On Wednesday 18th March, while debating in the Lok Sabha on supplementary demands for grants for 2019-20 for J&K, Congress MP Manish Tewari rebuked the government's decision to abrogate Article 370 and split Jammu and Kashmir into separate union territories. Criticising the Government's decisions on several restrictions imposed in the region and citing data of 'Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry', he said there was a loss of USD 2.4 billion and just the agriculture sector alone has lost Rs 10,000 crore, in last seven months.

He further urged the Government to listen to the voice of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

"There is no economic progress if there is no peace. The decisions of August 5th and 6th have disrupted social amity. Open your years and listen to the voice of Jammu and Kashmir. A serious situation is developing and the budget of Rs 1 lakh crore will not have an impact,” he said.
