While speaking on the ban of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik, Congress leader PC Chacko said, "Probably this government encouraged all these mini terrorist groups. Yasin Malik and all these people were given special treatment by this government. What was Home Ministry under Rajnath Singh doing for so long?" He further added, "When action needed to be taken, no action was taken. And, now when it is too late, they're pretending to take action."
