Rise above ‘narrow confinements of power’, Congress urges Modi


The Congress Party on Tuesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to rise above narrow confinements of power to form a government with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Jammu and Kashmir, which is at present facing a severe deadlock. 

“The progress and path of development begins forthwith. So, we request Prime Minister Narendra Modi to rise above the narrow confinements of power and ensure that PDP-BJP Government is formed at the earliest, without trappings of power and in order to ensure progress, peace and development in Jammu and Kashmir,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said. “The manner in which for nearly last three months, the BJP and the PDP are setting terms with each other does not go well for our democracy. It’s important, particularly when every day we see Pakistan’s attacks on our borders, more so in Jammu and Kashmir, the way terrorists continue to infiltrate.its extremely important that a democratic government fulfils the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” he added. Surjewala further stated that a sensitive border state like Jammu and Kashmir is of paramount importance, adding that formation of a government and giving an elected government to the people of the state should be the first priority in the national interest.
