Srinagar, Sept 26: While expressing deep concern over the rising incidents of mysterious braid chopping in Kulgam district and few other areas of the state, CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Tuesday condemned these incidents and urged administration to gear up for the challenge as mere assurances won’t help.
In a statement issued here today he said, “These incidents have created panic among the people at a time when harvesting season is in full swing. This can also affect the ongoing fruit exports to different parts of the country. Administration must gear up itself to book these anti-social elements. Mere assurances won’t help as these incidents are repeated with greater frequency. People in these areas are terrified and administration must take tangible steps to restore the confidence of the people.”
“Community leaders, village elders and others must remain vigilant to expose these elements. People from all walks of life need to share the responsibility in identifying these anti-social elements,” he added.
