Says, there’s a moral demand for head of govt to address situation in Manipur

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President and Member of the Parliament from Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Sunday expressed concern over death, destruction, and human rights violations in the deadly ethnic conflict raging in the Northeastern state of Manipur.

He said this while addressing a gathering in Srinagar. 

“Govt should spare tokenism and lip service to taking tangible peace-making steps to stop the violence in the troubled state. The situation calls for an objective assessment of the failure of the government in containing the situation from escalation. The government has simply collapsed, and its credibility lay in tatters. To call this a total failure of the government is unpalatable but it would not be inaccurate. Where else would a woman be assaulted in a brought daylight and the government would take no action against the culprits for months altogether? The evolving situation in Manipur is crying for redressal. While I demand an inclusive reach out from the Union Government to the varied sections of people in Manipur, I also demand a strict punishment to those involved in the barbaric incident against a woman,” he said.

Meanwhile, he visited the residence of party leader, district president Srinagar Peer Afaq Ahmed at Bot Shah Mohalla Lal Bazar and participated in Ijtemai Fateha Khawani of his revered mother.

Joined by party functionaries, Dr. Farooq Abdullah offered Fatiha for the deceased and prayed for peace to the departed soul in the highest echelons of the Jannat.

General Secretary Haji Ali Muhammad Sagar, Chief Spokesman Tanvir Sadiq, Senior Leaders Mubarak Gul, Sakina Itoo, Ali Mohammad Dar, Muhammad Saeed Akhoon, Ghulam Mohiuddin Mir, Khawaja Muhammad Yaqub Wani, Salman Ali Sagar, Ahsan Pardesi, Dr. Sajjad Shafi, Ghulam Hassan Rahi, Deputy Mayor Parvez Qadri, Advocate Hilal Lon, Farooq Ahmad Shah, Riaz Ahmad Bidar, Pirzada Feroze Shah, District Presidents, In-Charge Constituencies, Block presidents, DDC members, and councilors also offered condolences to Peer Afaq.
