, Berkeley on ‘India at 70: Reflections on the Path Forward’, Gandhi said that he had worked with former prime minister Manmohan Singh and senior leaders like P. Chidambaram and Jairam Ramesh, when the United Progressive Alliance (UPA), led by the Congress, was in power to resolve the problems facing Jammu and Kashmir for nine years.

Currently, Gandhi is on his two-week visit to the U.S. During his US visit, Gandhi would interact with global thinkers and political leaders, and address overseas Indians as part of an outreach initiative by his party.
“For nine years, I worked behind the scenes with former prime minister Manmohan Singh, P. Chidambaram, Jairam Ramesh and others on Jammu and Kashmir. When we started, terrorism was rampant in Kashmir, when we finished there was peace, we had broken the back of terrorism. By 2013, we basically broke the back of terror, I hugged then prime minister Manmohan Singh and told him it was one of the biggest achievements,” he added.
Gandhi further added that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had been instrumental in bringing youngsters in politics, but the day Prime Minister Modi made alliance with the PDP, he destroyed them. “So he (PM Modi) massively opened up the space for the terrorists in Kashmir, and you saw the increase in violence,” he added. The Kashmiri youth had been given a “vision” and employment opportunities by the Congress government.
