Questioning the Kashmir Policy of Central Govt, Congress today sought clarity from the Govt over the continuous deteriorating situation in the entire Valley and blamed both State and Centre Govt for failing to handle the situations. The Party also blamed the Govt for not showing any seriousness about the Kashmir situation and wellbeing of the people.Lashing out at Central Govt for failing to contain the boiling situation in Kashmir, JKPCC Chief G.A.Mir has said that mishandling of the situation and the wrong policies of Central Govt has disturbed the socio political scenario of the State, especially in Valley, as a result there seems to be no sign of improvement on the ground and the situation continue to remain on boil. Centre Govt must adopt pro people policies, as that will only infuse a sense of security among the people, he said.PCC Chief said that even the All Party’s meet convened sometime ago could decrease the tensions, for the fact, the suggestions put forth and important points relating to safety and security of everyone “raised in the meet” by the opposition were not implemented. One fails to understand what the Central Govt and State Govt were doing to normalize the situation.
Had there been a proper mechanism to deal with protests, the situation would have been better and under control, he said.PCC Chief also questioned the silence being maintained by the Prime Minister on Kashmir situation, he said PM doesn’t seem to be serious about the State. Central Govt must change its attitude towards the J&K State and take early effective measures to address the concerns of people and other problems, he added.Criticizing the Prime Minister for not showing any interest about the wellbeing of J&K State, PCC Chief said that Prime Minister should stop looking J&K through a different prism and open his heart for the people of State. It is obligatory on the part of Narinder Modi as Prime Minister to think seriously about the wellbeing, safety, security and development of everyone living in J&K State.This is unfortunate that the situation remains as it was earlier and the common people continue to suffer on every front, the failure of the Central Govt to normalize the situation was the root cause of the present turmoil, besides the Home Minister’s visit to valley proved a complete failure. Centre Govt was supposed to send an All Party Delegation to valley inorder to assess the situation, but it was astonishing that Home Minister visited the valley without doing any proper ground work, which is indicative of the arrogance of Centre Govt. G.A. Mir added.He also expressed serious concern over the increase in number of causalities and injuries and strongly urged upon the authorities to take effective safety measures while dealing with the situation and ensure that no more causalities or injuries happen.
