Jawans’ hands not tied during Ramzan: Rajnath

LUCKNOW: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today made clear that the security forces would act if there were terror attacks during Ramzan, the period during which the Centre has halted anti-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir.

             Asked about the continuing violence during the Ramzan “ceasefire”, Singh said the Centre had only announced a suspension of operations.

             “If there is a terrorist attack, the hands of the jawans are not tied,” he added.

             On his recent comment on the possibility of talks with Pakistan or the separatists for peace in Kashmir, he said the country has no aversion to dialogue. (AGENCIES)
