Welcoming the initiative taken by Ministry of Home Affairs to ban Pellet in Kashmir, Congress today said that the Party has pressed for banning the Pellets during the meeting with Home Minister Yesterday, besides recently during the meeting with Prime Minister, the opposition had already demanded to ban on lethal Pellets, as it has inflicted heavy damages, but it should also be ensured that the alternative to pellets must not be lethal. While expressing satisfaction over the initiative taken by the Home Ministry to ban the use of Pellet, JKPCC Chief G.A. Mir has said that it will be a good on the Part of Home Ministry to effect the ban, at the earliest, besides the Ministry should ensure that the alternative will not be lethal than the Pellets.PCC Chief also welcomed the comments of Home Minister about the All Parties Delegation visiting Kashmir.
All though it is little late, but of course a welcome step. He said Congress Party, time and again, and in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha had urged the Centre Govt to send an all parties delegation to Kashmir which will hold discussion with all shades of opinion.Commenting on the current valley unrest, PCC Chief said it is the outcome of backstabbing and betrayal with the people by PDP in valley, the agenda of alliance between PDP and BJP in which both the Parties had promised enough, but could not even make a single promise. The contradiction in the approach of both parties towards the issues they had agreed to resolve at the time of formation of the Govt has exposed their dual standards, as a result, the valley is seething in anger, while having suffered heavy damages in every respect.
