Srinagar, Apr 29 ANI | 4 months ago

Strongly condemning the rampant arrests of youths and political leaders on the eve of election in Srinagar Parliamentary constituency tomorrow, the Communist Party of India (M) today said it was 'atrocious and undemocratic',


In a statement here this afternoon the CPI(M) state secretary Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami termed the arrests as atrocious and undemocratic.

He said such suppressive measures to contain dissent adds to the already existing levels of alienation among the people.

Mr Tarigami, while condemning the arrest spree, said under the garb of law and order it must be stopped and instead the youths be appealed to follow peaceful means to express their concern for justice and democratic rights.

The CPI (M) leader regretted that instead of facilitating a genuine democratic space to the young people, voices of dissent, the administration was using such harsh measures to stifle the voice of people.

He said by digging old graves and reopening old cases against youth means the administration is not serious to learn the lessons from past agitations that led to the loss of hundreds of precious lives and incapacitated dozens in valley.

Using force and arrest as tool to silence the dissent will surely prove detrimental results in future, Mr Tarigami said while urging the authorities to review its policies and release the youth and political leaders without any delay.

Islami Tanzeem Azadi chief Abdul Samad Inquilabi has also strongly condemned the arrests in the valley.
