BJP Blames ‘Nehru’s Personal Image’ for Kashmir Issue



BJP President Amit Shah Wednesday blamed late Jawaharlal Nehru accusing him of having committed a “historic blunder” on Kashmir and the criticised the then Congress leadership for the partition.

Referring to the declaration of truce when tribal in 1948 were being repulsed in Kashmir, he said if such a decision was not made, the Jammu and Kashmir problem would not have existed today.

“Suddenly, without any reason….the reason is not known even today, truce was declared. Never has any leader of the country made such a historic blunder. If Jawahar Lal Ji had not declared a ceasefire at that time, the Kashmir issue would not have existed,” Shah said speaking at an event in the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) in New Delhi.

He claimed that this decision was taken to improve “one’s (Nehru’s) personal image,” and lamented that because of this a part of Kashmir is now with Pakistan.

The event was to commemorate Bharatiya Jana Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mookerjee, where Governor of Tripura Tathagata Roy gave a lecture.
