Gambhir & Mufti Engage in War of Words – This Time over Amit Shah

BJP's newly elected parliamentarian Gautam Gambhir on Monday, 3 June, took to Twitter to criticise former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti for attacking Home Minister Amit Shah.

Mufti had criticised Shah for expecting a "quick fix" to the Kashmir issue.

"While I am all for a talk-based solution to Kashmir problem but for Mehbooba Mufti to term Amit Shah's process as 'brute' is 'ridiculously naive'. History has been witness to our patience and endurance. But if oppression ensures security for my people, then so be it," Gambhir tweeted.

‘Pakistan a Stakeholder in Kashmir Problem, Involve It Too to Solve It'

Earlier during the day on Monday, Mufti described Pakistan as a "stakeholder" in "Kashmir problem" and batted for involving it too to solve the tangle, news agency PTI reported.

She also accused Union Home Minister Amit Shah of resorting to "brute force" to "quick fix" the problem, which, she said, would be "ridiculously naive".

“Since 1947, Kashmir has been looked through the prism of security by successive governments. It's a political problem that needs a political redressal by involving all stakeholders inc (including) Pak," Mufti had said.

"Expecting a quick fix through brute force by newly appointed HM is ridiculously naive,” she added.

Shah on Monday took stock of the country's internal security situation at a meeting in New Delhi where the Union Home minister was apprised of the situation in Jammu and Kashmir too, particularly in its border areas.
