NEW DELHI, Sep 19: Citing people dying in Jammu and Kashmir because of the act of terrorism, former chief minister Dr Farooq Abdullah on Saturday pressed for the government to start a dialogue with the neighbour alike the ongoing talks with China to find out some solution to the problem.
Speaking in the Lok Sabha on the situation in J&K no better, no progress, he sought quite a hefty compensation to families of three victims killed in Kashmir's Shopian in view of an Army inquiry finding "prima facie" that is men had violated powers under the Armed Forces Special Powers in an encounter.
Dr Abdullah also raised the issue of the plight of the Kashmiri children whose education has come to a standstill because of the government's policies.
Dr Abdullah on Saturday stepped inside the Parliament to attend the monsoon session after more than a year since the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 was abrogated on August 5, 2019. After the special status was lifted in Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019, the local leaders were put into pre-emptive detention.
During his address in Lok Sabha on Saturday, Farooq Abdullah urged India to hold talks with other neighbouring countries, just like it has been holding talks with China to resolve issues.
“Like we are talking to China to resolve issues, we need to hold talks with the other neighbour country as well. People are dying every day, border skirmishes are on a rise. We need to find some solution,” Dr Abdullah.
On Internet network restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir, Farooq Abdullah questioned how J&K was supposed to grow if people did not have access to 4G facilities while the rest of the country did.
“No progress is taking place in Jammu & Kashmir. People there do not have access to 4G facility, how are they going to grow in the present time when the rest of the country has access to every facility on the internet,” he said.
