SKUAST-K Scientists & Teachers Association (SSTA) has strongly condemned the civilian killings in the Valley by the forces, and extended condolences to the bereaved families while praying for the speedy recovery of injured persons.
In a statement here today, the association said: "It is a matter deep concern that the Prime Minister of India did not express a word of sympathy with the families who lost their loved ones in the current unrest or who were injured and lost their eyesight."
"The current mass uprising is not a law and order or economic problem. The Kashmir issue needs a permanent political solution as per the wishes and aspirations of the people of state," it said.
The members urged various employee associations particularly EJAC to impress upon the State and the Central Governments to bring all stakeholders on table for restoring normalcy in the valley. "Afterwards a comprehensive dialogue can be started for an effective and peaceful and permanent resolution of Kashmir issue," it said.
As employees we are the part of the Kashmiri society and it is our moral duty to raise our voice against the inhuman acts.
