Tunnel not an alternative to political initiative: Dr. Farooq

Srinagar, Apr 02 (KNS): Conference President Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Sunday said the Chenani-Nashri Tunnel being portrayed as an alternative to a political initiative is yet another indication of a sustained effort to brush the political issue in under the carpet. While welcoming the inauguration of the tunnel which was conceived, initiated and nearly completed during the tenure of the previous UPA Government in New Delhi, Dr. Farooq Abdullah said while economic development and infrastructural growth is essential, the State would continue to suffer unless New Delhi takes a political initiative to resolve the longstanding political issue in consonance with the sentiments of the people.

Dr. Farooq Abdullah said the recent spree of civilian killings and use of lethal force on protestors was an alarming and saddening trend that contradicted the promises and rhetoric of PDP before it came to power. The repercussions of this dangerous policy are for everyone to see. Unfortunately the PDP-BJP Alliance has chosen to not learn any lessons from the past and continues to alienate the youth of the Valley through this confrontational and insensitive approach”, the National Conference President said.
