Pradesh Congress Committee in Jammu and Kashmir today expressed concern over the ongoing uncertainties in the Valley and alleged that the PDP-BJP coalition government has “failed” to control the protests.
Castigating the state government for “failing to ensure safety of the people,” Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) termed the present situation as “an outcome of utter failure of the government on all fronts”.
Congress also sought clarifications from the government and administration as to why they “could not control the outburst”.
A statement was issued after a meeting of party leaders chaired by PCC president G A Mir here.
The party appealed the people especially youth to shun violence and maintain calm, as the violence would not serve any purpose.
“Rather it will have serious implications on the safety of people, besides damaging the atmosphere of peace,” the PCC said.
Congress also asked its cadres in every district to donate blood for injured people and extend all possible help to them in Hospitals.
Mir accused the ruling dispensation of “mishandling the situation resulting in killing of dozens of innocent youth and injuring more than 200 people, besides causing severe damage to the properties”.
Earlier, AICC president Sonia Gandhi spoke to Mir over phone and expressed her concern over the killings and loss of properties.
“AICC President termed the loss of precious lives as very unfortunate. She conveyed her sympathies,” the PCC statement said.
