Concerned Citizens, comprising Yashwant Sinha, Wajahat Habibullah, Kapil Kak, Bharat Bhushan and Sushobha Bharve on Monday expressed concern over escalation of violence in Kashmir.
In a statement here they said, “We are deeply pained at the recent escalation of violence in Kashmir and at the loss of innocent civilians’ lives.”“The local body elections could have been planned with sensitive political forethought and as part of a consultative process for more inclusive and extensive participation,” they added.
“The issue of J&K is so sensitive that it is a sin to use it for petty political gains. The situation is deteriorating by the day in that state and the GoI remains unconcerned. This policy will only lead to disaster,” they said.
