Lok Sabha today passed a resolution to express serious concern over prolonged curfew, violence and loss of lives in Kashmir Valley, ahead of all party meet on the issue.
The Kashmir unrest today entered day 35 and has claimed 56 lives while leaving over 6000 injured including several para-military and police personnel.
According to reports, the lower house passed the resolution “to restore confidence of Kashmir youth”.
Meanwhile, the all party meet to evolve consensus on ways and means to deal with ongoing unrest in the Kashmir valley started in the parliament. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is chairing the meeting.
This is the first all party meeting on Kashmir after 2010 unrest in the Valley, which had led to appointment of three-member Interlocutors on J&K including Dileep Padgaonkar, Prof Radha Kumar and MM Ansari though their report never saw light of the day.
The meeting is being held on last day of Monsoon session of the parliament.
