Rajiv-Farooq accord creator of ‘gun culture’ in Kashmir: Saraf

Srinagar, December 7
Stating that Rajiv-Farooq accord is the creator of ‘Gun Culture’ in Kashmir, Lok Janshakti Party’s (LJP) National Youth Wing President, Sanjay Saraf today urged Hurriyat leadership to look into the sufferings of common Kashmiris.
Addressing a news conference here at Lala Rukh, Saraf said, “It is because of Rajiv-Farooq accord that the Kashmiris picked up guns here.
I believe that the accord is the only reason that Molvi Muhammad Yousuf became Salah-ud-din.” He said that Kashmiris must understand that some politicians for their vested interests are playing over the killings and other issues.
“When a Kashmiri youth is being killed, they (politicians) make hue and cry only to snowball the issue,” he said. Saraf said, “Farooq Abdullah who has extended his support to Hurriyat for pursuing the current uprising must resign from the mainstream political position and should join hands with Hurriyat leaders.
” He said that it is unfortunate that Kashmiris are being killed and the politicians here are playing politics over such issues.Meanwhile, he said that some elements are torching school buildings in the Valley aimed to leave Kashmiris uneducated. “We must condemn such actions of the arsonists,” he added.
He also appealed Hurriyat leaders to feel the agony of common people. “Those who belong to poor section of the society are being pushed towards walls due to such shutdowns. I appeal Hurriyat leadership to feel their pain,” he said. Saraf also said that he failed to understand that why are we (Kashmiris) demanding freedom raising the flag of other country in the hands. “I don’t understand why Kashmiri people are demanding freedom while raising the flags of other country in hands.”
He said that with the current uprising in Kashmir, the development and other main processes got stopped thereby the funds are being utilized in Jammu and Ladakh region.
