Srinagar: Terming the large scale arrests across the valley ahead of Prime Ministers visit as unjustified, Senior CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam Mohmmmad Yousuf Tarigami has said that the government is misusing the official machinery for PMs rally.
Arrests have been made indiscriminately and most of the police stations have caged the youth creating a sense of fear among the people. He urged the government to stop harassing the people.
Prime Ministers visit is being given undue hype, as funding and allocations for any state in a federal structure is mandatory, he said and castigated the Centre for delaying relief to the flood affected people of the State.
Government machinery, from top to bottom, is being mobilized for Prime Ministers rally and PDP-BJP leadership is trying to give an impression that the Central Govt is bestowing huge favours to Jammu and Kashmir State.
Criticizing Mufti for repeatedly praising Modi and the RSS as being tolerant and inclusive, Tarigami said that before eulogizing them he should introspect the ground realities in the State and the rest of the country which are exclusively contrary to his claims.
