Chouhan slams Centre for Kashmir situation
Bhopal, July 6 (UNI) Alleging that Hindus were being forced to migrate from Kashmir due to the spreading tentacles of terrorism, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said the UPA-led regime at the Centre was responsible for the state of affairs.
''Militant activity is increasing due to ill-designed policies and innocents are being slain. If serious attempts are not made to check insurgency, the BJP, BJYM and other wings will spearhead a movement to dislodge the UPA government,'' he said here while addressing a BJYM human chain to mark the birth anniversary of Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, as per an official release.
Pointing out that supply of weapons, by Pakistan, and infiltrators disrupted peace in the valley, Mr Chouhan added that every citizen should resolve to safeguard the nation's integrity.
''Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain with it,'' he emphasised.
Holding the UPA dispensation responsible for inflation, the chief minister claimed that price hike was never an issue during Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee's premiership.
''Today, petrol, diesel, grain, fruits and vegetables have swung out of the common man's reach. Abolition of POTA -- by the Congress -- without a suitable alternative mechanism, is dangerous,'' he felt.
Condemning the increasing terrorism, state BJP President Satyanarayan Jatia urged the UPA regime to make sincere efforts for peace, the release added.
