Senior Congress leader Saifuddin Soz today denounced the killing of eight youth during elections in Central Kashmir yesterday, insisting "electoral politics alone cannot yield a solution to the Kashmir problem."

"I strongly condemn the killing of at least eight youth and injuries to scores in firing by security forces yesterday in Pakharpora and other places in Budgam district of Kashmir. The people of Kashmir rightly described it a black day for democracy," he said. 

"I had cautioned the mainstream leaders six months ago that while maintaining their identity in respect of parties, they could undertake an exercise to ascertain how best to respond to the aspirations of the people of Kashmir and also serve the broader interests of the country," he said.
