India must recognise, tackle problems in Kashmir, says ex-PM Manmohan Singh

Manmohan Singh described the government’s demonetisation move as ‘ill-considered’ and GST as ‘hastily implemented

"Sir, you are a Sardar and also asardar (effective)", a comment which had former Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and senior party leader Ashok Gehlot, who flanked Singh, giggling.

Singh, a noted economist and former finance minister, disparaged the budgetary allocations made by the government for the defence sector, calling it "inadequate" given the current geo-political scenario in India's neighbourhood.

The situation in Jammu and Kashmir is worsening by the day, former PM Manmohan Singh said at the Congress plenary, a report mentioned.

"The BJP government made tall promises".

A report by media outlet NDTV said that Indicating the tensions inherent in the alliance of BJP and the PDP, parties with a huge ideological gap, Dr Singh said: "they have installed a government where the two wings of the administration are working against each other".

Reiterating that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India, Singh said India needs to accept that Kashmir has special problems that must be addressed in the right earnest.

However, he said both the countries must sort out all problems sitting together peacefully.

With regard to Pakistan, the ex-PM said the country is anxious about the "support that Islamabad provides to the cross-border terrorism".

"We must, therefore, warn Pakistan that this is a path, which is mutually destructive of peace and prosperity in the subcontinent".

He also alleged that there were many issues on the foreign policy front that had been poorly handled by the Modi government.

"He (Modi) said we will provide 2 crore jobs, we have not seen even 2 lakh jobs... It is obvious from the fact that our borders are insecure, be it cross border terror or internal". She launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying his government was "power-drunk" and the pre-poll promises of combating corruption and ensuring inclusive development were mere "dramebaazi". The former PM described the government's demonetisation move as "ill-considered" and GST as "hastily implemented".
