Congress urges Centre to take effective measures to ensure safety of students, citizens

Srinagar, Feb 19: The J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President G.A. Mir has sought immediate end to the harassment of students and other citizens of valley in various parts of the country.

In a statement issued to media here, G.A. Mir has urged the Centre Government to take more effective measures to ensure peaceful atmosphere in the Country, as that, various disruptive forces in the wake of Pulwama attack are taking advantage and started intimidating particular community.

“People of Jammu and Kashmir especially from valley were being forced to leave, which is matter of serious concern and should be dealt sternly,” G.A. Mir urged Centre Government.

Meanwhile, JKPCC Vice President and ex MLC G N Monga also expressed serious concern over the safety and security of Kashmir students, businessmen, employees and others living in Jammu and other parts of the country. “Rioters are moving on two wheelers in Jammu and constantly harassing Kashmiris, but the law enforcing agencies are still not able to control them. Kashmiri students are being hounded and humiliated in various parts of the country by the goons which is a shameful act,” he said in a statement issued here to the media.

“Authorities are giving only assurances while on the ground it is mobs backed by a political party who are having a say. The l violence against Kashmiris in Jammu and outside is a tool to shift the blame and could indisputably disenchant people of the state,” Monga said.

He said by intimidating Kashmiris these divisive forces were trying to create a wedge between different communities in the country which Congress party will fight tooth and nail.
