MPs from Europe are welcome to go on a guided tour of Jammu & #Kashmir while Indian MPs are banned & denied entry.

There is something very wrong with that

इतना ही नहीं राहुल गांधी के अलावा कांग्रेस के कई अन्य नेताओं के साथ साथ बीजेपी सांसद सुब्रह्मण्यम स्वामी ने भी इस मुद्दे पर सवाल उठाए. बीजेपी सांसद सुब्रह्मण्यम स्वामी ने भी इस मामले को लेकर सरकार को घेरा और दावा किया कि यह कदम “हमारी राष्ट्रीय नीति से उलट है.”

कांग्रेस के वरिष्ठ प्रवक्ता आनंद शर्मा ने दावा भी किया कि यूरोपीय नेताओं को आमंत्रित करने से जुड़ा सरकार का यह कदम भारत के उस सतत रुख के खिलाफ है कि जम्मू-कश्मीर हमारा आंतरिक मामला है.

आनंद शर्मा ने आरोप लगाया, ‘‘यूरोपीय संघ के सांसदों के लिए सरकार की ओर से रेड कार्पेट बिछाया जाना और उन्हें जम्मू-कश्मीर के दौरे के लिए आमंत्रित करना भारतीय संसद की संप्रभुता और सांसदों के विशेषाधिकार का अपमान है.’’

कांग्रेस के मुख्य प्रवक्ता रणदीप सुरजेवाला ने ट्वीट कर कहा, ‘‘जम्मू-कश्मीर हमारा, फिर यूरोपियन यूनियन वाले कैसे पधारे? हमारा मामला,हम देखेंगे! पर मोदीजी ने यूरोपियन यूनियन को कश्मीर में पंच क्यों बनाया? दूसरे देशों के सांसदों को कश्मीर जाने की अनुमति है, हमारे सांसदों को क्यों नहीं?’’ उन्होंने आरोप लगाया, ‘‘यह मोदी सरकार का फर्जी राष्ट्रवाद व संसद का अपमान है.’’

पार्टी के वरिष्ठ नेता जयराम रमेश ने ट्वीट कर कहा, ‘‘जब भारतीय नेताओं को जम्मू-कश्मीर के लोगों से मुलाकात करने से रोक दिया गया तो फिर राष्ट्रवाद का चैम्पियन होने का दावा करने वालों ने यूरोपीय नेताओं को किस वजह से जम्मू-कश्मीर का दौरा करने की इजाजत दी?’’

बता दें कि यूरोपीय संघ के 27 सांसदों का प्रतिनिधिमंडल मंगलवार को जम्मू-कश्मीर का दौरा करने वाला है. यह शिष्टमंडल अनुच्छेद 370 के प्रावधानों को रद्द करने के बाद वहां की स्थिति का आकलन करेगा. ये सांसद जम्मू-कश्मीर के स्थानीय लोगों से बातचीत कर उनके अनुभव जानना चाहते हैं.

Govt signals shift in stand, allows MEPs to visit Srinagar

EU Embassy in Delhi clarifies that the European parliamentarians are in India in their “personal capacity” and not as part of an official delegation.

Nearly three months after its decision on Article 370, the Union government has allowed a delegation comprising 27 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from Italy, Britain, France, Germany, Czech Republic and Poland to travel to Srinagar on Tuesday to see the situation there.

कश्मीर के मुद्दे को UN में रखने की बात पर, अधीर रंजन चौधरी “पाकिस्तानी”और देश द्रोही बन गये,लेकिन “यूरोपियन”सांसदों को कश्मीर में “विज़िट” कराने वाले,भारत माता के “सपूत” बने बैठे हैं.

This is the first time the government has allowed such a visit to the Kashmir Valley since August 5, when hundreds of leaders were taken into custody and communication lines cut.

On Monday, the MEPs met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu. At a lunch hosted by National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval, they met a few mainstream Kashmiri leaders, including former Minister Muzaffar Beigh from the PDP and winners of the Block Development Council polls in Jammu and Kashmir last week. They were also hosted for dinner by External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar.

“Urgent action must be taken against all those who support or sponsor terrorists or support such activities and organisations or use terrorism as a state policy,” the Prime Minister told the delegation in a reference to Pakistan, and hoped their visit to Srinagar would acquaint them with the development priorities of the region.

To visit schools
The delegation’s visit to Jammu and Kashmir was being coordinated with the NSA’s office, said officials there, as Mr. Doval has been the government’s point person on the move to dilute Article 370 and bifurcate the State into Union Territories on August 5. While in Srinagar, the MEPs are expected to visit schools, where class 10 exams begin on Tuesday, and receive briefings on the security situation.

Significantly, the majority of MEPs belonged to far-right, anti-immigration parties in the European Union, including Italy’sForza Italia, France’s Rassemblement National, Poland’s Justice and Law party, Germany’s Alternative Fur Deutschland (AFD) and UK’s Brexit Party.

However, a Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) official, who said other foreign groups may also be facilitated with a visit to Kashmir, ruled out any political bias in the invitations that went out, adding that they were “identified on the basis of their convenience to visit”.

The European Union (EU) Embassy in Delhi has clarified that the MEPs were in India in their “personal capacity”, and not as part of an official delegation. MEA sources said the Ministry was not involved in planning or funding the visit, and that the delegation had been invited by a relatively unknown NGO called WESTT, which is hosting them.

The decision to allow the MEPs to visit J&K marks a significant turnaround in the government’s policy after it faced considerable criticism in the EU and in the US over the Article 370 move. The government has thus far refused permission to any foreign journalist to cover the situation in J&K post August 5, and turned down requests from diplomats based in Delhi to visit as well. On October 3, it declined a request by visiting US Congressman Chris Van Hollen to visit Srinagar, and it was brought up by the State Department at a special hearing of the US Congress subcommittee on Human Rights that looked into concerns over Kashmir. UN Special Rapporteurs at the Human Rights Council have also issued statements protesting the denial of applications to visit.

The MEPs’ visit, which comes just a few days before the Presidential ordinance on reorganisation of J&K goes into place on October 31, follows concerns expressed by the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs that held a rare discussion on Kashmir in Brussels. In September, the European Parliament at Strasbourg held a debate, and MEPs met the “Friends of Kashmir group”. However, the Parliament refused to pass any resolution against India.

In a speech, delivered on her behalf, EU Foreign MinisterFederica Mogherini said the EU had taken up its concerns over “the situation on the ground, with its restrictions on fundamental freedoms,” directly with External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar when he visited Brussels prior to the meeting. “It is crucial that freedom of movement and means of communication are fully restored as well as access to all essential services,” the speech added.

Strange: we don’t allow Indian MPs to travel freely in Kashmir and meet people but we seem to be more than eager to allow EU members to do so! Surely, we don’t need a EU certificate ahead of one from our own MPs!!

So under our deshbhakt sarkar, Indian political leaders need court permission to visit Kashmir, while some dude from Slovakia gets the full red carpet?

Visit of EU MPs to Kashmir tomorrow comes at an interesting time. Most mainstream opposition leaders including 3 former Chief Ministers are still detained- for almost three months now. Shops only open a few hours a day while even key members of civil society are locked up.

Delhi: Members of European Parliament called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg today. The delegation would be visiting Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow.

And, by aligning with far right European MP’s what global PR does the Modi government think it is winning on Kashmir. This exposes the complete lack of any exit plan from the hasty abrogation of #Article370 A #demonetisation type disaster by Modi

ANI Office will be completely empty tomorrow. All their employees will be in Kashmir, pretending to be locals, some selling fruits, some buying, some walking on the road and will interact with the Unofficial EU Delegate and tell them how happy they are

@bainjal
And, worse even the far right European MP’s will not meet the three elected former CM’s of Jammu & Kashmir. currently jailed. 85 days of lockdown & counting this is epic mishandling of Kashmir by the Modi govt
