Srinagar: Opposition National Conference (NC), Friday asked the government to come clear whether the braid chopping incidents in Kashmir is ‘a game’, saying the remarks of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti are quite confusing.
NC General Secretary and MLA Khanyar, Ali Muhammad Sagar said that the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s statement, over the braid chopping incidents, is confusing.
“I fail to understand that if the Mehbooba Mufti is claiming that such incidents are an attempt to undermine the dignity of a woman then why her government fails to ensure the safety and security of the womenfolk,” he said.
Earlier Mehbooba Mufti had said that the braid chopping incidents are an attempt to create mass hysteria and undermine the women dignity in the state. She had also said that her government will also investigate the motives behind these incidents.
“The Chief Minister’s statement is totally confusing. Is braid chopping a game,” he questioned, adding that Mehbooba must come up with the facts behind these incidents.
“The people of Kashmir are worried due to the government’s failure in tracing the culprits behind these incidents. The protest by the locals is the outcome of administration’s failure,” he said, adding that if the locals are creating law and order situation that is the fault of administration as two months have passed but the government is still clueless in this regard.
“The CM claims to find out the motives behind these incidents are welcoming. But the words are not enough to control the situation. The statement should be implemented on the ground,” he said.
The MLA Khanyar further said that the government should investigate the matter thoroughly so that the people could heave a sigh of relief.
