Vested interests don't want end of militancy: BSP


SRINAGAR, May 20: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Sheikh Abdur Rehman has said that some people with vested interests do not want an end to the militancy because it suits them.

In a high level meeting of the party here, early this week, the BSP said that initiation of a dialogue on J&K can not prove fruitful unless all the parties from the state including minorities from all the regions besides representatives from PoK are not invited to a round table conference. He has decried the invitation to a section of parties in Kashmir.

Besides, the BSP has said that the ongoing unilateral cease-fire has not made any major difference on the ground level. Any one sided step will not succeed, it said. It has also expressed its concern over the massive violations of the human rights and has referred to various incidents across the state, the latest being the Magam.

The BSP has expressed its concern over the youth joining the militant ranks. Quoting Sheikh, a BSP statement said, the party wants immediate arrest of this trend and has observed the bad policies of state and the central government responsible for it.
