Geelani pays tributes to those killed in Kithtwar mishap
Srinagar, September 15, 2018: All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani has expressed his deep condolence with the families of all those 17 persons killed in bloody accident met at Thukaie, Kishtwar, highway, yesterday. Hurriyat leader also consoled the injured people in the same accident.
Praying for their heavenly abode and bestowal of forbearance to their near and dear ones, the Hurriyat leader, in a statement issued today expressed his anguish on the criminal negligence committed by the authorities for the disproportionate development of Kishtwar, Doda and the whole Chenab valley.
Hurriyat Chairman condemned the discrimination adopted by the authorities, towards the Chenab region on the ground, that the said area might not have any military significance, so the highway running through this mountainous region has been left in the lurch to become open graves for the passengers of this area.
“Statistics regarding the accidents swallowing passengers on these dilapidated roads and highways present a dismal picture as compared to other militarily important roads running through the sky high mountains,” said Geelani in the statement.
