Rahul Gandhi accuses Modi govt of creating political vaccum in Kashmir by arresting leaders

It’s obvious that the government is trying to remove nationalist 🇮🇳 leaders like Farooq Abdullah Ji to create a political vacuum in Jammu & Kashmir that will be filled by terrorists.

Kashmir can then permanently be used as a political instrument to polarise the rest of India.

The government should stop creating space for terrorists in Jammu & Kashmir and release all nationalist leaders ASAP.
