Jammu, Feb 5 (PTI) Kashmiri Pandits today termed as"demoralising" the remarks made by Union Home Minister PChidambaram on granting more concessions to Kashmir.
"We express serious concern over the remarks made by theUnion Home Minister during his visit to Jammu and Kashmir,particularly in context of his statement to grant moreconcessions to the state," president of Panun Kashmir AshwaniKumar Chrungoo told reporters here.
Chidambaram''s statement that JK had acceded to India in"unique circumstances" and the state has a "unique problem"and requires a "unique solution" has created a number ofdoubts in the minds of those on the forefront of the struggleto protect national interests in the state, Chrungoo said.
Asking the state Congress leadership to be "innovative"in future for finding a political roadmap over Kashmir,Chidambaram during his visit to Jammu on Thursday had focusedon the process of organising a "broad response" to politicalaspects of Kashmir situation.
"Chidambaram is in the process of organising a broadresponse to the political aspect of the Kashmir situation,"state Congress Chief and MP Saifuddin Soz had said aftermeeting the home minister.
"These remarks have demoralising effect on thosestakeholders of the state who have treated accession of thestate as full, final and irrevocable," Chrungoo said.
The Panun Kashmir leader feared the review of AFSPA andthe proposed 25 per cent cut in the troops strength in thestate would only lead to increased incidences of terroristviolence.
