Senior CPI(M) leader and MLA Kulgam M Y Tarigami today questioned the “silence” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on deepening Kashmir situation.
Calling upon all the democratic forces in the country to raise their voice against the “oppression”, Tarigami said the Prime Minister continuous silence conveys his ignorance or arrogance,” he said in a statement.
The CPI (M) leader added that opposition forces in the Parliament must speak louder and make this government “accountable” and make Prime Minister to break his “silence”.
“The fresh killings in Kashmir and the administrative response to it speaks volumes of inhuman and irresponsible attitude of the administration towards the rising wave of protests in the valley,” he said while calling for a dialogue with all the stake holders for political settlement of Kashmir.
“Let it be noted that there is simply one solution to this festering wound that is political settlement acceptable to all the contenders and for that a meaningful institutionalised dialogue process with all stake holders must be initiated,” he said.
Three persons were killed and scores of others injured in fresh wave of violence in the valley on Friday, taking the death toll in the ongoing unrest to 54. The protests broke out a day after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security.
