Blaming ruling dispensation of PDP BJP for failing to restore confidence and ensuring safety and security of the people, Congress today described the braid chopping and harassment of the people on the part of some anti peace and anti-social elements as very disturbing and serious matter, saying that this is highly unfortunate and Govt has failed to ascertain the identity of the culprits leading to the deep alienation among the masses.
Lodging a strongly protest against what it called the failure of the Govt on all counts, the Congress, as part of its week long awareness campaign, held a meeting of Senior Party Leaders and Workers at Kahanbal in Anantnag today and protested against harassment of the people especially braid chopping, which the party believes is being carried to disturb the peace and tranquility in the valley.The meeting was presided over by Former PCC President Peerzada Mohd Syed, in which Former Minister and Senior Leader Taj Mohi U Din, MLA Mohd Amin Bhat, MLA Gulzar Ahmad Wani participated and lashed out at ruling dispensation for inaction and inability to unravel the mystery behind braid chopping.
Addressing the meeting Peerzada Mohd.Syed said that this is highly unfortunate that untoward incidents like braid chopping, which was never expected in this state is happening now and irony that despite having all resources and facilities available, Govt has not been able to ascertain the identity of the culprits, besides that it has also miserably failed to unknot the mystery behind these shameful acts, which is an attack on the modesty of the women.
Expressing concern over the fear psychosis created due to braid chopping among the people, Peerzada said that it was compulsory on the part of Govt to take very serious and effective measures to restore confidence of the people, but this highly condemnable that not even a single culprit was identified, so far, which is indicative of utter failure of the PDP BJP ruling dispensation on all counts.Addressing the gathering Taj Mohi U Din expressed serious concern over the failure of the Govt to ensure safety of people saying that Govt must come clean on braid chopping and apprise people on this issue, for the fact, braid chopping has added chaos to the people, which the Govt should address and find out who is doing it and why? He said people have lost faith in the present regime, as a result they do not feel secure, as they understand fully that the inaction on the part of Govt on this issue amounts to an encouragement of culprits, so it is high time for the Govt to identity the culprits for server punishment and restore confidence among the people.
Speaking on the occasion Legislators Mohd Amin Bhat & Gulzar Ahmad Wani urged upon the people to remain vigilant and defeat the designs of anti-social elements hell bent upon to create confusion in the society under the garb of braid chopping. Those who addressed the meeting included Vice President JKPCC Mohd Anwar Bhat, General Secretary Hilal Ahmad Shah,Abdul Qayoom Shah, Mohd Iqbal Mir, Farooq Ahmad Bhat, Ali Mohd Mantoo, Ab. Rashid Lone, Gulam Mohd Mir, Gh. Mohi U Din Bhat, Mohd Iqbal Khan and others. Later Congress Leader submitted a Memorandum to His Excellency the Governor Shri N.N.Vora through Deputy Commissioner Anantnag seeking action against culprits involved in braid chopping. The Memorandum also reads that Govt has miserably failed to restore confidence of the people and urged that effective measures must be put in place to identity the persons involved in braid cutting.
