Opposition political parties mulling to visit Valley

Srinagar: Amid the Center government’s silence on the continuing civilian killings and injuries by forces, the opposition parties in Center are mulling to send a delegation to the Valley where situation continues to be tense from the last nearly one month.
“We have held deliberation with different opposition parties in the country to send a delegation to Kashmir to assess the prevailing unrest. Talks are going on and a final decision might come out on Monday,” one of the opposition leaders told KNS. Major parties like Congress, left parties, including CPI (M), Janata Dal (U) are discussing about sending the delegation to Kashmir.
Among the leaders who have discussed about the delegation are Congress Opposition leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, AICC General Secretary Ambika Soni, CPI (M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, Sharad Yadav of Janata Dal (U), K C Tyagi of Janata Dal and D Raja from CPI.
The move of the opposition parties comes at a time when the Kashmir Valley is up in protests against the ongoing civilian killings and demands for resolution of the Kashmir dispute. The leader said that the Government of India is showing an indifferent attitude towards the situation in Kashmir.
“People in Kashmir are getting more disillusioned with New Delhi because of the absence of any approach that BJP-led government is showing towards Kashmir,” he said.
“Now, it becomes more important for us as Opposition to send a delegation to Kashmir. We had approached the Government but they seem not serious about it. But we are very serious,” the leader added.
