Srinagar, Apr 30: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) on Monday expressed profound grief and sorrow over the civilian killing during the encounter at Drabgam in Pulwama and urged upon the people especially youth to maintain calm, as that the confrontation with the Forces invite trouble leading to the loss of the civilians, which has to be avoided in the larger interest of peace and stability.
The spokesman said that party also urged upon the forces to exercise restraint while dealing with militant related activities and ensure that civilians are not killed or injured, saying that both State and Centre have miserably failed to restore calm in the valley.
The Party Spokesperson while expressing grief over the civilian killing described the loss of civilians as the source of alienation among the people, blaming the ruling PDP BJP dispensation for the deteriorating situation in the valley.
The wrong policies adopted by PDP-BJP will remain the cause behind mass discontent and mistrust among the people, besides they have miserably failed to infuse trust and confidence among the youth, as a result, there is deep alienation among the people, he added.
He blamed both State and Centre Govt for failing to win the hearts of people, rather than creating a congenial atmosphere to infuse trust and confidence among the people.
