President’s rule only solution to Kashmir unrest: NPP

Jammu (J-K) [India], Sept. 3 : The National Panther Party (NPP) on Saturday said the only solution to end the unrest in Kashmir is imposition of President rule in the state.

NPP leader Bhim Singh said that the interactions he had with the people of the state clearly signifies that none of them are ready to compromise, adding getting rid of the BJP-PDP government from the state will only help in ending the unrest in the valley.

"It is surprising that the Indian Government is sending a delegation to Kashmir tomorrow morning. I have recently come back from Kashmir. And when this news got viral, there the oppressors and separatists called for a shutdown. This is the kind of reception Prime Minister Modi's delegation is getting," said Singh "I am from a political party, I spoke about the Centre's delegation within my party and other parties, all asked one thing that what the agenda of this delegation is.

I have come back from Kashmir yesterday and met all people from all sides which matter in this case including the Hurriyat conference leader, nobody is ready to compromise.

They all have one condition that President's rule should be imposed in the state and the current government should be quashed.

If this happens then I think the situation there might pacify and the youth, who have come out in the streets might return to their homes," he added.

Union Ministers Arun Jaitley, Dr Jitendra Singh and Ram Vilas Paswan will also be part of the delegation, besides leaders of the opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad and Mallikarjun Kharge.

JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav, Sitaram Yechury, CPI leader D. Raja, NCP's Tariq Anwar and TMC's Saugata Roy will be the part of the delegation. Other members of the delegation include Shiv Sena's Sanjay Raut, Akali Dal's Prem Singh Chandumajra, BJD's Dilip Tirkey and AIMIM's Asaduddin Owaisi.

The Valley is facing unrest due to protests in the aftermath of the killing of terrorist Burhan Wani on July 8.

The Valley has seen possibly the longest spell of protests for over 50 days in which 70 people have lost their lives so far.
