Srinagar: Opposition National Conference (NC), Wednesday criticized the government for failing to tackle the braid chopping crisis in the state.
NC, senior leader Ali Mohammad Sagar while condemning the continuous spate of braid chopping incidents happening throughout the valley said that the promises of Chief Minister also failed to get to the issue.
“Present government seems to have completely lost the grip on how to tackle this crisis. Numerous cases of braid chopping are being reported from South Kashmir but not a single arrest has been made. Now such incidents have started to happen in Srinagar as well and still this government seems unmoved,” Sagar said.
“The mass hysteria has gripped the whole state and its really frustrating as to how government is not able to identify and arrest those responsible for the mayhem. They have men and machinery at their disposal but unfortunately government is still clueless,” he said.
“The honor of our daughters and mothers is supreme to us and that there should not be any compromise with it,” he added.
“PDP BJP government need to understand that the state is still grappling with the fallout of the previous year. The economic condition of our people is devastated to say the least. And if such situation continues where our women folk now fear to tread outside, then only God can save us,” he added.
He said that that the government should be proactive and immediately constitute a fact finding team who will ascertain all the facts behind the braid chopping incidents.
