JAMMU: Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Mir Saifullah has said that the State Government has already requested the Union Government for handing over the mortal remains of late Afzal Guru, so that his family could perform his last rites.
The Minister was speaking at a Press Conference here today.
Mr. Saifullah said that the present Government has tackled the situation in a very efficient manner in the aftermath of Afzal Gurus hanging. He said instead of appreciating the Government for tackling the situation carefully, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was busy in blame game.
The Minister said that PDP is misleading the people over the death of Afzal Guru and playing merely a drama in media. He said that the PDP leader in the house who was stressing on holding discussion on the return of mortal remains of Guru did not make a mention of this during the discussion on the adjournment motion today.
Mir Saifullah suggested the PDP not to play politics at the cost of peoples lives, adding that they should collectively work for the welfare of the people.
The Minister said that the people of the State are knowledgeable enough to differentiate between right and wrong and identify the ones who are trying to mislead them and disturb the peaceful environs of the state.
