Jammu, January 02: Condemning the recent ‘Fidayeen attack’ on CRPF Training Centre at Letpora in South Kashmir besides the fast deteriorating situation in J&K, Panthers Party burnt effigy of BJP-PDP coalition Government.
Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP, Yash Paul Kundal State President Young Panthers and other leaders staged a strong protest demonstration at Exhibition Ground Jammu today. The infuriated protestors set ablaze the effigy of the State govt and sought immediate imposition of the Governor’s rule in the State to save it from further death and destruction.
Addressing the media, Harsh Dev Singh said that the terror attacks in the State had become a routine affair with no virtual sign of governance but anarchy all across the State. Eulogizing the courage and valour of the martyred brave hearts who foiled the nefarious attack of JeM militants at the CRPF Training Centre, he said that the security forces successfully eliminated the militants who had stormed into the camp and averted the possibility of a heavy casualty. Recalling similar ‘Fidayeen attack’ at District Police Lines Pulwama in August last year during which 8 security personnel were martyred and 5 had been injured, he said that the situation had deteriorated in J&K due to the coalition’s surrender to the dictates of secessionists in the valley. “Deadly terror attack on IAF Station at Pathankot in January 2016 by JeM militants, left 7 security personnel and 1 civilian killed besides 20 injured. Likewise, another fidayeen attack executed by JeM militants on Army Brigade HQ at Uri in Sept 2016 rocked the entire nation in which 17 soldiers were martyred and scores had sustained grievous injuries. Two months later, LeT militants attacked Army camp at Nagrota in November 2016 during which 7 soldiers were martyred but the State government failed to learn from its past mistakes as the security lapse had been a root cause of the fatal terror attacks recurring in regular intervals”, Harsh lamented.
Referring to the brutal terror attack on the bus of Amarnath yatris in Kashmir on July 10th last year which left 8 people killed and 18 people injured, Harsh Dev Singh said that such dastardly acts had exposed the anti-national and communal psyche of the secessionist forces and subversives who were hell bent to vitiate the peace and tranquility of the State.
Alleging total collapse of law and order with the State government failing to address the grievances of the people, Harsh Dev Singh said that the residents of forward hamlets faced the worst ever cross border firing in three years which had caused a huge loss of life, property, crops and cattle stock due to non provision of shelters at safer zones. He said that unemployment and underemployment had soared all time high in the State with Contractual lecturers, ReTs, NRHM workers, MGNREGA employees, etc. had been languishing and protesting in open for their genuine demands.
