Srinagar, August 23: CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Sunday said situation in J&K is disappointing and hopelessness has engulfed the whole region because of BJP government’s wrong decisions and policies.
The joint resolution of six political parties stating they will strive for reverting to pre-August 5, 2019, position, a significant decision. It is the responsibility of the political parties to get the people out of this hopeless situation and it is a welcome step that they have initiated the process.
We expect more people from all regions and communities to join this process so that the dignity of J&K is restored. We stand by the unity and diversity of the historic state of Jammu and Kashmir. Any division of the state is unacceptable to people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
Foundations of the relationship between J&K and Union of India were assaulted on 5 August 2019 and it was accompanied by repressive measures meant to silence people and coerce them into submission. However, unanimity amongst political parties to collectively struggle to get back the special status and restore the Constitutional guarantees forcibly taken away, is a welcome step.
