The emotional integration of people in Jammu and Kashmir is essential for Kashmir’s development
Voters swung towards BJP last time, not due to its ideology but because it promised development, economic betterment

The fact that Modi is using Patel’s image for polarising society is unfortunate
End of Congress may not be good for India as it provides an ideological platform with pronounced secular credentials
Communalism has taken over, and the atmosphere of secularism is, by and large, a memory of the past in Kashmir

The language status quo should continue until the nation can have a consensus on some other formula.
If a referendum were to be held today, the valley of Kashmir would vote for an independent state.
