Jammu Tawi, April 14
Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Dr Nirmal Singh today alleged that Farooq Abdullah headed National Conference was responsible for the mess in the State. “Dr Farooq Abdullah and his party are responsible for the situation that we are facing today in Jammu and Kashmir,” Dr Singh told the mediapersons at the sidelines of a function here this afternoon.
He said, “these are the people who talk of democracy but when it come to ‘democratic process’, they create hurdles in the course of action.”
Reacting on Dr Abdullah’s statement that some stone pelters were ‘Government paid’, the Deputy Chief Minister termed it ‘condemnable and unfortunate’ asserting that these people instigate them (stone pelters) and blame the Government.
Referring to the stone pelters assaulting and humiliating CRPF men in Valley, Dr Singh reiterated that it was ‘unfortunate’ and stern action against perpetrators would be taken.
“This shows how disciplined are our security forces as they didn’t open fire as they had not ‘orders’, despite that they were facing allegations of Human Right violations, Dr Singh said, adding, “it is the responsibility of Government to take action against culprits.”
He said that to his knowledge, FIR stands registered in this regard and some accused too have been arrested while investigations are on.
Replying to a query about Agenda of Alliance (AoA), Dr Singh said that in the larger interests of people of the State, both Centre and State Governments would initiate to restore peace and development in the State as agreed under Agenda of Alliance.
