“The PDP-BJP government is squarely responsible for the sharp deterioration in the last 6 weeks, the statements of the Prime Minister, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar have fuelled the crisis” he said in a statement, the Wbsite said.
“Moderation in words and actions alone can retrieve the situation.
The loss of lives of protesting youth, other civilians and security forces has devastated all of us. This must stop, the former Indian minister added.
Situation in Indian held Kashmir had worsened after the killing of Burhan Wani on July 8.

at present, the Website said.
