Parliament LIVE: Amit Shah Says J&K Will Get Statehood At An Appropriate Time


Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said that the statehood would be given to Jammu and Kashmir at an “appropriate” time.

While replying to the discussion on the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill of 2021 in Lok Sabha, Shah said, “Many MPs said that bringing the bill means that the union territory would not get statehood. I am piloting the Bill, I brought it. I have clarified the intentions.”

“Nowhere is it written that Jammu and Kashmir would not get the statehood. Where are you drawing the conclusion from? I have said in this House and I say it again that this Bill has got nothing to do with the statehood of Jammu and Kashmir. Statehood would be given to the UT at an appropriate time,” he added.

Hours later, the Lok Sabha passed the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2021. It has already been passed by Rajya Sabha.

The lower house has adjourned till 4 pm on 8th March.

Shah also assured that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will not face any difficulty under the Modi regime.

“Manish bhai (Manish Tewari), recall Congress days. Thousands killed, curfew imposed for days. Adjudge the situation on basis of data. Peace in Kashmir is a big thing. I don’t want to recall the days of unrest. Such days won’t be there (J&K) again as it’s our government now,” said Shah.

The proceedings in Lok Sabha started with a few MPs chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman replied to the general discussion on the Union Budget. She asserted the incumbent government’s effort towards the economy amid the grip of coronavirus pandemic.

“Stimulus plus reforms – an opportunity has been taken out of the pandemic situation. A challenging situation like pandemic didn’t deter Govt from taking up reforms that are going to be necessary for sustaining long term growth for this country.”

Sitharaman said the Union Budget 2021 draws from the experience of the prime minister when he was chief minister when he saw so many revivals happening at that time.

“This Budget draws from the experience of the PM when he was CM – on the ground in Gujarat, seen so many revivals happening at a time when the license quota raj was going away post-1991 & then based on that experience, commitment to reform was blended into this Budget,” Nirmala Sitharaman said.

Meanwhile, 3 BJP members in Lok Sabha on Friday moved a breach of privilege notice against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, saying by asking members to observe silence to mourn the death of farmers during agitation without the permission of the Chair was a contempt of the House. BJP MPs Sanjay Jaiswal, Rakesh Singh, and P P Chaudhary moved notice against Gandhi. Jaiswal said that Gandhi directed his party members to observe silence without taking permission from the Speaker. The House should take action against him, he said.
