Indian-American Lawmaker Introduces Congressional Resolution On Kashmir

15

Washington: Indian-descent lawmaker Pramila Jayapal has introduced a resolution in the US House of Representatives that urges India to normalise the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Jayapal’s proposed resolution, which has been co-sponsored by Republican Steve Watkins, seeks to urge India to “lift the remaining restrictions on communications and restore internet access as swiftly as possible”, release detainees, allow international observers and journalists to visit the area, and “preserve religious freedom for all residents”.

For the resolution to be adopted by the House, it must secure 218 votes in the 435-member chamber and it could be immediately ascertained if it enjoys that kind of support.
