Srinagar: CPI(M) leader and MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami has called for united efforts by all secular and likeminded forces to desist the designs of RSS and BJP to further erode Article 370 which has been rendered to a mere caricature.
The special status guaranteed under this article to J&K has been seized from time to time by the central regimes in convenience with rulers of the state and what less has been left is being further eroded, he said and warned about the serious repercussions of eroding Article 370.
Tarigami said that all regimes at the centre and in the state have by hook or crook infringed the constitutional and democratic rights of the people and by ignoring the public concerns and burning issues.
Referring to the New Industrial Policy and setting up of Sainik colonies, he said that present dispensation is trying to encouraging outsider investors and entrepreneurs to further aggravate the unemployment and letting the state resources to the outsiders for exploitation.
CPI (M) leaders Mohammad Yousf Lone, Mohd Afzal Parry and Ab. Majeed said that people are facing scarcity of essential commodities despite tall claims by the administration.
