Meanwhile, a BJP MLA on Monday alleged that the Congress government in Chhattisgarh doesn’t want people to watch ‘The Kashmir Files’ movie and threatening cinema halls to not sell all tickets to restrict footfalls, a charge rejected by the ruling party as baseless. Earlier, the Kerala unit of the Congress blamed the BJP-supported VP Singh government in the 1990s and also then governor Jagmohan for the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley. Retorting to the Congress, BJP leaders said the opposition party lacks sensitivity and for minority appeasement it sympathises with only one community.
