SRINAGAR, Dec 31: CPI (M) State secretary and MLA Kulgam, Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami today urged India and Pakistan to cut their military spending and focus their investment on dialogue to resolve all outstanding issues.
Addressing a meeting held in connection with the 19th death anniversary of veteran Kissan leader, Abdul Kabir Wani at Kulgam, Tarigami said the confrontation between India and Pakistan over the past six decades has not yielded anything except for miseries and sufferings to the people in whole of the region.
Tarigami said that people have realized that dialogue is the only way out to settle all contentious issues and the leadership of the two countries must draw on the advantage of this consensus across the border.
Tarigami said that it has become inevitable for both the countries to reverse their policy directions, adding that the alternative lies in a massive hike in investment on dialogue and building bilateral bonds. He said a conscious and gradual approach is needed to remove the layers of negative disposition among the people, especially the political class in order to socialize them into a positive temperament.
Referring to the Pulwama firing incident, Tarigami said it is unfortunate that instead of bringing culprits responsible for the avoidable incident to justice, the administration is furthering sufferings of people by imposing restrictions on them.
