NEW DELHI: The Rajya Sabha on Wednesday took up a discussion on Jammu and Kashmir issue, a day after the Upper House witnessed noisy scenes during the Zero Hour with the Opposition demanding a discussion.
Raising the issue, Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad expressed serious concern over violent incidents in the valley resulting in the death of civilians and security personnel.
Coming down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not addressing the concerns of the Kashmiris in Parliament, Azad said there is murder of humanity and democracy in Kashmir and called for integration of hearts for an amicable solution to the crisis.
Escalating his attack on the Prime Minister, Azad said he tweets about everything, but not Kashmir.
“You call Jammu and Kashmir an integral part of India, but there needs to be integration of hearts between the people of India and Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday reached out to the people of Kashmir and indicated his willingness to hold dialogue under the framework of the ‘Insaniyat (humanity), Jamhuriyat (democracy) and Kashmiriyat’.

Ghulam Nabi Azad on Kashmir
“We did not hear PM’s statement on Dalit issues here in the Parliament. We got to hear about his views from Telangana. We have been repetitively demanding that PM should come and make statements on such issues (Kashmir & Dalit issues) in the Parliament. PM addresses on Kashmir issue from Madhya Pradesh and not from Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha. I don’t know when the capital and Parliament was shifted” : Ghulam Nabi Azad
