Address vexed Kashmir issue: Tarigami
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 23: The Jammu and Kashmir unit of CPI (M) on Sunday urged India and Pakistan to reverse the “self-destructive” path and take bold initiatives to address the vexed Kashmir issue.
“New Delhi and Islamabad must make serious efforts to turn a new leaf in their relations. For this the leadership has to exhibit will and capacity to move forward”, state Secretary of the party Muhammad Yusuf Tarigami said addressing a public meeting at Ashmuji, 70 km from here.
He said “rigidities” must be replaced by “flexibilities” and both the countries should realise this.
Tarigami cautioned that the continued hostilities between the two countries will be dangerous for stability in the sub-continent.
“We must realise that alienation is not going to go by only holding elections," he said.
He said it was essential to establish the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in the state. “This will help victims know who the victimizer is and know who did what and to whom?” he said. “For this bold and courageous initiatives are required to be taken. Mere rhetoric won’t do. Besides, free and fair political processes, measures like extra-economic investment, jobs to the youth, rebuilding of social institutions are urgently required.”
He urged upon the both mainstream and separatist leadership to make serious efforts to identify the areas of agreement to move forward. “We may have differences of ideologies and political perspectives but we are duty-bound to shoulder the responsibility of finding out a credible mechanism for seeking solution to this vexed problem,” he said.
Welcoming the Prime Minister, Dr.Manmohan Singh’s visit to the state, Tarigami hoped it would be more purposeful. “People of J&K have the right to know the fate of the recommendations of the Working Groups and Prime Minister must take the people into confidence about the measures taken to implement these recommendations”, he said.
