Srinagar, May 08, 2023 (PPI-OT): The Indian National Congress chapter in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have said that the Indian government wants to falsely project normalcy by holding a G20 event while there was an emergency-like situation in the territory. The President of Indian National Congress chapter in IIOJK, Vikar Rasool Wani talking to reporters after a party function in Srinagar said, “The G20 countries should also internally keep an eye on the situation in Kashmir. The democracy has been wiped out here, there is an emergency-like situation created by the BJP.”
“They are showing the roads to the G20, roads have been destroyed, now only pictures are being put up…the G20 should also know about the internal situation in Jammu and Kashmir, the lack of democracy, the absence of an (elected) assembly, snatching of the statehood and the division of the state,” Wani said. Wani claimed that he was denied permission to hold public rallies in the Valley but the BJP’s like-minded parties are continuously allowed to do so.
The PDP leader, Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura, said while holding the G20 working group meeting in Kashmir may boost tourism in the valley, the main aim of the Indian government is to falsely project normalcy in the territory. Hajura said the people in Kashmir were facing problems as authorities have tightened the security measures ahead of the G20 meeting.
On demands for another surgical strike on Pakistan, he said, “After first surgical strike, the situation is as it was. Guns are not the solution, the PDP advocates dialogue only. India and Pakistan should come to the table for talks along with stakeholders to find a solution.”
