JAMMU: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed serious concern over the indiscriminate arrest and other coercive measures resorted to by the government in an unsuccessful effort to quell protests in Kashmir.
PDP legislators met here under the leadership of party president and head of the Legislature Party leader Mehbooba Mufti today and condemned the mindless and directionless approach of the State Government.
PDP president said that the reign of terror has been unleashed on the people who are forced to live the life under constant siege.
She said that the forum of Assembly has unfortunately been undermined by the present dispensation headed by Omar Abdullah and voice of the people was muzzled in a brazen manner.
The legislators present in the meeting said that the people of Kashmir are being pushed into uncertainty by the callous and insensitive government, which they said thrives on this. They said that hundreds of people, young and old are picked up in different areas of Valley everyday including minors booked under fake cases.
The members said that 2010 is being repeated as killings, arrests, ransacking of private property by security forces and frequent curfew has become a routine. They said that suspension of mobile services, censorship of news and crackdowns resorted to presents a gruesome situation.
