Kamaal: Agencies Misinforming HM

SRINAGAR: Accusing the Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde of being ignorant of facts and reality on ground, National Conference (NC) Additional General Secretary Dr. Mustafa Kamaal today said that he failed to understand what Delhi meant by the term “peace”.

“What kind of bird is it that Delhi would term as ‘peace’”, Kamal said while reacting to the home minister’s statement where he had laid complete peace and normalcy as a precondition for revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). 

“Shinde seems to be unaware of the ground reality of the State. Central agencies which work here are not giving complete information to centre and this is the reason why Shinde thinks peace has not returned to Kashmir”, said Kamal while talking to media persons at the sidelines of a Pachayat Raj function at Nawai Subh complex on Wednesday.

Shinde recently said that the Armed Forces Powers Special Act (AFSPA) would not be withdrawn from Jammu and Kashmir until the situation in the state was completely peaceful.

“13 lac tourists from across the country and world visited the state this year, lacs performed Amarnath Yatra and lacs visited Mata Vaishno Devi, if it is not peace what else is it that Delhi calls peace?” questioned Kamaal.

“Name the bird which State Government should show to Shinde to make him believe that peace prevails in Valley”, said Kamaal. 

NC Additional Secretary said that time is ripe to revoke the controversial AFSPA from the State. “AFSPA is the biggest hurdle in establishing peace and is cause of various troubles to the common people. Time is ripe to draw it out from the State”, said Kamaal.

Speaking about the coalition government, he said, “Coalition is for remaining in power and it is not a political alliance. Both NC and Congress have different political perspectives and NC is representing the sentiments of the people of State”, said Kaamal. (KNS)
