No power can permanently integrate JK with India: Dr Beg
New Delhi: The senior National Conference leader Dr Mehboob Beg on Thursday said that no power can permanently integrate Jammu and Kashmir with India till the politicians in Delhi accept that the Kashmir issue was political in nature.
'Till you don't do that, no power in the world will make the state a permanent part of India,' Beg said during a parliamentary debate on the prevailing situation in the Kashmir Valley were 64 people have been killed since June 11. Jammu and Kashmir, he said, acceded to India on the condition that its 'fully autonomous status' would not be tampered with.
'When Kashmir acceded (to India), there was a negotiation on the future of the relationship. The accession was with a fully autonomous Jammu and Kashmir,' he said. 'It was not the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party)... it was the National Conference and its leader Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah who preferred to accede to India of (Jawaharlal) Nehru, (Mahatma) Gandhi and Moulana Abul Kalam Azad,' he said.
