Simultaneously, there has been increase in militancy-related incidents in different parts of the state , which is also a disturbing situation for nationalist forces,said BJP President.
Accusing the government, especially the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, who heads the Unified Headquarters (UHQ), for its failure to curb spread of militant activities in an effective manner, the BJP Chief said that the government too is not taking firm action against the seccessionist and separatist elements, who are exploiting people against security forces on the human rights issues. Day in and day out people at the behest of the separatist elements come out in open streets alleging HR violations by security forces in
“Why government is lenient towards separatists and why it does not take action against them under the law of the land for spreading disaffection and hatred against the security forces and the country”, he asked. There are some vested elements in the government who are providing overt and covert support to such forces, he said adding such elements should be exposed in the interest of the security of the state and the country. He also appealed the people to remain vigilant and defeat all evil designs of anti-national and anti-social elements, who are making all efforts to demoralise the security forces in the state.
