- Says GoI’s wrong policies responsible for killings
SRINAGAR: While strongly condemning the killing of five civilians and injury to dozens others at Laroo, Kulgam, Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Vice President Ghulam Nabi Monga today said Government of India’s wrong policies towards Kashmir are responsible for such killings.
In a statement issued to press here, he said, it is painful to see innocent civilians being killed in Kashmir in such a manner. “Every day innocent civilians are being killed in Kashmir which must be a cause for concern for every right thinking person in the country. Two days back, a pregnant lady was killed in Pulwama district in similar circumstances. It is the arrogance of BJP Government at the Center which is the root cause for such killings,” Monga said.
“This BJP Government’s policy revolves around the use of bullets only. There can be no condemnation strong enough to condemn such a killing,” he said while expressing solidarity with the victim families. The Congress leader expressed serious concern over the prevailing situation in Kashmir and said the initiatives taken in Kashmir during the United Progressive Alliance’s 10-year rule have been reversed and washed away by the incumbent Government.
“In 2010 when UPA Government was ruling at the Center, it took several initiatives to calm down the situation in Kashmir. Then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and AICC president Rahul Gandhi were always concerned about the Kashmir situation. However, present Government is least bothered about Kashmir situation,” he added.
