SAMosa Takes

The Sangh Parivar has been articulating two different discourses about Kashmir since August.

 

The government’s new interlocutor will arrive in Srinagar on Monday, the storm winds of history pushing back against his face.

 

The information on return of power projects to the state has been denied. The CIC has upheld the contention of the NHPC.

 

A flurry of commentary has followed the appointment of former director of the Intelligence Bureau Dineshwar Sharma, as the Centre’s representative (the title ‘interlocutor’ was studiously avoided) to “initiate and carry forward a dialogue” in Jammu & Kashmir (J&K).

 

The Supreme Court’s deferment of the hearing of pleas challenging Article 35-A of the Indian constitution, conferring special rights and privileges on Jammu & Kashmir’s permanent residents, has eased the significant tension that had built up in recent days in Jammu & Kashmir.

 

It is an open secret that India and Israel share close ties; be it defence cooperation or political capital the nations have always come to each other aid. Now it seems that India is set to follow Israel model for annexing territory too.

 

The government-appointed interlocutor for Kashmir, Dineshwar Sharma, has his work cut out.

 

 

The use of brutal force to suppress the agitation by Kashmiris has aggravated the law and order situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

 

Jhelum and Tawi Flood Recovery Project (JTFRP), which is funded by the World Bank, is a promising venture. The Rs 1500 crore project was sanctioned in early 2016 and was formally launched by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti in November 2016.

 

I welcome the appointment of Dineshwar Sharma, former director of the Intelligence Bureau, as an emissary of the Government of India to initiate a dialogue in Kashmir.
