It’s the best of times for the RSS and its votaries within the ruling BJP, as they indulge in a bout of back-patting. Reason: they have rejected outright the autonomy proposal passed by Jammu and Kashmir’s National Conference-led state assembly. And in so doing, not only has their government at the Centre put paid to Kashmiri aspirations, but has also sent the "right signals" to other states which clamour for autonomy-the Centre will not tolerate such demands beyond a point. Effectively, the BJP has exhibited its reluctance to take up the larger issue of re-negotiating India’s federal structure.
