JAMMU, June 17: J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) today said that the situation in the Kashmir valley is alarming and heading towards early 90s and there is urgent need to take affective measures by the Central Govt.
The PCC president GA Mir took stock of the situation with senior leaders of the party in both regions of the State in the wake of deteriorating situation in the Valley inspite of unilateral ceasefire by the Centre during the Holy Month of Ramzan, despite the apprehensions and objections to the move by certain quarters.
The J&K PCC said there was no takers to the unilateral ceasefire both within and outside and across the borders and the situation took ugly turn in the Valley and also on the borders, as a result the Centre has to revoke the same.
The immediate challenge to conduct Shri Amarnath Ji Yatra smoothly and tackle the situation lies on the Centre Govt, as the State Govt has almost left with no role in the given situation, as such the Centre has to feel the pulse of people and take appropriate measures to arrest the situation from further deterioration to the level from where it would be difficult to retrieve, PCC chief said.
The Centre Govt has failed to take all mainstream parties on board and evolve a national consensus on Kashmir situation while taking significant decisions to deal with the situation, whereas, the Congress party and other mainstream forces always extended positive cooperation and support to any move of the Centre to restore normalcy.
In the given situation, it is for the Centre Govt to take timely steps needed in the situation and draw a roadmap to deal with the overall security situation and civil unrest failing which the onus would lie on the Centre and State for the ongoing situation, which is worsening further with each passing day, Mir added.
