"We express resentment against the Prime Minister for his failure to utter a word about KPs, the real victims of terrorism in Kashmir. We call upon all nationalist forces to show strong resentment against him," ASKPC president Ravinder Raina said during the organisation's meeting.

Referring to the Prime Minister's recent comment that the Kashmiri youth should carry laptops, not stones, Raina said Modi had failed to alleviate the concerns of Kashmiri Hindu youths.

Breaking his silence on the ongoing turmoil in Kashmir, Modi had, in Alirajpur district of Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday, advocated a path of "democracy and dialogue" to restore peace in the spirit of 'insaniyat (humanity), jamhuriyat (democracy) and Kashmiriyat'.

Reaching out to the people of the Valley which has witnessed the death of over 55 people in clashes and a record-breaking curfew in large parts, he said it was painful to see innocent youngsters, who should be holding laptops, books and cricket bats, "handed" stones and appealed to them for maintaining peace and harmony in the "heaven on earth".
