Due to Army, people in J&K sleep fearlessly: Harsh Dev

JAMMU :  Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) MLA Harsh Dev Singh today said it is only due to the  Army that people sleep fearlessly especially, in the  bordering belts of the state.
“It is unfortunate that if a particular person commits  wrong, entire Army is being blamed,” Mr Singh said while participating in a discussion on Baramulla incident in the  state Assembly here.
Mr Singh’s statement came in the backdrop of an FIR registered against the Army in Baramulla firing incident in which a youth  was killed and four people were injured.
“It is the Army that normalised situation in the state and maintained law and order,” he said, adding that they are fighting proxy war against Pakistan.
“It is Army that provided assistance to the people and raised temporary infrastructure during 2005 earthquake in the state after civil administration failed to handle the situation,” he said, adding that, “if a particular person commits mistake, entire Army cannot be blamed.”
Army has it own Act and Law and the culprit can be punished accordingly by the Army.
The JKNPP leader also asked legislators to withdraw their security and see how safe they were in the state.
The discussion will bring out no results, he said and also opposed revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act(AFSPA) from the state.
Mr Singh also termed killing of the two IRP jawans as human right violations and demanded job and relief to their families. (AGENCIES)
