New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma has taken a dig at Jammu and Kashmir administration after being sent back to Delhi from Srinagar airport.
Sharma was part of a delegation of Opposition leaders who went to Srinagar to see the ground reality after the repeal of special status to Jammu and Kashmir. They were not allowed to go outside the airport and were subsequently sent back to the national capital on Saturday.
Sharma said here upon his return from the Valley: “I have seen such hospitality for the first time – first invite, then detain”.
“People are in pain. No one knows what is happening there”, the senior Congress leader said. The situation is “bad on the ground” but the government was projecting as if everything is normal.
