Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) vice president and MLC G N Monga today questioned the silence maintained by the Government of India over prevailing situation in the Valley.“At a time when integral part of the country is going through most difficult time, the silence maintained by the BJP led Centre government is unfortunate. What is stopping Narendra Modi led government from defusing the situation in Kashmir is questionable?” Monga said in a statement to KNS.He said that it seems from the last one and half months, the Central government has no interest over the happenings in Kashmir. “Even at the beginning of the unrest, it was efforts of Congress Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad sahib that the Center government sent an All Party delegation to Kashmir. But since then there has been no headway which is unfortunate,” he rued.
Lashing out at Centre for adopting negligent attitude about the current turmoil prevailing in the Valley, the Congress leader said that people in Kashmir were suffering immensely for the last almost 100-days due to continuous strike, curfew and violence. “Every sphere of life has been badly hit by the unrest. While education sector has been the worst victim, the transporters, businessmen, people associated with tourism and other sectors are in deep crisis,” he said.“At a place where more than 90 people have been killed, thousands others injured, hundreds blinded or maimed for life, hundreds booked under PSA, the lack of concern on the part of Centre to put an end to current unrest is unfortunate. No serious efforts were being made by the government to put an end to the unrest,” Monga added.Appealing people of the State to maintain communal harmony and age old tradition of unity and brotherhood, JKPCC vice president said that people of the State have always respected emotions of one another and this time too, they should continue to remain united thereby not getting swayed by the elements vitiating peace and communal harmony to serve their vested interests.
