Owaisi said whether it was the Congress or the BJP at the Centre, they have â€˜no policy, no visionâ€™ to bring back normalcy in the Kashmir Valley. "I feel that there has to be a consistent policy on Kashmir which unfortunately is lacking," he said.
He was replying to a question during a panel discussion organised at the Telangana Jagruthi International Youth Leadership Conference which began on Saturday.
Quoting a report, Owaisi accused the BJP-led central government of not doing anything for Kashmiri Pandits. He said he has not seen so many lives being destroyed with pellet guns in the last eight years.
His remarks come a day after Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi raised the Kashmir issue during his meeting with the visiting UN General Assembly President Maria Fernanda Espionosa.
Qureshi said that he discussed the regional and international issues. including Kashmir with the UNGA chief and "apprised her of Pakistan's grave concern over the gross human rights violations" in Kashmir.
He called for implementing the UN Security Council's resolutions on Kashmir in letter and spirit to resolve this longstanding issue. Qureshi alleged that India was continuously violating the ceasefire agreement on the Line of Control (LoC) and urged the international community to help resolve the issue.
