On being asked if the Kashmir is plagued by terrorism and extremism because of the Congress, he said, "Terrorism and extremism are supported by Pakistan and ISI which is a known truth, but in 1987, when the local elections were rigged on behalf of Congress party and with the help of Farooq Abdullah, the unrest had turned into violence which was exploited by a Pakistan and ISI."
