New Delhi, February 22, 2019 (PPI-OT): The General Secretary of Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI-M), Sitaram Yechury, has said that the Indian government has tacitly and overtly created a situation in which calls of violence against Kashmiris were being given and executed. Sitaram Yechury in a Facebook post said the Pulwama incident in which 40 Indian CRPF troops were killed was a result of colossal failure of politics in the occupied territory.
He said “instead of fixing responsibility, upholding the basic democratic norm of accountability, we see that the Modi government has misused the support given by the political opposition to bring the perpetrators of the incident to justice” and to hide its failures, it has tacitly and overtly created a situation where calls for violence against Kashmiris are being openly given and executed. He said this is shameful, undemocratic and blatantly ‘anti-national’ politics from BJP-RSS.
“In playing petty politics, the Modi government has finished all middle ground in Kashmir and strengthened the militancy. Who is accountable for the mess now? BJP governors speak of boycotts of Kashmiris? Will this enable normalcy to return,” he asked.
