Why Congress is playing ‘Manmohan Card’ on Kashmir Issue?

Why Congress is playing ‘Manmohan Card’ on Kashmir Issue?

Between the Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir today, a meeting of senior Congress leaders is going to be held in the house of former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Monday. Apart from Manmohan Singh, Dr. Karan Singh, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram, Leader of Congress Parliamentary Party Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ambika Soni will be present in this meeting. All these senior Congress leaders are part of the committee formed by the UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi on the issue of Kashmir. The Chairman of this committee is Dr. Manmohan Singh. Congress leaders are scheduled to meet Manmohan Singh’s house at 11:30 pm. According to the information from the sources, in this meeting, the political issue of Kashmir will be discussed. There may be a discussion about the alliance in the meeting.

In Jammu and Kashmir, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) recently withdrew support to Mehbooba’s led PDP-BJP government. After this, governor’s rule was imposed in Jammu and Kashmir. After the fall of the government, the plans of Congress and PDP alliance were also being neglected. Before this, Ghulam Nabi Azad talked about PDP-Congress alliance in Jammu and Kashmir neither in the present nor in the future. The leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad said that there is no question of any kind of making an alliance with PDP.

For the fourth time in the last decade, there has been governer’s rule imposed in the state and it is a coincidence that this happened four times in the same tenure of Vohra. Vohra became the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir in June 2008. In the last four decades, the state has ruled the governor for the eighth time. The six-year term of the current assembly will end in March 2021.

Manmohan Singh is known as one of the appropriate leaders of Congress. The polite, non-threatening demeanour that he possessed is best suited for that. He has a polite nudge, the inclination to share power and responsibility and plenty of these qualities, which makes him a great leader. He is firm when required, is receptive at times, is flexible when the situation demanded it. So on Kashmir Issue, he might be a Government making leader.
