Can’t all of us have some common ground to give respite to people: Tarigami
Addresses workers convention at Qazigund
Qazigund, March 17: CPI(M) leader, M Y Tarigami today said that highest level of violence in a decade, lowest economic activity and unending political uncertainty in Kashmir today is the outcome of the BJP government’s wrong policies due to which there is gloom everywhere in the Valley.
Addressing a workers convention at Qazigund, Tarigami said that Kashmir is in constant chaos and the new realities are being sketched under the shadow of guns and the BJP’s aggressive, muscular Kashmir policy.
“There is a trail of disappointment, let-downs and downright lies and broken promises by the BJP government. The BJP’s toxic agenda is reflected in the beatings of Kashmiri students, businessmen and employees across the country after last month’s barbaric terror attack in Pulwama. When the government acted as a mute spectator, the Supreme Court had to intervene,” he said.
More than three year of BJP-PDP alliance, which ended last year in June, has left the state in a quagmire of violence, polarisation and crisis. The words and deeds of BJP and PDP leaders don’t match as they claimed so much when they entered into an alliance and ultimately left the state in perils, he said.
“Can’t all of us (mainstreams and separatists) have dialogue on some fundamental issues if the government of India isn’t willing to hold dialogue? Why have we become mere spectators to the miseries of common people? By issuing mere statements on every issue, we can’t absolve ourselves from our responsibilities. Can’t all of us in Jammu and Kashmir, including voices of dissent, have some common approach to give some respite to the people of the state,” he said.
