Srinagar: Castigating the government for its ‘anti people’ policies, Hurriyat (M) Chairman and Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) chief, Mirwaiz Farooq Monday said that though the Hurriyat (M) is striving for the political resolution of Kashmir issue but it can’t remain mute spectator on the vows and agonies faced by the people because of the government’s indifferent attitude towards their problems.

Mirwaiz said that in these chilling days of winter people are being denied adequate ration, electricity, cooking gas and kerosene oil which clearly speaks of an anti people policy of the government.

He added during the past few days, a number of delegations visiting him, expressed concern over implementation of NFSA.
“Kashmiris were already facing political, economic and other problems and now the government is busy in creating more troubles and problems for the people,” the statement quoted Mirwaiz.
