The opposition party legislators on Tuesday attacked the JK government and said there was an immediate need to start the dialogue process to resolve the Kashmir issue instead of taking credits for development “executed by the previous regime”.

Speaking in the Lower House, Senior CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam, 

M Y Tarigami expressed need to initiate credible dialogue with all “stakeholders” and said, “Delhi should stop jingoism and come clear on holding a dialogue”.

“Jammu and Kashmir State has a unique situation in the whole sub-continent. It seems the government has some pressure from the external powers,” he said.

Stating that Kashmir was a political issue and was accepted by Attal Bihari Vajpayee and LK Advani, Tarigami said the Prime Minister has acknowledged it on numerous occasions.

“Dialogue is globally considered a best way to fight terrorism and by initiating a dialogue, government will regain respect from people,” he added.

Tarigami reiterated that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti should pass a resolution from the House and ask the Government of India to initiate the dialogue process with all stake holders to resolve Kashmir issue.

“When Mehbooba Ji was in opposition, she would advocate for dialogue and constitution of Truth and Reconciliation Commission. We don’t demand that. We are only seeking a judicial probe into 2016 Kashmir killings by a sitting Supreme Court judge,” he said.

He said the commission would bring accountability in the system and can win trust of the people. “A judicial commission will probe what exactly happened. Whether there was a need to shower pellets and bullets on youth, it will be also clarified,” he said.

Tarigami said they were not against the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country.

Referring to Kathua issue Tarigami said it was not a Hindu Muslim issue but “about the rights of tribals”.

“This is an issue of law passed by Parliament not issue about Muslims and Hindus,” he said.

Meanwhile senior Congress leader, Nawang Rigzin Jora while speaking during motion of thanks on Governors address castigated the present regime for taking credits of development projects executed by their government in past.

“Every development project was started by our government and you are taking the credit,” he said and lambasted the present government saying that NDA government was not capable of initiating a dialogue with Pakistan. “Foreign policy can’t be run on personal whims. You can’t fool people all the time,” he said.

Speaking about the implementation of Agenda of Alliance of the government he said, “Both the parties have surrendered all issues to each other for the sake of chair.”

Expressing his displeasure with the government he said, the people of Ladakh who have achieved feat were ignored by the government saying that the CM Mehbooba failed to compliment and acknowledge the achievement of two Ladkahi girls who climbed Mount Everest.

“Everest summit is more valuable than Olympic gold. But I am shocked that Chief Minister failed to acknowledge the two girls who climbed Mount Everest. I informed her but there was no word from her.”

He also questioned the government for not taking action against the doctor who has allegedly molested a Ladakhi student. “He is a serial molester why action is not being taken against him,” Jora alleged.
