Srinagar Oct 29 (Only Kashmir): A senior leader of the ruling National Conference today blamed the separatists for destroying the economic and financial conditions of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, by resorting to strikes and shutdowns.
“The politics of shutdowns has destroyed the economic and financial conditions of the people,” Member of Parliament and veteran NC leader Sharif-ud-din Shariq said here.
Shariq said people wanted to live a peaceful life, “but unfortunately some elements are trying to disturb peace and as such are causing damages worth crores of rupees to the people.” He said labourers, shopkeepers, transporters and other business class people have suffered severe economic losses.
“Shutdowns, stone-pelting and violence are not a solution to any issue but solution to all the issues lies in dialogue and discussions,” he said.
He said, “Unfortunately, our youth are being stopped from getting educated under a conspiracy. It is an attempt to keep the entire population illiterate as it was during the Dogra rule.” Shariq appealed to the Centre to intensify its efforts in solving the “Kashmir issue”.
“We make a strong appeal to the Centre to intensify its efforts to solve the Kashmir issue so that peaceful atmosphere is established in the sub-continent,” he said.
