Hurriyat (M) rejects Delhi’s 8-point package
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Sept 27: The Hurriyat (M) on Monday rejected New Delhi’s 8-point package on Kashmir and reiterated that the longstanding dispute could only be resolved if aspirations of Kashmiris are addressed.
In a statement a Hurriyat spokesman said the conglomerate’s Executive Council could not meet today to discuss the package due to continuous house arrest of Mirwaiz and strict curfew. He said a tele conference was later held between the executive members after which the conglomerate issued a statement.
The statement said Hurriyat Conference has time and again made it clear that it is only the resolution of the Kashmir issue and not any political or economic concessions that can bring lasting peace and stability in Kashmir as well as in the entire region.
“Despite the All Party Delegation’s visit to the valley and assessing seriousness of the situation for themselves, the announcements made reflect a lack of willingness to understand and address the basic issue, which is disappointing. It again show India's reluctance to address the political aspirations of the people of JK for which they have been agitating for the past six decades and making all kinds of sacrifices,” the statement said.
It said the conglomerate had given certain suggestions to New Delhi for the initiation of a process of meaningful engagement between the three concerned parties- people of Kashmir, India and Pakistan for the resolution of the Kashmir issue.
“These suggestions are imperative in order to provide relief to the people on ground and build an atmosphere of trust, free of coercion and intimidation. But to our dismay there has been no progress on that account. Instead, the measures that have been announced do not convey much promise- they are administrative in nature which seem to be put in place to provide relief to the beleaguered state government and deliberately shift focus from the actual issue to providing compensation and concessions to people,” it stated.
Meanwhile, the spokesman also strongly criticized the Government for continuously imposing curfew and other restrictions to what he said harass the people. He also condemned the continuous process of arrest of youth across the Valley.
