CM’s Statement on Militancy a Cruel Joke: PPP

Srinagar, June 13: Chairman People’s Political Party (PPP), Er. Hilal War,  has termed the recent statement of Omar Abdullah expressing his over educated youth taking to arms as a “cruel joke” and called for “honest” introspection over this serious issue.

“Gun is not daily food for Kashmiris but a bitter medicine towards the treatment of the  disease,” said War adding, “Once the honest and sincere steps are taken towards the resolution of Kashmir tangle, the gun will automatically disappear from the scene.”  

He said Omar Abdullah should have stepped down soon after he had witnessed killing of a number of youth in 2010 unrest in police action “but he instead presided over a large scale massacre and chained and caged the freedom of expression of thousands with brute suppression so as to curb their democratic struggle for right to self determination.”

War termed the CM’s statement a “mere vote bank tactics” and called for Government of India to heed to the people’s struggle for right to self determination before it is too late. 

“The way reign of terror has been unleashed upon the people especially on the large majority of youth could result in turning Kashmir into a mini Afghanistan, the onus of which would fall entirely on callous attitude of the Government of India, said the PPP Chairman. 

He said Omar Abdullah should introspect “and if he has conscience, he should kick the chair and work towards the resolution of Kashmir as per the wishes and aspirations of the people”.
