BJP’s national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Friday blamed the country’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru for the present situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Congress’s dilly-dallying policy has caused the present problem in Jammu and Kashmir. Had Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru given liberty to the Home Minister Sardar Patel to integrate Jammu and Kashmir with India like other princely states after the Independence, such a problem would not have arisen,” he said.

Nehru had “special attraction” for Kashmir, because of which he granted it special constitutional status, Vijayvargiya said.

The state has been witnessing violent protests since the killing of terrorist Burhan Wani in an encounter last month.
