Chairman Peoples Democratic Front and MLA Khansahib Hakeem Muhammad Yasin Saturday asked government not to pave way for another unrest by announcing "controversial decisions."
Yasin while participating on the discussion on grants of Home Department in legislative assembly said that "government must refrain from making controversial statements and announcements that would lead to another unrest in the state."
"Your different ministers are making different statements on the same issue. First you (Government) deny having any proposal for making any Sainik or Pandit colonies. Now, you are your ministers make announcement that land for the establishment of colonies has been identified," he said.
"You create confusion and are not clear what you want to say. But let me make it clear that government must not make or support any controversial decisions which would pave way for another unrest in Kashmir," he added.
He said that people in Kashmir are eagerly waiting for their pandit brethren to return. "We all want their return with dignity. Initiate efforts and measures for their return and at their respective places. Rehabilitate them in their respective ancestral localities. But separate colonies is not a good idea," he said.
He added that in 2002, the collation government of PDP-Congress with the support of PDF and CPI (M) had made a visible change.
"People hailed the efforts of that government. They felt change. They witnessed and hailed the political and economic developments from 2002 to 2008," he said.
He added that PDP-Congress government had emerged as a hope for the people of state. "That government opened roads across the LoC.
"Now, the PDP has made an alliance with BJP, assuring people that it would take threads forward from it were left in 2008. Now the people ask where are talks, economic and political initiatives that were your (PDP's) promises," he said.
He asked government "not to make any controversial statement or decisions." "From day one, you came up with controversies. You talked about banning beef in the Muslim majority state of J&K, eroding Article 370 and 35A. Instead of implementing your alliance of agenda, you are busy in controversies from past more than two years. You have failed to make any change or to deliver what you had promised to people," Yasin said.
