A point by point rebuttal of how Congress did the same & maybe worse in Andhra bifurcation in 2014, but blames BJP for J&K bill now.
Congress has said it is criticizing the government not for bringing in Article 370, but for the manner in which it has been brought in.
Rahul and Sonia Gandhi then intervened and said that “the resolution would reflect the party’s unhappiness over the process followed by the BJP rather than its decision to remove the special status allowed to Kashmir by Article 370.”
Congress MPs from AP used pepper spray on their own colleagues in the Lok Sabha! Speaker and other MPs had to be carried out as they got sick!
So, since it is concerned about democratic processes now, let’s see some history. And let’s not go back to the usual Emergency, Indira Gandhi’s being dictatorial history. But let’s just see what happened 5 years ago, when Sonia and Rahul were very much in charge.
Andhra Pradesh reorganization act was passed in 2014 by Parliament to bifurcate AP into Andhra & Telangana.
1) Congress blames Modi government for not getting assembly approval for bifurcation of J&K.
Congress got the AP assembly to approve… err….Wait a minute!
Their own Congress govt in AP rejected the bill, asking the centre not to split the state! 
2) Congress says government ignores discussion in Parliament:
When Congress brought the bill in Lok Sabha, its own cabinet minister Chiranjeevi, brought the bill and said he is opposed to it! He OPPOSED his own cabinet’s bill in Lok Sabha.
3) Congress says Mehbooba, Omar and Farooq, former CM’s were not allowed to speak and were arrested:
Congress CM of AP, Kiran Kumar Reddy was on record opposing bifurcation of his state, brought forward by his own party!
4) Congress said no time to debate in Parliament, the government is pushing through:
Congress MPs from AP used pepper spray on their own colleagues in the Lok Sabha! Unwitnessed since its existence!
Speaker and other MPs had to be carried out as they got sick!
So next time Congressmen talk about democratic norms around the J&K bill, please ask them if it has to be done Andhra style or “Oppa Gangnam Style” !!
