FCIK condemns killings, asks PDP-BJP Govt to step down
Federation Chamber of Industry Kashmir (FCIK) has condemned the ongoing killing spree in Kashmir and has urged PDP-BJP government to step down as "it has lost moral ground to govern owing to their failure to protect the lives of people".
In a statement here, a spokesman of FCIK said, "They have no moral ground to govern owing to their failure to stop killings."
"We condemn the state government for using brute force with lethal affect against protestors that led to loss of precious lives and injury to hundreds of people," he said.
He stated that a delegation of chamber visited various hospitals to take stock of the situation. The delegation met injured in the hospitals and observed that the intention of forces was not "dispersion of mobs but killing" them as majority of them had received bullets or pellets above waist line.
The delegation has reported that the number of casualties can go up than the official figures given in the respect.
The delegation led by Syed Fazal Illahi, Mukhtar Yousuf, Abid Ali, Zain ul Abideen, Masood Ali Wani, Rouf Ahmad, Sajad Ahmad and others distributed mineral water, bread, juices, milk and other eatables among the attendants of the injured persons.
The delegation extended their sympathies to the bereaved families who lost their dear ones due to forces' action.
