State, Central Govts fail to tackle present situation in Valley: Congress

JAMMU, FEB 16: JKPCC Chief Spokesperson, Ravinder Sharma has expressed grave concern over worsening situation in Kashmir valley and squarely blamed policies and approach of the State and Central Governments to deal with the situation.
Reacting to overall situation, especially in wake of today’s incident of stone-pelting on security forces during anti-militancy operation in Baramulla, Sharma said that it is highly condemnable and worrisome situation. It is result of failure of the State and Centre Governments to deal aptly with the situation, he added.
Sharma further said, “The militancy was brought under control to a great extent by the forces with active support and co-operation of people who used to pass-on valuable and reliable information to forces. But now, even after the Government’s CBMs and withdrawal of cases against more than 9700 stone-pelters, the situation has deteriorated. Both State and Centre Governments are squarely responsible for the same and owe a reply to people of the State.”
“Union Government is trumping its chest on success and sacrifices of security forces but the policies of Central and State Government proved to be utter failure to control the prevailing situation in the State, especially in valley. It is a matter of grave concern and urgent measures are required to be taken in this regard, failing which it would become difficult to handle the situation,” he maintained.
