An emergency meeting of State Executive members of Jammu Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM) was held today at party headquarter at Rajabagh to discuss the ongoing situation in Jammu and Kashmir State.
The party statement said that members from various parts of the state attended the meeting.
“All the members expressed their concern over the deteriorating security situation in the state and a sense of fear psychosis that is being created due to the issuance of frequent orders by the state government without giving any reasonable justification about these orders,” said the statement.
It said that the recent advisory issued to the tourists and the Amarnath pilgrims was also discussed and it was felt that the advisory has added to the panic and due to the return of tourists from the valley, Kashmir is on edge.
“It has been for the first time for the last 30 years that Kashmir has been turned into a tourist-free place which is a heavy setback to the state economy,” it said.
“It was resolved to make an appeal to the governments of India and Pakistan to maintain peace at the borders and not indulge into miscalculated adventurism that can have serious implications for the peace of South Asia,” it added.
“It was discussed that all the issues pending between the two countries would better be resolved with peaceful means and instead of show-off of might and military power the two countries should sit down and not imperil the lives of people at the borders,” said the statement.
“The state executive appealed to all political parties in the state to put up a united face and come together in this moment of crisis to give hope to the people of Kashmir,” it said.
“The state executive also charted out the future strategy in case of an assault on the special status of the Jammu Kashmir state and resolved that peaceful public action will be resorted to in cases the need arises and people will be informed and educated about the need or protection of the special status,” it added.
