Govt’s claims don’t match the overall situation/ normalcy on ground   –  Bhalla

Congress protests against terrorist attack on bus at Kanda, Dist. Reasi.

Jammu, June 10 : Congress today held a strong protest demonstration, against the rise of terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, especially in the areas which remains peaceful in the past.

JKPCC Working President Shri Raman Bhalla accompanied by other senior leaders led a strong protest at Shaheedi Chowk Jammu outside PCC HQ Jammu today. They were carrying play card in their hands amidst raising slogans like “Modi ji Ek Kaam Kro,Kursi Shodo Aaram Kro.”, “ Modi Sarkar Hai Hai”, “Pakistan Murda Bad” etc. They strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a bus en-route Shiv Khori to Katra in Reasi Dist. which resulted into loss of 10 precious lives and injuries to a about 42 people, mostly from UP and Delhi.

Raman Bhalla said that the militancy has revived while BJP Govt. is making false claims. The Govt. should take concrete steps to control militancy and save innocents. He said that such inhuman acts affects the normal lives of those who have nothing to do with these issues. He expressed sympathies with the bereaved families and prayed for early recovery of the injured.

He further said that the abrupt rise in terrorist attacks in the state is the result of the non-consistent defense policy of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre. He pointed out that the present government in-spite of making tall claims have failed to deter terrorist attacks from across the border. The present establishment must adopt a constructive, coherent and consistent policy for dealing with Pakistan.

Bhalla said the incidents of terror attacks continue and our army, security forces and police jawans are laying down their lives. It is not the number of terror incidents but the intensity of incidents and  the new strategy/ dimension of resorting to selective and targeted killings including Kashmir pandits and minorities creating fear amongst minorities and non local workers there, from other states.

Mr. Narinder Gupta, General Secretary(Org)  has  said that the militancy has revived in hitherto peaceful areas like Rajouri- Poonch, Reasi districts of Jammu , which were declared militancy free. He criticized Modi led NDA which failed to protect the lives of innocents, especially the pilgrims of Baba Bholenath and Mata Vaishno Devi Ji. The LG administration should take effective steps to stop the reoccurrence of such attacks, he added.
