KOLKATA: CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Saturday said the Centre’s policy on Kashmir is “diabolical” and the “alienation of the people of the Valley is almost complete”.
The BJP-led Government at the Centre is using the disturbances in Kashmir to “get going its process of communal polarisation,” Yechury said.
He was referring to the spar between cricketer Gautam Gambhir and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Twitter over Hizbul Mujahideen’s top commander Mannan Bashir Wani being gunned down by security forces in an encounter.
“I do not know much about their (Abdullah and Gambhir’s) personal comments. The situation in the Valley is really very, very grave. Alienation of the people of the Valley is almost complete,” Yechury told reporters at the CPI(M) office here. (AGENCIES)
