Almost a month and curfew continues in Kashmir, and the constant state of strife is not helping in alleviating the problem – evidently the discussion in the parliament house continues.
In a bid to win over the hearts and trust of Kashmiri people, the opposition in Rajyasabha stressed on the need for an all-party delegation to be sent to the valley. Instead of paying lip servive to Vajpayee mantra of Insaniyat, Jamhooriyat and Kashmieeriyat, it is time for some action if the situation needs to improve, and not deteriorate further, they said.
The opposition called for a ban on pellet guns that continue to be used and you have injured people undergoing treatment at hospitals across Kashmir.
The government should lift the curfew and open a political dialogue, and implement the recommendations from various committees to improve the situation, said Ghulam Nabi Azad, who wanted something beyond mere words. .
For the last 33 days Kashmir valley is reeling under violence and there is no attempt to find respite, and the several discussion in the parliament are turning out to be nothing but just that – empty talk.
