Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday said that instead of displaying political might, Prime Minister Narendra Modi should reach out to the people of Jammu and Kashmir with tangible confidence building measures for providing a healing touch to their sufferings.
“Instead of creating an impression that BJP is trying to conquer Jammu and Kashmir through political might, Modi should reach out to the people of the State with tangible confidence building measures to provide a healing touch to their sufferings,” PDP’s Lok Sabha member Tariq Hamid Karra said.
Addressing a series of election meetings in Batmaloo constituency of Srinagar, Karra alleged, “BJP and RSS are not only polarizing people on communal and ethnic lines, but an impression is fast gaining ground in Kashmir that the Saffron brigade is trying to conquer the State using political might and timeserving proxies.”
He alleged that BJP’s affronting show of might in Kashmir is loaded with “dangerous” consequences and it could fuel fresh wave of alienation and distrust among the people, especially the youth.
“The political subversion and uncertainty that the state has faced in the last seven decades has already taken a heavy toll on its polity, economy and human resource and it can ill afford any further disruption,” Karra said.
