  • Why this is an opportune moment for India to call for a plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir

    India should immediately hold a plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir.Call it a referendum or plebiscite, but India will win hands down. There will be very few takers for a merger with Pakistan or independence. As a result of Dulats presence at the event, the strategic community serving and retired senior RAW, IB and army officers was also in attendance.The chief guest of the evening was General Shankar Roychowdhury, retired chief of army staff. Without much ado, Lt Gen John Ranjan Mukherjee the GOC of Srinagar-based 15 Corps in Jammu and Kashmir until 2001 told the house that a plebiscite is the best solution for the festering problem because the will of the majority of people in Jammu and Kashmir is with India.Pakistan, according to him, is living in a world of fantasy as 80 to 90 percent of the population of the state stands staunchly behind India regardless of their gripes over the quality of governance for decades.After these stunning opening remarks, General Mukherjee provided a detailed community-wise break-up of the Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh regions in Indian-administered Kashmir and the southern and northern areas of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, to bolster his case for a plebiscite.In the Jammu region, 66 percent of the population is Hindu anyway.
