IIOJK boiling with anger; don’t consider silence as normalcy, Tarigami tells Modi

Srinagar, April 26 (KMS): Communist Party of India Marxist (CPI-M) senior leader Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami has cautioned Modi-led fascist Indian government not to consider silence as normalcy and warned that anger is increasing in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing a press conference at his Gupkar residence in Srinagar, Tarigami said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made an appeasing statement for the youth, but questioned why several youth were put behind the bars ahead of his visit.

Modi “has made tall claims to appease the youth, but it won’t serve the cause as there is a need to change the ground situation. What matters for the youth is to provide them employment, ensure a free atmosphere for them and give them security,” he added.

“…the anger is increasing and don’t push them to the wall. Also, don’t consider silence as normalcy, he informed Modi”. He added that the Modi government is beating the drums with regard to the Panchayat Raj system here, but the fact is that it is nothing new in J&K as such a system was already in Jammu and Kashmir even before the Partition.
