‘The then Chief Minister left the Hindus on their fate and went abroad’, Nirmala Sitharaman targeted Congress on the pretext of Kashmir files

new DelhiFinance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday targeted the Congress, referring to the film Kashmir Files, which depicts the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley. The Finance Minister said that the tweets of the opposition party on the subject reflect its stand of denying the truth. Nirmala Sitharaman said this in the Lok Sabha while replying to a discussion on the Supplementary Demands for Grants for the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir for the financial year 2022-23 and for the financial year 2021-22.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that while talking about the Kashmir files, one should remember the truth of that time that when so much was happening to Hindus, how did they come out of it. Despite this, the things that are coming out show denial of the situation, he said.

Taking a jibe at the Congress, he claimed that it was told from the official Twitter handle of the Congress party that Kashmiri Pandits left on their own in Delhi on their own volition and to take some advantage. The Finance Minister alleged that when Kashmiri Pandits were facing such troubles, there was a National Conference-led government in Jammu and Kashmir and the Congress party was involved in it.

The Finance Minister also alleged that the then Chief Minister left the Hindus on their fate and went abroad. Sitharaman also said that a photograph of a person allegedly involved in the killing of an Air Force officer meeting a former prime minister had also surfaced.
