Aurangzeb Naqshbandi in New Delhi

From Hindustan Times: “Congress puts Omar government on notice

“Worried over the unending cycle of violence in Kashmir, the Congress has put the Omar Abdullah government on notice and is closely monitoring the emerging situation in the strife-torn valley. The party is also upset over the “handling of the situation” by the state government, which it said has ‘failed’ in breaking the current cycle of violence.”

“A senior Congress functionary pointed out that the state administration has also “failed in containing the influence of separatists whose writ runs large” across the Kashmir valley.”

“The separatists are calling the shots. They are virtually running a parallel administration. It’s a matter of serious concern,” he said.”

“Another senior leader said the state government appeared to be a “helpless spectator to the games” played by the separatist outfits.”

“He said the Hurriyat Conference faction, led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani, comes out with a weekly “calendar of protests” which is not only followed by the general public but the government employees as well.”

“According to the calendar, only Saturdays and Sundays are marked as working days and on the remaining days the people are advised to come out on streets and protest.”

“This calendar is strictly followed by all. Educational institutions, banks, government offices and private establishments all comply with the directions of the separatists and the state administration has failed to check that,” the leader said.”
