Kashmir governor must keep watch on situation: Congress

New Delhi : Terming the conditions in Jammu and Kashmir volatile, the Congress on Friday said that it was “imperative for the governor to keep a close watch on the situation”.

“Ever since PDP-BJP government has taken over, incidents are taking place which clearly demonstrate that the government is not in control of the situation. As Jammu and Kashmir is a frontline border state, it is imperative that the governor keeps a close watch on the situation,” party spokesperson Manish Tewari said at a press conference here.

“Since it is beginning of the summer and already the way situation turns out to be, it seems to be at least volatile if not anarchic. Keeping in view the totality of situation, we would like to stress and urge that there should be caution and circumspection and a very close watch on the situation be kept,” he added.

A civilian was killed and four others were injured on Friday allegedly in a firing by soldiers as angry residents clashed with secutiy forces and tried to storm their camp amid simmering anger over four similar deaths since Tuesday in tense but curfew-bound Kashmir Valley.
