Stone-pelting in Baramulla must stop: Soz
SRINAGAR, Nov 24: Former Union Minister and president J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz today stated that stone pelting in Baramulla should end as this caused lot of damage to the peaceful civil activities in Baramulla.

Prof Soz made this statement while addressing the gathering of prominent citizens at Delina and interacting with the members of the Traders federation and coordination committee of various organizations at Dak Bungalow Baramulla.

Among other things Soz advised the Coordination Committee to get back to various Members of the Coordination Committee and appeal to them not to organize the strike in Baramulla on November 27 for fulfillment of their demands in respect of Mother Child hospital, provision of street lights to Baramulla town and setting up a Health Centre in old town besides other demands. He assured them that he would join them fully for fulfillment of demands but this could be done better democratically rather than through an agitation.

The Coordination Committee members assured him that they would try their best to convince transporters, Medical Workers, Traders Federation and Auqafi Islamia not to organize strike on November 27.

Soz also told the administration that he would visit old town very soon and in the meantime his message was that stone pelting in Baramulla must end as this caused lot of damage to the peaceful civil activities in Baramulla.

Soz also addressed a gathering in Sikh Sammelan at Baramulla where leaders of Sikh community led by advocate Karnail, Autar Singh and Karan Singh presented a memorandum to him highlighting the problems of the Sikh community.

Soz was accompanied by Minister of Housing, Horticulture and Culture Raman Bhalla, MLC Ghulam Nabi Monga, vice presidents Salman Anees Soz, Mir Mushtaq Nowsherry, Aftab Ahmad Beigh, Shoaib Nabi Lone besides others.

The main demand of the Sikh Community was that this community should be declared specifically as a `minority’ for pointed attention to solve the problems of this community. Soz told them that he had taken up their problems very seriously and invited Raman Bhalla Minister of Housing & Horticulture to remain in touch with this community and solve the problems.

Bhalla responding to the statement of Prof Soz and memorandum of the community, assured the community that he would give his serious attention towards appreciation of these problems and their resolution. He told them that within a short time, he would prepare note for the cabinet and put up the same to the cabinet for consideration and decision.
