India grilled for adopting biased approach to flood victims

ISLAMABAD: The Jammu and Kashmir Peoples’ Movement (JKPM), a constituent of the All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC), has castigating India and its authorities for doing nothing practical for the flood victims of “occupied” Kashmir.

APHC leader and JKPM senior vice Chairman, Mir Shahid Saleem, while addressing the party workers and flood victims near a relief camp in Surankot said that New Delhi was not allowing international relief to enter “Indian occupied” Kashmir, leaving the devastated people the mercy of circumstances, KMS reported.

He said owing to India’s biased approach towards Kashmir, it had not yet declared the territory as natural disaster.

He deplored that after passage of a month India had miserably failed to announce a relief and rehabilitation package for over two million flood affectees.

It has already been established beyond doubt that India has always been discriminating against the people of Jammu and Kashmir when it comes to human rights, civil liberties and other democratic rights of the people, he added.
