“The LG headed administration is unable to create an atmosphere of safety and security in the union territory. The latest killing of Sh. Sanjay Sharma a Kashmiri Pandit is a grim reminder of how common man in Kashmir is living under a constant threat to life.
condemns the state of absolute disorder in Jammu and Kashmir in absence of a responsible government,” .
NCP J& K  Coordinator Rakesh Sapru said in a statement.

Mr. Sharma a resident of Pulwama even had security posted for protection yet he was gunned down close to his house. On one hand defenceless civilian pandits continue to be a target of violence on other hand hundreds more under PM job scheme are being pressured to risk their lives by joining service in violence torn areas of Kashmi, he said, adding that the UT administration is unable to resolve the issue of Kashmiri Pandits engaged under PM Relief Package.
Sh. Sapru insisted that it was high time that a responsive government elected by the people is allowed to take charge in J&K.

In addition to this, he said, the youth of J&K were facing massive unemployment.

Sapru urged the Central Government to restore the Assembly and hold elections at the earliest so people can have a representative government in places which is sympathetic to the needs of the people of J&K.
