LUCKNOW: Voicing concern over the killing of a journalist and forces’ personnel in Kashmir, BSP president Maywati on Friday asked the Narendra Modi government to shun its “stubborn attitude” and review its Kashmir policy.
The BSP supremo alleged the BJP’s Kashmir policy seems to be guided more by “narrow politics” of the party rather than being guided by the welfare of the people.
“I am extremely saddened by the death of Kashmiri journalist Shujaat Bukhari…Time has come for the Narendra Modi government to shun its stubborn attitude and immediately review its Kashmir policy in the interest of the country,” she said in a press release here.
Rising Kashmir editor Shujaat Bukhari was shot dead outside his office in Srinagar on Thursday along with two of his PSOs.
“Things are out of control despite the BJP and the PDP alliance at the helm in Jammu and Kashmir…the spate of killings is continuing both along the border as well as in the state…our security personnel are being martyred…people want peace and order…the central government needs to bring a change in its Kashmir policy keeping this fact in mind and speed up the pace of improvement also at the political level,” she stressed.
