"It was the Congress government which imposed the Act taking into account the growing militancy in the Valley and Chidambaram was very much there, holding pivotal position in the central government," he told PTI here. The Minister of State for Parliamentary and Minority Affairs alleged that the Kashmir Valley became a "safe haven for anti-India forces supported by Pakistan" during the Congress rule. "Do we need to remind a former minister, deemed as an extremely intelligent leader, that during Congress rule when Pakistan-based intruders attacked Kashmir and occupied a portion of former Maharaja's state, it was the then government which handed over the dispute to UN and accepted plebiscite. "You create the problem and when your successors take measures to find out the solution, you demand modifications just to avail political benefits," he claimed. Chidambaram had recently termed AFSPA as an "obnoxious law", and said it had no place in a modern and civilised country. The BJP leader also hit out Security measures intensified at senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid asking him to observe the performance of the Narendra Modi Government with open heart, open mind and open eyes instead of giving a year's time for assessment. "There is too much to observe and assess including Jan Dhan Yojna, cleanliness scheme, market determined diesel prices free from administrative control, launching of war against black money and corruption, among others." Khurshid had yesterday said that it was too early to review the shortcomings of the Modi government and it should be given at least six months to a year's time to perform.

The apex court had expanded the scope of the PIL which was filed in 2011 against an NGO, Hind Swaraj Trust, run by anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare. Earlier, the agency had expressed difficulty in probing and collecting information on NGOs and had pleaded that the task be handed over to states, but the plea was summarily rejected by the court which directed the agency to comply with its order. "If CBI can probe murder cases then why not probe against NGOs? You can do so many things, you do it also," the bench had said.
