Jammu, June 05 (Scoop News) – The former Union Minister & the leader of the BJP Legislators Party, Prof. Chamnan Lal Gupta said that on basis of his personal experience it can be claimed that the Indian Army is best of the belt force than any other country in all respects including the valour as also in having great regard for Human Rights. But the campaign launched in Kashmir is politically motivated and certain leaders are raising the boggy of violation of Human Rights is designed to achieve something which they could not attain by raising slogans of plebiscite, autonomy, self-rule and what not.
He said that a strange situation has been created that certain secessionist and semi-secessionists level charges against the officers and the cops of the forces. Without holding any inquiry and finding out the facts the men in authority including the Chief Minister as also the Pradesh President of the Congress come out with the hasty statements that the guilty would not be spared. More astounding is the approach of the central government leaders that even the Defence Minister quite often too, come out with similar uncalled for statements which lend support to the accusing minds and thus provide encouragement to the perpetrators of falsehood and operating with motives.
BJP leader said that men in power at the centre are forgetting that Pakistan has launched a proxy war and the enemy has also been about to penetrate on our soil, so much so, that certain elements willingly or unwillingly are getting tools to the hands of the operators of cross border terror.
He said if any officer or jawan commits any wrong, the rules and laws are there to proceed against them but it sounds strange that the whole issue of violation of Human Rights and their zero tolerance is being politicized. Thus, an impression is being created that there is something wrong with the forces and this give credence that Indian forces are behaving as alien in this part of the country.
The ex-servicemen listed their grievances against the state government including the imposition of VAT on canteens and depriving of other facilities which have been denied to them unlike other parts of the country.
The BJP leader assured that he would take up the matter with the concerned but it was an unfortunate situation that certain ruling leaders are having politically diseased mind.
He said that there is a need to mobilize the forces of nationalism in this state as also elsewhere in the country to expose the policies of government leaders providing encouragement to separatists, semi-separatists and moreso to the falsehood being created against the forces.
