According to Prof K Nageshwar, the Central government can put an end to the Jammu & Kashmir issue by holding dialogue with stakeholders. He explained Jammu & Kashmir was peaceful in the 1950s and 60s. Nageshwar stated terrorism intensified from the 1970s after successive Central governments interfered in the autonomy of Jammu & Kashmir. He found fault with the policies of past and present Central government for diluting the Article 370 and started treating Jammu & Kashmir just like other states. However, he made it clear that the army should give strong reply for those who want to free Jammu & Kashmir from India.
