The PDF president and minister for transport Hakim Yaseen on Friday while demanding immediate revocation of the order said, "If at this crucial juncture the state governor and chairman SASB and the chief minister do not take immediate steps for revocation the order, the situation in the state will spin out of control and no political leader will be able to give answer to the nation. Hakim
, according DFP statement, said the cabinet decision on transfer of forest land had given rise to the ongoing explosive situation in the state and it had the potential to snowball into a volcanic blast if the order was not immediately withdrawn.In an indirect reference to the National Conference, Hakim
said everyone knew it well who laid the foundation of this issue and who took it to its completion."The question is not who caused the fire but the question here is how to put it out," he
warned that the politicians should not link the issue with elections and use situation for making electoral gains. Hakim
appealed to the government, all the political parties, religious and social organizations and the media to play a positive role at this crucial juncture to maintain age old traditional religious tolerance and amity and save the situation from going out of control. Expressing profound grief and sorrow over the loss of life during the last five days in police action, Hakim appealed to the chief minister for investigation and issuance of orders for exgratia relief to the families of deceased.
