New Delhi: Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar waded into fresh controversy on Monday as he compared the situation in J&K to Palestine even as party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra upped the ante by wishing Id to Kashmiris who she said were under “massive restrictions and troubles”.

Mr Aiyar, who is not new to political controversies said, “Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have just created a Palestine on our northern border. To do so, they first floated the rumour of an imminent massive terror attack on the Valley to induct around 35,000 additional armed personnel into a region already bristling with lakhs of jawans. They then forcibly evacuated tens of thousands of Amarnath yatris and tourists from Kashmir”.
