Jammu, March 31

Tassaduq Mufti, son of late Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, has opened dialogue with the stone pelters in  south Kashmir   parliamentary constituency of  Anantnag  from where he is seeking election to Lok Sabha in a by- poll.

That a dialogue was underway  between  him and the stone pelteres in south Kashmir , the biggest epicenter of the stone throwing ,  came to light when  Tassaduq spoke to media on the sidelines of his interaction with the Kashmiri Pandit migrants who  can play a crucial role in these elections . Their votes count as the separatists’ poll boycott call has got a boost with the recent incidents of high-voltage violence and casualties in the Valley.

Chadoora on Tuesday showcased the dangers  that were  unfolding at the encounter sites. Three civilian protestors among the stone throwers  aiming to disrupt the anti—militancy operations . The deaths  transformed the Valley into a cauldron of anger and violence , while  the killing of  a militant  was seen  as a marginal story.

Tassaduq ,whose campaign has been badly affected by the incidents of violence, particularly stone throwing in the Valley still reeling under the overcast of the tragic incidents of 2016 when pellets  and stones left more than 90 people dead, said “ They  “ stone pelters were having their issues.” Though he did not elaborate on the issues, but it could be easily guessed that the boys involved in the death-inviting  stone throwing , were angry over the suffocating atmosphere  and  made more miserable by  “ nothing to do.” They want work. That is not there.

Tassaduq Mufti  who has been running his election campaign that “ my victory is not over  the lives  of the people ,” said he wanted to address their issues.

This is for the first time that any political figure has talked of talking to stone pelters.
