JAMMU: Accusing the Interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma of working in furtherance of the separatist agenda of Kashmir centric forces, Harsh Dev Singh, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister, on Friday decried the blatant disregard for the concerns of Jammu region by the said central representative.
Despite hundreds of delegations of Jammu region having projected the issues of Jammu and its perpetual subjugation by Kashmir dominated political system, before the interlocutor, not a single issue was reported to have been addressed, lamented Harsh.
Speaking to media persons, Singh said that several statements made by the Interlocutor and appearing in the media revealed that immediately after his political sojourn to Kashmir, he had recommended and ensured the release of stone pelters despite gravest of offences registered against them for attacks on armed forces.
He said that the Interlocutor had further made a statement assuring the separatists forces in Kashmir that Article 35A would not be tinkered with despite the matter being sub justice in the Apex Court.
He further expressed his dismay over the media reports wherein the Interlocutor had recommended the grant of citizenship/State Subject rights to the dependents/families of terrorists who had married in Pak and returned to Kashmir by illegally crossing the borders through Nepal route.
He further accused the Interlocutor for his recommendations over Rehabilitation Policy for surrendered militants and deceased stone pelters families which had severely dampened the morals of security forces besides causing huge dis-enchantment amongst the nationalist forces.
Regretting the highly pathetic plight of border dwellers, Singh deplored their utter neglect with no action or recommendation having been made for ameliorating their lot by the so called special Representative.
The BJP-PDP was hell bent to crush all voice of dissent in Jammu region abusing its power and authority to settle personal political scores with its political opponents which could further lead to alienation and unrest, he added.
Expressing displeasure over the brazen contemptuous disregard for Jammu, Singh described the Interlocutor’s appointment as another fraud of the Central Government with a highly marginalised Jammu region.
Parshotam Parihar State Secretary Panthers Trade Union was also present in the press conference.
