The J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) has said that the situation in Kashmir Valley is alarming which needs some urgent measures by the central government to retrieve the situation which is fast reverting towards early 90s.
President J&K PCC G.A. Mir took stock of the situation with senior leaders of the party in both regions of the state in wake of deterioration in situation in the valley in spite of unilateral ceasefire by the Centre during the holy month of Ramzan, despite the apprehensions and objections to the move by certain quarters.
The J&K PCC said there was no takers to the unilateral ceasefire both within and outside and across the borders and the situation took ugly turn in the valley and on the borders as a result the centre has to revoke the same.
The immediate challenge to conduct smoothly the Shri Amarnath Yatra and tackle the situation lies on the Centre, as the state government has almost left with no role in the given situation, as such the Centre has to feel the pulse of people and take appropriate measures to arrest the situation from further deterioration to the navel from where it would be difficult to retrieve.
The Centre has failed to take all mainstream parties on board and evolve a national consensus on Kashmir situation while taking significant decisions to deal with the situation, whereas the Congress party and other mainstream forces always extended positive cooperation and support to any move of the centre to restore normalcy.
In the given situation, it is for the Centre to take timely steps needed in the situation and draw a roadmap to deal with the overall security situation and civil unrest failing which the onus would lie on the centre and state for the ongoing situation, which is worsening further with each passing day.
