Taking exception to the Governor Satyapal Malik describing political parties as “irrelevant” in Kashmir, CPI(M) MLA Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Tuesday said that the governor should analyse the setback that J&K would suffer if the political process becomes irrelevant.
In a statement, Tarigami said that the recent statement of Malik that “neither political parties nor other organizations are so relevant in Kashmir as youth” could have been avoided.
Rather, he could have advised the political leadership to introspect why the political process in Kashmir is becoming irrelevant. It is not a healthy trend but a serious concern.
The political parties and political process being irrelevant is the reason for anger building up. We hope that the Governor having vast political experience will analyse and see how serious the implications for the people of the state and the country will be if political parties and political process becomes irrelevant.
