Senior leader of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Sartaj Madni on Sunday said that situation in Kashmir is more dreadful than 90s.
Situation more dreadful than 90s in Kashmir: Madni.
Addressing a youth convention at Devsar Madni underscored the need for the greater efforts aimed at addressing the growing alienation among the youth of the state and said that if immediate measures aren’t taken to address the mounting anger and disgruntlement sauntering in every street at present, the situation could prove more troublesome and uncontrollable.
“The way in which the government is militating against the youth of the state, the situation has gone back to what was being witnessed prior to 2002 with nocturnal raids, arrests, tortures, constitutional frauds becoming order of the day,” Madni said.
He said that “the torture being inflicted upon the youth with a sole objective to push them towards the wall must stop without further delay and those at the helm should understand that such iron fist and trigger happy approaches have only proved counterproductive in the past.”
“Repeating the same old mistakes will prove calamitous. The only way out is to initiate meaningful dialogue with all stake holders and resolve Kashmir at an earliest to stop the vicious cycle of violence,” said Madni.
The convention was also addressed by the PDP’s Youth Wing President Waheed-ur-Rahman Parra who stressed for the greater synergized efforts to strengthen the PDP further and make it a strong force in Jammu and Kashmir’s political landscape. He added that channelizing the talent of youth of the state has always been PDP’s prime focus and that the party always remained in the forefront to address their concerns.
