Anyone can be bought with money: Ghulam Nabi Azad on Ajit Doval's outreach to Kashmiris

Srinagar, Aug 8 (IBNS): In a fresh row stirred by the grand old party, Congress Rajya Sabha leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Thursday said anyone can be bought with money while commenting on National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval's outreach to local Kashmiris after the valley lost its special status.

Doval was spotted interacting and having lunch with some local residents of Kashmir.

Azad, who went to Kashmir on Thursday, was also stopped at the airport at a time Section 144 is still active imposed in Jammu and Kashmir.

Several Kashmir leaders including former Chief Ministers- Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti- have been kept under detention.

The Bharatiya Janata arty (BJP) government on Monday scrapped Articles 370 and 35A through a presidential order, a move which received a reasonable support from some opposition parties and few key Congress leaders like Jyotiraditya Scindia, Milind Deora.

Also the government took away the statehood of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated it into two Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir with an assembly and Ladakh without an assembly.

Earlier, Congress Lok Sabha leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury in the parliament asked Union Home Minister Amit Shah whether Jammu and Kashmir was an internal matter or a bilateral one. The statement was perceived as a major faux pas by the Congress.

Also Congress top brass Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi were seen exchanging glances in the Lok Sabha with an utter displeasure when Adhir made the comment.
