Referring to ‘Kashmir Files’ in Lok Sabha, BSP MP said – should be banned immediately

Jammu-Kashmir Budget: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday presented a budget of Rs 1.42 lakh crore for the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir in the Lok Sabha for the financial year 2022-23. The opposition, citing rules, demanded from the government that they should be given sufficient time to study the budget proposals. Sitharaman also tabled the Supplementary Demands for Grants for the financial year 2021-22 for Jammu and Kashmir, amounting to Rs 18,860.32 crore, in the Lower House. He also moved a motion along with it by suspending some rules and allowing discussion to start on the day it is introduced in the House. During this there was also a mention of the film ‘Kashmir Files’. The BSP MP demanded a ban on this film.

Taking part in the discussion, Danish Ali of BSP said that the members of the Legislative Assembly should have the right to discuss the budget of Jammu and Kashmir, but this right has been taken away by this House. He said that the government had promised in the House that very soon Jammu and Kashmir would have an assembly, full statehood would be restored to it, but so far it has not been done.

Referring to the recently released film ‘Kashmir Files’ on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir, he said that people should not create an atmosphere of hatred by making such films. He said that any such film should be banned immediately.

National Conference’s Hasnain Masoodi said that the budget of Jammu and Kashmir is being presented in the Parliament instead of the Assembly, it is a question worth raising. He said that the state with a population of 1.5 crore has not got its own assembly for two and a half years.

He alleged that Article 370 was abrogated by bypassing the Constitution. He said that the government should answer whether it is the right of the Center to divide the state into union territories. He said that we should wait for the decision of the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court on this subject, but the government is running many exercises there including delimitation, which is an insult to the judiciary.

He said that there has been no reduction in terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. Masoodi said that there should be attention towards daily wage earners and temporary workers.

IUML’s ET Mohammad Bashir said that the government is suppressing the media not only in Kashmir, but everywhere. CPI(M)’s AM Arif also made similar allegations.

BB Patil of Telangana Rashtra Samithi said that Jammu and Kashmir has moved ahead on the path of development in two years due to the efforts of the government. He expressed hope that the government will take further steps for the overall development of Jammu and Kashmir.
