Srinagar: The National conference Thursday expressed concern over the deteriorating security situation in the valley particularly in south Kashmir and said the primary objective of the government must be the restoration of a sense of safety and dignity in the people.
“The party general secretary – Ali Sagar addressing a delegation from Redwani Kulgam at NC headquarters, said restoring safety among people will send a message of reconciliation across the length and breadth particularly in south Kashmir,” according to the statement.
The delegation led by district president Kulgam – Abdul Majeed Bhat (Larmi) apprised him the increased number of army installations in the Redvani area of Kulgam district.
“CASOs and night crackdowns have already put the people to constraints and that any further military built up will push them to the wall,” Larmi said.
Sagar addressing the delegation said that the party would raise the woes of the people at an appropriate forum.
“Omar Abdullah led government had employed a conciliatory approach while dealing with militancy and that the foot prints of the armed installations were decreased at many places including Srinagar,” Sagar said adding: “However when PDP led government assumed power all those measures took a back seat and the state went into an abyss of chaos and violence since then. It’s therefore very necessary to make amends now and bring some semblance of peace in the state.”
The NC general secretary implored the state government and the government of India to show maximum restraint in dealing with the people especially youth.
