Kashmir unrest: BJP in favour of holding dialogues with all stakeholders
J&K BJP on Thursday said it was in favour of holding dialogue with all the stakeholders under the ambit of the Indian constitution.
Jammu: J&K BJP on Thursday said it was in favour of holding dialogue with all the stakeholders under the ambit of the Indian constitution.
Hitting out at the forces for fomenting trouble in the Kashmir valley, it demanded a probe into the role of the people within and outside the state in triggering violent unrest after Hizbul Mujahideen 'commander' Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with security forces on July 8.
"Indian constitution is the only framework under which any dialogue can be initiated. Who ever wants to hold talks under its ambit, they are welcome," BJP state chief spokesman, Sunil Sethi told reporters here today.
He alleged that tweets by some people who wanted to take political advantage following the death of Wani created more trouble.
"There is a need to hold an enquiry and investigate their role in fomenting the unrest," Sethi said.
Alleging that prior to the killing of Wani attempts were being made to vitiate the atmosphere in Kashmir on several occasions, he said but Wani's killing proved a catalyst and forces inimical to peace took advantage of it.
"Situation was volatile and attempts were being made to vitiate the atmosphere on the issues of establishment of Sainik colony or separate colony for Kashmiri Pandits, but anti-national forces did not succeed. They, however, managed to vitiate the atmosphere over Wani's death," he said.
The BJP leader hailed the security forces for eliminating Wani, saying Wani who was a terrorist and had to be killed.
"Wani was recruiting more terrorists. He was dangerous and had to be killed. The security forces have done a wonderful job in eliminating him," he said.
On the issue of restoring peace in the Valley, Sethi said the ruling alliance partners in Jammu and Kashmir were on the same page to implement the Agenda of Alliance and both want to restore peace in the Kashmir valley at the earliest.
"We are hopeful that situation in Kashmir will improve very soon," he added.
