NC legislator urges CM to speak up

Srinagar: National Conference (NC) MLA from south Kashmir Abdul Majeed Larmi has asked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to “break her silence” on the “martyrdom of 250 youth. He advised the CM to offer her apologies for the killings.
Speaking to the media on the sidelines of a function in his home constituency Homeshalibugh in Kulgam district he said that Chief Minister hasn’t spoken about the youth who were killed post-Burhan Wani encounter in 2016.
“Since the martyrdom of Burhan Wani over 250 youth have been martyred. Properties have been damaged, but Mehbooba ji hasn’t spoken on this,” Larmi told reporters.
He said that the way former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah apologized to the people after 2010 killings, Mehbooba Mufti should also talk about the people who were killed since the ‘martyrdom of Burhan Wani’.
He alleged that the chief minister was working on the directions from Nagpur, referring to RSS headquarters, “to save her chair”.
“Our sisters were martyred. And Mehbooba ji despite being a woman didn’t even talk about that. She should talk. The way Omar Abdullah apologized on the floor of the assembly,” Larmi said.
Earlier, in May this year, Larmi has questioned the Army’s claim about the killing of Lt Umar Fayaz in south Kashmir’s Shopian district.
“Nobody knows who killed Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz,” he had told reporters here in Srinagar.
Omar Abdullah had then distanced himself and his party from the statement and said that Larmi had no business making unsubstantiated claims.
“I neither endorse nor do I condone what the MLA Homshalibugh (Larmi) has said to a news channel. He had no business making unsubstantiated claims,” Omar Abdullah had said.
The police had blamed six Hizb and Lashkar militants involved in the killing of Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz on May 10 this year.
