Srinagar Sep 27 (Only Kashmir): The Mirwaiz Umar Farooq-led Hurriyat Conference Monday said the recent “administrative” measures announced by New Delhi regarding the Kashmir unrest were “disappointing” and asserted that it was aimed to provide relief to the beleaguered state government.“The measures are administrative in nature which seems to be put in place to provide relief to the beleaguered state government and deliberately shift focus from the actual issue to providing compensation and concessions to people,” Mirwaiz was as saying in a statement by a spokesman here.The spokesman said that despite the All Party Delegations visit to the valley and assessing the seriousness of the situation for themselves, the announcements made reflect “a lack of willingness to understand and address the basic issue”“It again shows India’s reluctance to address the political aspirations of the people of J&K for which they have been agitating for the past six decades and making all kinds of sacrifices,” the spokesman said.The Hurriyat Conference, the spokesman said, had given certain suggestions to the Government of India for the initiation of a process of meaningful engagement between the three concerned parties— people of Kashmir, India and Pakistan— for the resolution of the Kashmir issue. “These suggestions are imperative in order to provide relief to the people on ground and build an atmosphere of trust, free of coercion and intimidation. But to our dismay there has been no progress on this account,” said the spokesman.
Earlier, the spokesman said the Hurriyat faction’s executive meeting scheduled for today could not take place due to the continuous house arrest of its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and the strict curfew restrictions imposed by the government. “However a tele-conference meeting was held between the various executive members and it was reiterated that it is only the resolution of the Kashmir issue and not any political or economic concessions that can bring lasting peace and stability in Kashmir as well as in the entire region.”Syed Ali Shah led Hurriyat Conference has already rejected the package by New Delhi as “eyewash.”
