RASANA (KATHUA), Jan 19: As people in thousands from all walks of life today assembled at the holy shrine of Baba Kaliveer Ji at Rassana, Kathua for their participation in the huge Bhandara and other religious ceremonies there, anger was also visible on their faces for Government failure in apprehending the conspirators of the 2018 Kathua conspiracy.
This was observed by the Chairman of IkkJutt Jammu, Advocate Ankur Sharma, who has been demanding CBI probe into Kathua conspiracy for punishing the real culprits.
He alleged that communal, anti-India and anti-Jammu forces desecrated the Shrine of Kaliveer as per a meticulously devised policy. “The desecration outraged the sensitivities of crores of devotees of Baba Kaliveer. The almighty God avenged the desecration by bringing down the Mehbooba Government and also brought to the knees many others who within the establishment and outside had sided with her, followed by abrogation of Article 370 and 35-A,” he said.
Ankur Sharma said that now that the Special Investigating Team (SIT) of the Rassana Case is itself in the dock, it is the most opportune time to order CBI probe into the whole conspiracy so that the nation and the international community come to know that the motive behind the Kathua conspiracy. He expressed the hope that the Union Government would appreciate the sentiments of the people of Jammu province and assuage their hurt feelings by order CBI probe.
Prominent persons, who assembled at the holy shrine of Baba Kaliveer, included Ex MLA Kathua Charanjeet Singh; BDC Chairmen of Hiranagar and Ghagwal namely R Kalia and Vijay Tagotra; Sarpanches of all the neighbouring Panchayats; Kant Kumar; Prof Hari Om; Ajaat Jamwal; Ashwani Sharma; Vinod Sharma; Harish Kapoor; Chandan Sharma and others.
