Expressing serious concern over the recent reports about reestablishment of the CRPF bunkers in several areas of Srinagar, Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday said the authorities here are hell-bent in colonizing the region at large.
Geelani told KNS that the reestablishment of the CRPF bankers in several areas of valley vindicates that the authorities always have made the hollow made of peace and tranquility in the region that in actual is contrary to the ground situation.
The Huriyat (G) chairman further stated that the region is being converted into the army garrison and more deployment of forces here is being is highly condemnable and the people here must raise their voices against such anarchic measures.
Geelani further stated that the ‘remilitarization’ in several areas of Srinagar gives the clear message that the fake promises of the authorities here must not be trusted at any level and that the efforts are being prioritized to strengthen the army rule here. “At one time we heard that the for the convenience of general masses, the CRPF bankers would be no more on the streets but what we witness now is that more permanent bases of CRPF are coming up.”
The Huriyat (G) chairman further added, “The aim of establishing more bankers in valley is to harass people at large and to restrict their movements so that the mental torture among the people could be inflicted.”
Castigating the local authorities for being the mute spectators over the ‘grave’ issue, the senior separatist leader accused that the mainstream politicians here work on the dictates of army and that there role in the home affairs of New Delhi is not even marginal. “Earlier they used raise slogans for the healing touch and zero tolerance, the fact is that they cannot even move a single army personnel from one spot the other. They in fact are the collaborators in unleashing terror against the people here.”
Pertinently, the reports came to fore that the forces bunkers have been established on the 14-km stretch from Pantha Chowk to Parimpora on the Bypass Road in the recent past and that the CRPF has sent the proposal to the state government here seeking land at HMT and Baramulla.
