SRINAGAR, June 19: Senior National Conference (NC) leader Dr Mustafa Kamal has criticized army for launching “Operation Shiva on the pretext of protecting Amarnath Yatra.
“Army is not the government but an agency. People know that Army could go to any extent to keep the pot boiling for their petty interests,” he said to a local news agency, KNS, adding that AFSPA has to go and Army cannot do anything.
Chairman, Awami Ithihad Party (AIP) Engineer Rashid today launched a scathing attack on the army for communalising Amarnath Yatra. In a statement, he said that Kashmir has become an industry for army where they reap heavy benefits and enjoy privileges in the garb of fighting militancy.
“How can AFSPA repeal hit existing peace in Jammu and Kashmir when there are only few odd militants present in Kashmir. Now army has started playing Amarnath Yatra card and in the garb of this Yatra it is giving an impression that militants can strike Yartis which is absolutely baseless and rubbish. The sole objective of army is to keep the pot boiling and enjoy perks and privileges,” Rashid told a local news agency, CNS.
