Srinagar: CPI-M on Monday demanded that people
of Jammu and Kashmir be apprised of the recommendations of the
Central panel of interlocutors and called for immediate steps
for their implementation to promote peace in the state.

"The people being the most genuine stakeholders in the
peace process deserve to be apprised of the recommendations
made by the interlocutors and the measures, if any, initiated
for implementation of these," CPI-M state secretary M Y
Tarigami said at a rally in south Kashmir`s Kulgam district,
75 kms from here.
Tarigami said a serious and time-bound approach needs to
be adopted for giving practical shape to the eight-point
programme announced by the Centre last year to address the
grievances of the people and make a headway in settling the
issues in Kashmir.

"Any laxity in implementing the eight-point programme
and other recommendations could rejuvenate the unrest and
political uncertainty in the state and lead to disgust among
the youth, who see their future as bleak," he said.
Tarigami said it is the obligation of the state
government to implement every recommendation and suggestions
made by the interlocutors so far to address the grievances and
restore confidence building among the people of the state.

He said political considerations should not come in
the way of addressing people`s aspirations and concerns.

The CPI-M leader said interlocutors, with the mandate of
the Central Government to make recommendations, have done a
fair job and implementation was the prerogative of the state
government.

Lauding the announcement of employment package under
technical courses for the youth of the state, he demanded that
its implementation be fast tracked.

Tarigami said there is a need to make mass recruitment
of the educated youth of the state in the Central government
departments.
