Visiting PM must address issues of Jammu region: Harsh

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, May 18: Strongly condemning the spurt in violence, especially on the borders after the announcement of ceasefire by the Government, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister Harsh Dev Singh has appealed the visiting Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address the issues of Jammu region and also review the decision of ceasefire during the month of Ramzan.
He said that the Pak sponsored militants as well as our hostile neighbour had proved that terrorism had no religion. And not only Pakistan had proved it by incessant firing and shelling from across the border but the Hurriyat and other terror outfits had also rejected the GoI’s move which was being used as a window of opportunity for escalation of violence on this side of the border, he added while addressing a press conference in Jammu today.
Urging upon the Prime Minister to withdraw the obnoxious order of ceasefire, Singh said that national interest should not be allowed to be sacrificed at the altar of power politics. He further urged upon the visiting PM to review the decision of amnesty to stone-pelters and the so called political prisoners who had proved to be the biggest threat to the security of the State. Reminding the PM of the tall assurances of zero tolerance against subversion and militancy given by him and his party leaders, Singh called for an end to appeasement policies pursued in Kashmir solely for political considerations.
Drawing the attention of the Prime Minister towards the ever growing bias during present regime against Jammu region which gave BJP all 25 seats, Singh sought his personal intervention in view of complete disregard for all concerns of its people whose distrust in Government exacerbated with each passing day. He also called for a firm commitment from PM during his visit for immediate deportation of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis from Jammu who posed a grave threat to security and demography of region.
Singh also sought the personal intervention of the PM for transfer of Rasana case to CBI,  address the pathetic plight of border dwellers and   settlement of all pending issues of PoJK migrants as well as West Pak Refugees.
