Congress leader Chidambaram: People demands autonomy for Jammu and kashmir”

The Congress today sought to distance itself from the remarks of former Union minister P Chidambaram on Jammu and Kashmir, saying the "opinion of an individual is not necessarily the opinion of the party".

Chidamabaram, during an interactive session in Rajkot, had said that people of J-K seek greater autonomy when they ask for "azadi". "My interactions in Jammu and Kashmir led me to the conclusion that when they ask for Azadi, overwhelming majority wants autonomy", Chidambaram had said.

"The demand in Kashmir is to respect in letter and spirit the Article 370 and that means they want greater autonomy".

Chidambaram, a former home minister, who has in the past advocated greater autonomy for Jammu and Kashmir, today reiterated that the state should be given more powers under Article 370 of the Constitution. He had warned that otherwise the country will have to pay a "heavy price".

Talking to, Jitendra Singh slammed Chidambaram for his statement and said that the Congress was responsible for the Kashmir problem.

The Union Textile minister took to his Twitter account and said that it was shameful given that Chidambaram spoke in Gujarat, the birthplace of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, a man who dedicated his life for the unity and prosperity of India.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala on Saturday replied to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's question whether P Chidambaram's statement on autonomy should be given to J&K is an official stand of Congress party.

"It's (autonomy) perfectly within the Constitution of India". It remains to be seen if BJP takes an aggressive line about Chidambaram's statement and how Congress reacts to it. "We do not need this advice".

Chidambaram's statements on Jammu and Kashmir came after the appointment of Dineshwar Sharma, ex-intelligence chief, as Centre's representative to begin the dialogue with all stakeholders in the state of J&K.
