Kishtwar, August 12: - Vice President JKPCC and MLA Inderwal Ghulam Mohammad Saroori met with Youth Congress delegations at Kishtwar and called upon the party & youth Congress workers to approach public and expose the truth behind the anti-people policies of the PDP-BJP and NDA governments.
Reiterating the Congress policy to have harmonious relations with Kashmir state, Saroori has questioned the role of the PDP-BJP which always indulged in rhetorics on the issue for the sake of its domestic politics and accused the Modi government for following an inconsistent and zig-zag policy towards Kashmir.
Reacting to the recent situation in Kashmir, JKPCC Vice Chief Mr. Ghulam Mohammad Saroori has said that Congress always favoured dialogue and friendly relations with Kashmir and always persued a policy for engaging the Kashmir people for dialogue process but it was BJP which oftenly indulged in negative rhetorics over there initiatives by the Congress led government at the centre.
He referred to the initiatives of the Congress led governments from time to time to engage Kashmir in the process of dialogue to have better relations and resolve outstanding issues, however at times the events and the situation emerging from Kashmir overtook the peace initiatives and derailed the peace process. In this regard he referred various historic initiatives during the UPA regime under the Prime Ministership of Dr. Manmohan Singh which was a major CBM between the people of Kashmir and with the country.
Questioning BJP’s role, Saroori said that the party always indulged in rhetorics for the sake of its domestic politics which further vitiated the atmosphere for peace process and initiatives for normalizing the relations with Kashmiri people. However, the Congress is firm on its policy which always favoured better relations with Kashmir people and to engage Kashmir in the process of dialogue for maintaining peace in the region. He also said that PDP-BJP government as well as Centre has faltered on their poll promises.
