Govt, advisory on yatris, tourists unprecedented; Why is panic being created in Kashmir?

Srinagar: While reacting to Center’s decision to rush additional  25000 paramilitary forces into Kashmir and keeping Air Force on high alert, CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Friday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence in Parliament over the issue.

What was the need for putting Air Force on high alert and deploying additional forces? Yatra is going on smoothly with good turnover, situation is said to be improving in Kashmir. The Governor had recently termed speculations about revocation of Article 35A as rumours. Then what is the urgency for such measures?

Parliament is in session and why isn’t Prime Minister taking the House into confidence? Why is government keeping the country in dark? Government must take the country into confidence and let the PM speak in the Parliament now.

Eid is just 10-days away and this type of panic is bound to disturb the coming Eid  Festivals.

Meanwhile, terming the government’s order asking Amarnathji yatris and tourists to immediately cut short their stay in the Valley and return as soon as possible, as unprecedented, CPI (M) state secretary G N Malik said a panic situation has been created among yatris and tourists.

Amarnathji yatra has been going for decades and even in the peak of militancy, never ever yatra was stopped in the midst like it has been done today. This unprecedented government advisory has created panic among yatries, tourists and their families.

All of a sudden despite huge deployment of security forces, the government has asked the yatris to return. Couldn’t the government have continued with the yatra instead of issuing an advisory in panic? Such order is a panic reaction which has created lot of uncertainty among yatries, tourists and general public. (GNS)
