A National Conference delegation Tuesday told the union home minister Rajnath Singh that solution to Kashmir problem can only be achieved through a process of dialogue and the “policy of looking at Kashmir issue through the prism of security will bring more misery to people.”
The NC delegation, led by its general secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, met Singh who was on a day-long visit to Kashmir and submitted a memorandum to him, here.
In a statement, a National Conference spokesman said the delegation “registered their anguish and concern over unending cycle of killings, particularly the recent killing of seven youth in Kulgam and other human rights violations in the state.”
It also apprised the home minister about the “sense of insecurity and disenchantment that looms large in wake of the aggressive approach adopted by the government of India,” the spokesman said.
The delegation, according to the spokesman, apprised the home minister about the “duress that people are subjected to due to excessive use of force, cordon-and-search operations, mass arrests, intermittent media and internet curbs, and rampant curfews.”
