Bullet for bullet is not good for Jammu and Kashmir, Farooq Abdullah February 24, 2017 19:37

National Conference president Farooq Abdullah has called for resumption of dialogue between India and Pakistan to restore peace in Jammu and Kashmir, and said that the policy of "bullet for bullet" will only worsen the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. "If you want to improve the situation in Kashmir, then the only way is to start a dialogue. The talk of bullet for bullet will only make the things worse," Abdullah said. "Bullet cannot be an answer to a bullet. Bullet can be answered by patience, love and through dialogue. We should desist from that and hope India and Pakistan come to the dialogue table and a new phase of talks will resume so that this problem is resolved," the former Chief Minister said. Abdullah, who was a union minister during the previous UPA government, said it was "imperative that an effort be made towards restoration of peace (in Kashmir). Both the countries should talk peace. There is no other option." "Death and destruction should come to an end so that the people of Kashmir can live in peace. The tourism season is about to start and if this death and destruction continues, who will come here? Who is going to suffer because of that? It is the poor people here who depend on tourism," he said. "We have to take into account their (militants') sentiments. What is the reason for their taking up arms? A high-level judicial commission should be constituted to look into what is compelling the youth to take up arms," he said. Abdullah said "That is not right. That is unfortunate because if you have to address a problem, the solution does not lie in the gun but talks." "Dialogue is the only way and we have to tread that path. There is some reason why people are doing this (protesting near encounter sites). We have to look into that reason and address that reason so that the guns stop and peace prevails in the state," he said. "The present government (during electioneering) had made a promise to the people that they won't align with communal parties. (Former Chief Minister) Mufti (Mohammad Sayeed) entered into an agreement with them (BJP). The people will not accept this. And this is the one of the reason for it," he said. "It is regretful. Prime Minister should talk in such a way that unites people rather than creating a division. I had not expected such statements from the Prime Minister," he said. "We are not anyone's enemy. Neither are we India's enemy nor Pakistan's enemy, but we ask them to do justice with us. You have not done justice with us," he said. By Premji

KCR to Offer Gold Moustache Worth Rs 75,000 to Karavi Swamy Temple February 24, 2017 16:42

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is offering a ‘bangaru meesalu’ (gold moustache) costing around Rs 75,000 at Kuravi Veerabhadra Swamy Temple. This is happening after the controversial offering worth Rs 5.5 crore at the Tirupati temple in Andhra Pradesh. Chandrasekhar Rao has donated gold ornaments worth around Rs 5 crore to the famous hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara in Tirumala, to fulfill a vow he had made for the realisation of separate state – Telangana. Rao also plans to donate a golden crown for the idol of Goddess Bhadrakali of Warangal, a nose stud to goddess Kanaka Durga’s idol in Vijayawada and another to goddess Padmavathi’s idol in Tiruchanur. It was rumoured that, the money for the donations had come from CM Rao’s personal wealth. But, reportedly the money came from the Common Good Fund for the Endowments Department, a fund meant for the up keep and renovation of ramshackled temples. He was criticised by the main opposition parties Congress and BJP in Telangana for using the public money to fulfill his “personal vows” made to Tirupati temple in Andhra Pradesh. By Premji

Rahul Gandhi not Mature, Sheila Dikshit February 24, 2017 15:11

To a question on why the Congress has been decimated in several states despite aggressive campaign by party vice-president Rahul Gandhi, former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has said that Rahul is still not mature and should be given (more) time”. “You see, we are going through change. It is both a generational change and a change in politics from what it was till a few years back. The political language has changed quite a lot. For instance, you would not expect the PM to say what he said about former PM Manmohan Singh. In this change of approach, link, language and relationships, Congress is adjusting itself. And please remember Rahul is still not mature, his age does not allow him to be mature. He is what… in his forties. Please give him time. Having said all this, Congress believes in development of the weak and marginalised. Rahul is the only one who has spoken about farmers,” she said in an interview. “He is not yet prime minister because that opportunity will come later but he is doing things. He is attending meetings and he is one person who is known to speak his mind. I feel it is good that he is natural but if some feel that it is not so then one develops it on the way,” she added.
