Member of Parliament (MP) and senior PDP leader, Muzaffar Hussain Beig on Wednesday said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi should personally intervene into the issues related to Kashmir and restore normalcy in the Valley.
Speaking in a seminar titled, "Way forward in Kashmir" held in Delhi, Beig said that the youth cutting across the barriers of villages, territories and cities are taking part in protests while the current protests looks like unprecedented.
He accused Pakistan of sponsoring the current unrest in Kashmir.
"But Pakistan is interfering in current situation in Kashmir while Hafiz Sayeed who carried out procession over it indicates that Pakistan is also sponsoring current situation of Kashmir," he said.
He said that it is true that Kashmir cannot be separated from India at any cost but Prime Minister and his other ministers should personally intervene into the issues related to Kashmir. "Whatever PM has promised to the people of Kashmir, he should fulfill those at earliest. Fulfilling promises at this time cannot solve the issue but priority at this time to restore the peace," he said.
CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam, M Y Tarigami while addressing in the seminar said that the government of India has failed to fulfil the promises made with the people of Kashmir. "Until the GoI will not accept the people of Kashmir, it is impossible to stop such kind of situations across the Valley," he said.
He said that at this point of time "we are irrelevant as nobody listens to us."
Democratic Party Nationalist (DPN) president and former agriculture minister, Ghulam Hassan Mir said that youth of Kashmir have not been empowered in any manner that is the only reason they choose militancy.
Kashmir has been on the boil after government forces killed 22-year-old Burhan Wani, leader of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen on July 8.
Fifty-two people have been killed and more than 5,000 wounded in protests that erupted after the killing of Wani. KNS
