Ganga’s remarks intimidating, unjustifiable: Madni
KT NEWS SERVICE
SRINAGAR, Apr 20: Strongly condemning, what he termed the grossly insensitive remarks, of senior BJP leader and minister for industries, Chander Parkash Ganga, PDP vice-president, Mohammad Sartaj Madni today said such disgusting utterances are not only unjustifiable but perilous as well.

“It is unbecoming of a senior minister in the government to dish out such a sweeping, sickening and intimidating statement against the Kashmiri youth,” Madni said in a statement.

Ganga had recently advocated using bullets against stone-pelters. However, following the criticism he said his statement was wrong interpreted. Talking to media in Jammu today, he favoured talks with stone pelters and using bullets against militants, who have taken to gun.

Madni said the statement of Ganga is also in contravention to the stand of the state cabinet on the issue which in its meeting held in Jammu on April 18, expressed deep anguish over the loss of lives in the Valley and directed the security agencies to exercise maximum restraint while handling law and order situations to prevent loss of lives.

He added that instead of reaching out to the distressed and alienated Kashmiri youth and address their concerns, the hawkish rhetoric of such fringe elements has the danger of further adding to the alienation of the people and impeding the government’s efforts of restoring peace and calm in the Valley.

“Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had entered into an alliance with the BJP only with the objective of bridging the gulf between the people of different regions the State and taking Jammu and Kashmir to new heights of inclusive development and prosperity,” he said and added that unfortunately the unwarranted statements of such fringe elements are negating the basic philosophy of this alliance.

“Instead of bringing the people together, such insidious statements are unfortunately only going to add to the void,” he said and added that a responsible government functionary can’t be seen pitching himself against own people. “We hope that good sense will prevail and the BJP leadership will take serious note of such uncalled-for statement from a senior Minister of the party,” he said and added that instead of provoking the situation in Kashmir, all the right-thinking people should try to find a way out of the present impasse by engaging with all sections of the society in Jammu and Kashmir.
