MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami expressed disappointment over the remarks of the Army chief general Bipin Rawat on Friday

The Communist leader as per his official handout, said, “At a time when efforts are needed for reaching out to people, such statements are bound to widen the gulf between people of the valley and the rest of the country.”

It added, “Such harsh statements could compound the already hostile situation in Kashmir and prove counterproductive. This was the time for taking confidence building measures (CBMs) as there is huge trust deficit. The present situation is an outcome of trust deficit and reflection of accumulated anger over the decades. The situation won’t improve unless the governments both at the Centre and in the State respond to disillusionment and hopelessness in Kashmir.”

Terming the pelting stones as an expression of disillusionment, he has said, “They (stone pelters) want to be heard but nobody is listening. The response to stones with guns is highly unfortunate and unacceptable.”
