Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz Wednesday said everybody should wait for government of India’s response to the resolution adopted by the Legislative Assembly and the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s letter seeking probe into former army chief V K Singh’s remarks against political mainstream of Jammu and Kashmir.
Talking to a local news agency, KNS, Soz said that since the former army chief was working under Government of India, both the resolution and Omar’s letter have been addressed to the union government. “I think everybody should wait for the government of India’s response as the resolution adopted by the House and Chief Minister’s letter have sought one and the same thing that is a credible probe,” the PCC chief said.
On September 25, Omar had shot a letter to Dr Manmohan Sigh seeking a thorough inquiry into the allegations leveled by former army chief V K Singh against Jammu and Kashmir ministers.
Pertinently, National Conference has moved a privilege motion against V K Singh seeking his personal appearance to face the House. The speaker of the Legislative Assembly Mubarak Gul when contacted was not available for the comment over the issue.
Peoples’ Democratic Front (PDF) chairman Hakeem Mohammad Yaseen when contacted by KNS alleged that the government is not serious in resolving former army chief’s issue. “The statements are creating doubts in the minds of people. Former army chief’s remarks have dented the democratic institutions of the state and the issue deserves a thorough consideration.”
However, the Agriculture minister Ghulam Hassan Mir when contacted refused to comment on the issue. “Already much has been said and heard, I will not comment further.”
