ISLAMABAD: Indian politician and former Indian minister, P Chidambaram has said that Jammu and Kashmir is a big jail and Modi government has failed to achieve any results of August 5, 2019 actions.

In an article published, on Sunday, he said Project J&K was intended to break up the state, reduce its status to Union territories, bring the territories under the direct rule of New Delhi, suppress political activities, intimidate 7.5 million people of the Kashmir Valley into submission, and quell freedom struggle.

He said all major fundamental rights are effectively suspended. The Public Safety Act and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act are invoked indiscriminately. Cordon and Search Operations are conducted widely and daily to curb movement. All statutory commissions to uphold rights have been wound up. The new media policy is a candid admission that a free media has no place in J&K and it sanctifies censorship.
