In India, the Congress party has voiced its serious concern over the massive build-up of security forces in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement issued after a meeting of the party’s Kashmir Policy Planning Group, the Congress also expressed concern over widespread fear and apprehension among the people of Jammu and Kashmir about the government’s intentions of abolishing Article 35-A and Article 370.
It said that all these steps are creating an atmosphere of heightened insecurity and fear.
Congress Party urged the Centre to maintain the constitutional guarantees given to the state saying that the government should not take any decision that would precipitate a deep crisis.
The Congress party’s Kashmir Policy Planning Group, headed by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was formed in September 2017.
