People being killed in J&K, by terrorists, or by SFs: Cong demands debate in LS

JAMMU: Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Monday demanded a debate on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir in the Lok Sabha, saying innocent citizens were losing their lives in the valley, either at the hands of terrorists, or due to security forces’ mistakes.

Raising the matter as the House took up “issues of urgent public importance”, Chowdhury said, “Innocent civilians are losing lives in Jammu and Kashmir, and it is not stopping.”

“At times by the terrorists’ bullet, and at times due to the mistakes of the forces, innocent people are losing their lives.

“They had said in the House that after abrogation of Article 370, we will capture PoK, and Aksai Chin. But today, Pandits are being forced out of the valley, lists are being made by terrorists to eliminate Pandits,” Chowdhury said.

“We want a detailed discussion in Lok Sabha on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir,” the Congress leader said.
