Congress leader Vivek Tankha, who himself is a Kashmiri Pandit, on Friday questioned the government’s inability to stop targeted killings and the movement of Pandits out of the Valley.
Addressing a press conference, Tankha said, “The government should ensure there should be no killing now and everyone should feel safe.”
He alleged that the government offices were not safe and the terrorist were targeting the officials. “The gory pictures of people leaving the valley, which have come out, are scary,” he said.
Advising the government to take into confidence all the stakeholders, the Congress leader said that in 1990, “We were caught unawares, but now the government must act.”
