Srinagar, May 26: The former Congress chief minister of Maharashtra, Prithvi Raj Chavan on Friday lashed out at the Government of India (GoI) as well as the state government for worsening the situation in the state.
“I have never seen such a brewed up situation in Kashmir before on my previous visits to Kashmir. There is lot of difference between the situations, at present the situation is very much bad,” Chavan said while addressing a presser here at local hotel.
He said that the central as well as the state governments are equally responsible for the current deteriorating situation in the state. “It is the responsibility of both the governments to normalize the situation in Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.
While refusing to comment over Major Gogoi, the army officer responsible for Human shield incident in Budgam he said “I have heard that the Chief Minister has ordered inquiry into the incident. The investigation is yet to be completed and I believe it would be too early to speak over the issue and let the investigation complete first.”
Chavan said, “The government has adopted muscular policy over the resolution of Kashmir issue. The Congress party when in rule tried to reach out to the people of all shades to resolve the issue.”
He said that not even a single promise done with the people of Kashmir has been fulfilled so far. “The party in the government had promised several things but unfortunately they let down the people at all fronts,” he said. Alleging that various scams are coming to fore in this regime. He said that unemployment is on rise in every nook and corner of India. “PM Modi had promised two crore jobs in one year but after completing three years, the six crore jobs are nowhere.
