Separatists Hartal politics only brings destruction, says Mehbooba


Mudassir Ahmad

Srinagar July 28: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said the Hartal of separatists yield nothing instead bringing destruction in Kashmir.

“There are some elements, who were waiting since a long time for the spring, for the and developmental works to start here and then to do something to create trouble and worsen the situation to have strikes. Encounters also take place during winters but there are not strikes then,” Mehbooba said in her speech while addressing the party workers at the party headquarters on the celebration of the foundation day of the PDP.

Apparently referring to separatists, Mehbooba said there are some people who enter into a crowd and change the direction of the people and take them to army camps and police stations but flee themselves.  “They are traders and are experts in doing so.  While those who leave home for some work or join the rally for fun, they are not stone pelters many of them want to see the demonstrations but get killed,” the Chief Minister said. “If you can't control your children then how can the security forces be controlled when their guns are snatched and the weapons are now being recovered.”

She said many youth lost their lives for the last 30 years but the strikes have yielded nothing and only brought the destruction where buildings were burnt and developmental activities were halted.

“During 2010, there was strike for three months in which 120 youth got killed then what happened. Who talk about them? Again 45 youth got killed… They call for protest on first day of Eid then what happen? They are again prolonging the turmoil. Whether there is two day or three month strike nothing will happen? Dialogue is the only way to solve all issues. and Pakistan fought wars in 1947, 65, 71 and 99 but wars didn't serve any purpose. We should make them agree to solve the problems through dialogue like Mufti Mohammad Sayeed did Vajpayee Sahab. Strikes only bring the destruction and we are being demeaned across the ,” she said.
