Srinagar: National Conference General Secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar on Wednesday said that unabated civilian killings prove that the present dispensation has learnt no lesson from the 2016 uprising.
“The civilian killings that go unabated in the Valley clearly indicate that the government has learnt no lesson from the last year’s (2016) unrest. I believe that the civilian killings were avoidable. The civilians must not be involved in the anti-militancy operations. The killings are bound to trigger protests in the Valley, “Sagar said.
He added that despite government’s tall claims, they haven’t been able to stop civilian killing which is further deteriorating the situation.
“One fails to understand that why government fails to stop civilian killings in the Valley. Despite their tall claims about bringing local militants back, civilian killings are still going on in the Valley,” NC General Secretary said.
Sagar, who is also the MLA of Khanyar said that unfortunate incidents like Chadoora killings has deepened the wedge between people and the government.
“The continuous civilian killings and other anti-people policies adopted by the incumbent government has resulted in alienation between government and people,” Sagar said.
