AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has criticized government for "ignoring" the sufferings of people of Keran and other adjoining areas who have been trapped in cross LoC shelling since last many days.
In a statement, Er. Rashid said "despite knowing that situation at borders was tense since last few months, state Government and administration did nothing to ease out the sufferings of people of Keran and adjoining areas." "Government watched like a mute spectator as if it was only waiting to happen the untoward at LoC. Thousands in Keran and adjoining areas have been forced to leave their houses and are wandering to find shelters at safer places. The least Government could have done would have been to provide them concrete bunkers and also shifted many families well in time," he said.
It seems government wanted people to lose their lives so that it could get political mileage at national and international fronts out of the issue," he said.
"I appeal government to provide immediate accommodations and other basic immunities to Keran migrants without any further delay so that they don't face further hardships in coming tough winters," he said.
