Srinagar: The MLA Kulgam and State Secretary CPI (M), Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami today called for an exclusive debate in the Legislative Assembly over the incidents of day-to-day killings going on in various parts of the State adding that ordering inquiries into these killings have lost its meaning.
Taking part in obituary references made in the Legislative Assembly on inaugural day of its seven-day long autumn session, Tarigami said people have lost trust and confidence on the whole system including administration and Legislature and are laughing on announcing enquiries on each and every killing incident.
He said people are feeling themselves helpless adding that if the prevailing tendency of helplessness and erosion of trust among the people is not addressed appropriately, it will be big causality and cause irreparable damage to the democratic values in the State.
The MLA Kulgam said that incidents of killings and bloodshed and meaningless inquiries on them since 2010, that have taken place in various parts of the State, has created a perception of deceit and lie among the people which has dented prestige of the democratic set up and have lowered integrity of the State Legislature. He said democracy demands that we should conduct our introspection and be accountable before the people for our responsibilities and deeds.
