Senior CPI-M leader and People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) spokesman Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami has said that the political scenario in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir is very depressing and disturbing as “the promised change is not visible on the ground level”.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Tarigami in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the Modi government which opened a new chapter in Jammu and Kashmir a few years back is nothing but disappointment.
“In the process which started on August 5, 2019, nothing but mischief is visible among the people,” he said, adding that nothing seems to have changed on ground.
He said that the facts on the ground are showing that what was said did not happen. “People will raise their voices when the time comes,” he said.
“It is sad to say that promises were made to the people of Jammu and Kashmir that after the removal of Article 370, there will be jobs in Jammu and Kashmir, but nothing is happening,” he added.
“By distorting constitutional rights, I don’t think people even have hope now,” he said, adding that if people mean anything to the Modi government, they have to change the behavior in favour of the people of Jammu and Kashmir including Ladakh.” About PAGD, he said that the leaders never got a chance to get together due to the restrictions.
“We tried many times to go out together but nothing happened due to restrictions. However, the journey of PAGD will continue while our priority will remain that we will bring back what has been taken from us,” he added.—INP
