Raises questions over complete cancellation of Amarnath Yatra
STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: Congress on Wednesday regretted the non-invitation & non-inclusion to other mainstream recognized political parties especially from Jammu region, as the BJP does not want others to highlight their (BJP) failures and hollowness of claims and it is against the spirit of democracy and process of dialogue.JKPCC Chief Spokesperson Ravinder Sharma flanked by former Minister & Vice President JKPCC Raman Bhalla also raised questions over the complete cancellation of Amarnath Yatra, when COVID situation has improved and Vaishno Devi Yatra is going on.Sharma questioned the non-invitation & non-inclusion to other mainstream political parties and other social groups especially having their voice in Jammu & Kashmir, who had been earlier too invited and participated in the round table conferences on J&K during UPA Govt. headed by Dr. Manmohan Singh.Sharma questioned why those parties who had been in electoral politics for long time and had their representatives in the past in the state legislature besides other socio-political groups representing various sections and groups have not been invited. Why selective approach when these groups have been part of earlier deliberations during UPA.Probably BJP does not want any other political party to exist in Jammu Region and it fears exposures of its hollow claims post August 2019 in Jammu region too.He regretted that BJP UT unit yesterday even failed to say that it would demand statehood back, so what are expectations from BJP leaders representing J&K in dialogue process.The Congress party which is a national party having its base in all regions of Jammu and Kashmir will represent the voice and aspirations of all such sections but it could have been more meaningful if it had been more broad based with participation of other genuine political shades of opinion. Various sections are dismayed, as they were promised by BJP, in the past.Bhalla and Sharma strongly criticized the complete cancellation of Holy Amarnath Yatra when COVID situation has improved a lot for time being and Holy Vaishno Devi Yatra is going on besides normal business activities have been restored.The government has double standards on this aspect, they said.Limited number of Yatris and holy Yatra should have been allowed and if at all the COVID situation worsens again, the Yatra could have been stopped like BJP Govt. did in August 2019, for disbanding the state, they said.The Congress leaders also impressed upon the Govt. to make full preparations of the anticipated third wave of COVID-19 and improve health infrastructure and the expeditions coverage of all for vaccine, as requested by the Congress leadership Rahul Gandhi.The failure of the Govt. to respond to the earlier concerns of the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, resulted into the people have suffered and died in first and especially second wave of Covid.The senior congress leaders strongly condemned the killing of CID inspector Parvez Ahmed Dar in Kashmir yesterday and paid tributes to the slain cop and expressed sympathies with his family.The party reiterated its stand as explained in CWC resolution of Aug,2019 seeking restoration of full statehood immediately without further delay, as much delay has been caused.
