Unionist politicians in Jammu and Kashmir (J-K) have reacted sharply to the political remarks made by Chief Secretary BVR Subrahmanyam and alleged him of taking “pride in dismantling and discrediting mainstream in Kashmir.”

In a recent interview with BahuExpress, Mr. Subrahmanyam said that J-K was a “broken state” and there was “no system” in place, where “unbelievable levels of fraud” were committed by leaders of mainstream parties and pro-freedom organisations. He further claimed that this was the reason, not a “single soul had cried” over the detention of unionists and pro-freedom leaders in August last year.

Senior J-K People’s Conference leader Imran Raza Ansari lashed out at Mr. Subrahmanyam and said that he takes pride in dismantling and discrediting mainstream. He wrote on Twitter: “CS J&K – takes pride in dismantling, discrediting mainstream.” Mr. Ansari confirmed to the Kashmir Walla over a phone call that he was referring to the chief secretary of J-K in his tweets.

In his interview, Mr. Subrahmanyam was referring to political detentions that were made in August 2019 before New Delhi moved to strip the special status of J-K. However, most unionists were released gradually, one of the former chief ministers — Mehbooba Mufti — remains under detention. 

In another tweet, tagging Home Minister Amit Shah and the office of the prime minister, Mr. Ansari wrote: “So MR CS. Now u have been here for two years. And u have been the boss. Wonder how many people will cry if u r arrested. Hope u focus on ur job rather than dabbling in politics. Please for god’s sake do your job what you are best at Decide new date for meeting).”

People’s Democratic Party (PDP) also joined Mr. Ansari on the social media platform and commented on Mr. Subrahmanyam’s remarks that it is “sad state of affairs when a top bureaucrat no less than Chief Secretary  takes pride in dismantling & discrediting mainstream in #Kashmir and brags about @PMOIndia @narendramodi backing.”
