In a press conference yesterday, Rawat had said that social media and government schools in the state were spreading a “disinformation campaign” resulting in radicalisation of youth.
“The deep rooted and the massive alienation resulting in unprecedented unrest is in reality the outcome of the process of erosion of special status of J&K,” Kulgam MLA Tarigami said in a statement here.
“What General Rawat has said will only compound the alienation and uncertainty in the state. His remark is inappropriate,” he said
Rawat had also said that each classroom in government schools in J&K have a separate map of the state besides that of India, which sowed the seeds of thought of some kind of “separate identity” among the children.
