Rajya Sabha MPs demand to end use of pellet guns in Kashmir



New Delhi: With this couplet, the Indian parliamentarians demanded to end the usage of Pellet guns in Kashmir which has claimed eye sight of more than 100 people. It was also suggested to initiate dialogue with Kasmhmiris as merely making statements is not enough.

On the request of Congress MP Ghulam Nabi Azad a special discussion on ongoing unrest in Jammu and Kashmir has been started in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

During his speech, Samajwadi Party (SP) MP Ram Gopal Yadav demanded that pellet guns should be banned in Kashmir as it will only increase the number of injured.
“I read a survey where 75 per cent Kashmiris don’t want Indian interference in the state. To tackle this, we need to strike the source of Poison (Pakistan) and trust should be build in Kashmiri youths that India wants development,” he said.

Quiz master and MP All India Trinamool Congress Derek O Brien lambasted Pakistan for inciting the youths of Kashmir against India. He said Pakistan should see their internal issue and should not be allowed to interfere in our internal issues. Pakistan has no right to speak on Kashmir issue and it should not incite youth against the nation.

AITC MP said home ministry presented a data on death and injured due to pellet guns which shows that numbers are declining. Although the stats are not proper, the home ministry should consider to stop the usage of pellet guns in Kashmir. “An expert committee has been formed on pellet guns which will take two months to give recommendations. Two months is a long time, it should be shortened to two days in this era of technological advance,” he demanded.

Speaking on dead terrorist Burhan Wani, he said burhan wani was more dangerous on the Internet than on the streets, he was more dangerous dead than he was alive. Internet has provoked Kashmiris the most, but blocking Internet is not the only solution, there should be properly plan for gaining trust.

Janta Dal (United) Sharad Yadav said earlier too several issues like Khalistan, red corridor, etc. had taken place and the committee formed by the parliament had successfully tackled the issues. In the present Kashmir crisis, we all should come up with a proper solution to gain the confidence of the Kashmiri people that the government will protect and develop the state.
