Army deployment unwarranted: CPI(M)
GK NEWS NETWORK
New Delhi, July 8: The CPI(M) Thursday termed the government's decision to deploy Army in Srinagar as "unwarranted" and condemned the "indiscriminate" arrests of people in the valley. "The decision to use Army in the current situation is not in sync with the demands of the ground," CPI (M) state secretary M Y Tarigami said in a statement.
He also asked all political parties in the state not to indulge in blame-game and contribute to minimise people's sufferings.
Tarigami asked the Centre not to handle the situation "casually" and said "a bold political initiative, including a serious dialogue with all shades of political opinion in the state" was an absolute must.
"Government of India must come out of its deep slumber and realise that the discontentment among the youth of Kashmir needs to be reasonably analysed and addressed," he said.
Expressing serious concern over the prevailing situation in Kashmir, he said the Army's role in the situation was not only "unwarranted and uncalled for", but was "unproductive".
He also criticised the state government for "curbing" media coverage and demanded that media persons be allowed to freely discharge their duties.
He also expressed anguish over shortage of essential commodities in the curfew-bound and far flung areas of the valley, including scarcity of medicines and other supplies in the hospitals.
