Centre, State equally responsible for Gool killings: PDP
‘Magisterial inquiry mere eyewash to shield killers’
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, July 19: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Friday blamed both the centre and the state governments for the “gruesome killing” of four innocent persons in unprovoked firing in Gool area of Ramban district.
PDP leaders of Jammu region in a joint statement regretted that instead of taking action against those responsible for murdering innocent civilians, both the Centre and State Government were trying to pass the buck on such tragedies.
The leaders cautioned that such apathetic attitude of the Centre and the State Government would prove disastrous for the State and it would increase alienation among masses. They termed the magisterial inquiry ordered by the state government as mere eye-wash to shield those who were responsible for this massacre.
Questioning intention of the State Government to properly investigate the incident and to single-out the real culprits, they said announcing magisterial inquiry after every such tragic incident has become a routine matter. “More than 120 innocent youth were killed in 2010 summer unrest but not even a single person has been booked so far for these killings”, they said and regretted that during the last nearly five years the present regime has developed a culture to shield those who were responsible for committing atrocities on innocent civilians.
PDP leaders said that failure of the State Government to protect lives of innocent people has badly shattered faith of the common masses. They regretted that the process of peace and reconciliation which was started during the regime of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed has been reversed by the present dispensation through its misdeeds and failures.
The statement has been issued by Rangil Singh, T S Bajwa, Balbir Singh, Fallail Singh, Rashid Malik, Surinder Choudhary, Hussain Ali Bafa, Jagjeet Singh Jagga, R K Bali, Satpal Charak, Amreek Singh Reen, Sukhvinder Singh, Surjeet Kour, Susheela Jamwal, Som Nath Dogra, Chatter Singh Saini, Bhushan Lal Dogra, Baldev Singh Pappa, Varinder Singh Sonu, Daljit Singh Dicky, Bikram Singh, Rafiq Malik, Puneet Jamwal, Chaman Angral, Anju Bhan, Badri Nath and others.
