Kejriwal asks Modi govt to cancel bonds that Kashmiri Pandits forced to sign

22

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that the BJP is incompetent to handle situation in Jammu and Kashmir and demanded that the Modi government should immediately cancel the bonds that Kashmiri Pandits were forced to sign under the so-called PM Relief Plan that said the Pandits cannot work outside Kashmir.

Kejriwal said this while addressing a rally organised by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi to remember those who were killed in the occupied territory.

He said the entire population across India had been rattled with the way violence was unfolding in the Kashmir Valley and that there was a great degree of anger towards the current situation there.

He said that every time there was a killing in Kashmir, Indian Home Minister called a “high-level” meeting, which was “only a gimmick”.

He assured every single resident of Jammu and Kashmir that the AAP was there for them and that it would not falter in taking any necessary step in ensuring peace in their households. “I will soon meet Home Minister Amit Shah to discuss the situation with him. The entire country is here to protect Kashmir. We will definitely find a solution,” he added.

Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Monday blamed “some elements” in Pakistan for the fresh spate of killings in Kashmir, saying “they can’t digest the robust economy and tourism here “, news agency ANI reported.

“Some elements on the other side are attempting to create instability, they can’t digest the robust economy and tourism here,” the ANI report quoted LG Sinha saying over the killings. Sinha was talking to the media on the sidelines of a government function in Shalimar area of Srinagar.

Kashmir valley has seen over a dozen targeted killings this year so far. On Thursday a non-local worker was shot dead by terrorists and another injured at a brick kiln in Chadoora Budgam.—KMS
