Why has Kashmir situation turned volatile, Farooq asks Govt

Early Times Report

Jammu, Oct 21: National Conference president and former J&K chief minister Dr Farooq Abdullah on Thursday asked the government to explain why the situation in Kashmir has turned volatile.
Addressing a party convention here, he said, “We were told that the revocation of Articles 370 and 35-A would bring peace and usher a new era of development. I want to ask the helmsmen where is the peace and what happened to development. They have to answer these questions as the people of Kashmir were shown many dreams.”
He exuded hope that his party will return to power and would seek answers from the people “who have messed up J&K.” “Farooq Abdullah is coming back, be ready,” he added.
Condemning the recent civilian killings in the Valley, Dr Farooq said, “Even the Almighty won’t forgive the killers as their hands are smeared with the blood of innocents.”
“Atmosphere of communal divide and generating passions is not a conducive trend in politics,” Dr Farooq said.
He said that ‘hate’ is being spread here as well by those who just chant ‘Jammu, Jammu, Jammu, Jammu’.
“Jammu and Kashmir will remain a singular entity. Jammu is the gateway to Kashmir and valley as a gateway to Ladakh. Attempts of sowing hate in Jammu have been made since 1947 but the perpetrators will not succeed. Those trying to generate a wedge will lead to balkanization of the country,” he added.
He said if the ray of secularism from J&K generated a ray of hope during horrendous times decades ago there is no reason why today's challenges can't be met now. He exhorted the cadre to renew their pledge of strengthening cherished philosophy of secularism that guided the destiny of the people in this part of the country under the banner of National Conference over the decades.
Referring to soaring prices of essentials and the fuel, Dr Farooq reminded the Prime Minister of his tirade against fuel prices when they were in the opposition. Now that the prices are touching skies, nothing is being done, as a result of which poor people stand pushed to the wall. He said the hike in fuel prices has escalated rates of all the essentials and the brunt is being borne by the poor.
He once again reiterated that people of Jammu and Kashmir cannot be subdued by the strong-armed measures, a generous reach-out to the people is the only way out to address their concerns. “The projected Naya Jammu and Kashmir has proved to be a doomsday scenario for the people living on either side of Chenab and Pir Panjal ranges,” he said, adding that “There has been a systematic disempowerment of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, particularly its youth”.
