Srinagar: CPIM leader Mohammad Yosuf Tarigami has said that a “serious situation has developed in Jammu & Kashmir as a consequence of the recent steps taken by the Central government”.
In a statement issued Saturday, Tarigami said the deployment of an additional contingent of paramilitary forces – amounting to 35,000 troops – had “raised questions about their intended purpose”.
He said that the “unprecedented cancellation of the Amarnath yatra mid-way and the instructions to tourists to leave the valley forthwith have heightened tensions and anxieties among the people”.
Tarigami further said while Parliament was in session, the Central government had given no statement whatsoever for the latest developments in Kashmir.
“Nor have the political parties in the state been taken into confidence”.
“All this has fuelled apprehensions among the people that some drastic measures affecting the Constitutional status of Jammu & Kashmir are being contemplated with reference to Article 35A and Article 370,” he said.
Tarigami urged the government to provide a “full explanation for the steps being taken in J&K and desist from any political adventurism which will have grave consequences for the country”.
“The government should implement its promise to initiate a dialogue with all concerned political forces in the state,” he said.
