NC, PDP ‘creating noise’; additional troops in J-K part of security drill: Jitendra

NEW DELHI: Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Monday said the deployment of an additional 10,000 security personnel in Jammu and Kashmir was part of a security drill and blamed the National Conference (NC) and the PDP for “creating noise” over it.

The Minister said “noise” is being created by the NC, the PDP and others as they can feel that they are losing the people’s mandate.

“The additional deployment is for security arrangement… They (the political parties) have been carrying forward their legacy with 8-10 per cent voter turnout. They are scared that if the situation changes their sovereignty built in the last 30-40 years will come to an end,” he told reporters here. (AGENCIES)
