CPI-M asks for resumption of dialogue process on Kashmir
Srinagar, June 26, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, in the backdrop of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit to Kashmir, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) has expressed its dissatisfaction over the current scenario in the territory.
The party in a statement issued in Srinagar, said that the disillusionment of people had increased and the expectations regarding improvement in the overall socio-economic situation and progress of peace process had decreased.
The hanging of Muhammad Afzal Guru and some other unfortunate incidents have resulted in serious setback to the political process and reconciliation, he added.
In order to reduce the sufferings of the people and usher an era of peace and prosperity in the region, the stalled Indo-Pak dialogue needs to be given priority, it added.
The party said harsh and draconian laws like AFSPA and PSA continue to haunt the young generation of Kashmir. “This needs to be cleared and corrected. The cases of those languishing in jails outside the territory should be taken on fast tract so that speedy justice is done,” the CPI-M stressed.
