Congress leader demands debate in Lok Sabha on innocent citizens killings by ‘Army’s mistake’ in IIOJK



Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has demanded a debate on the situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir in the Lower House of parliament, Lok Sabha, saying innocent citizens are losing their lives in the valley.

Raising the matter as the House took up “issues of urgent public importance”, Chowdhury said, “Innocent civilians are losing lives in Jammu and Kashmir, and it is not stopping.”

“… and at times due to the mistakes of the forces, innocent people are losing their lives,” he said. He ridiculed the Modi regime’s claim that which it made while abrogating the Article 370 that India would capture Azad Kashmir, and Aksai Chin, and said that today Pandits are being forced out of the valley.

“We want a detailed discussion in Lok Sabha on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir,” the Congress leader said.

He also mentioned a recent incident from Jammu’s Rajouri town, where two civilians were shot dead and a third was injured on Friday morning near the gate of an Army facility.

“Innocent people have lost their lives in Rajouri due to the Army’s mistake, the government should at least give a statement,” Chowdhury added.—KMS
