J&K enters new era with decline in militancy: Chugh


JAMMU, Jan 12: BJP National General Secretary Tarun Chugh today said that the J&K has entered a new era where people have started shunning guns and terrorism and have started looking for development and progress.
In a statement Chugh hailed the report of the Union Home ministry which said that militancy incidents in Jammu and Kashmir in 2020 decreased by 63.93 per cent compared to 2019. He said the improvement in law and order situation in the state was also reflected by the fact that there was also a decrease in fatalities of special forces personnel by 29.11 per cent and a decrease in casualties of civilians by 14.28 per cent in 2020 (up to November 15) as compared to the corresponding period a year earlier.
There has also been a drastic decrease in stone-pelting incidents in Kashmir with an 87.13 per cent dip recorded in 2020 compared to 2019 which clearly demonstrated that the youth of J&K has changed his mindset."The youth does not want to be misled by disruptive and divisive forces anymore and would rather focus on education and employment", he said.
Chugh said for many decades in the past the Abdullah and Mufti families kept playing cheap politics and deprived people of J&K of development and progress. Both the families deliberately misguided people and did not let the youth join the national mainstream. "A new era has dawned on J&K and it will bring smiles on the faces of the people", he added.
Meanwhile, Chugh welcomed framing of charges by the special CBI court against JKLF supremo Yaseen Malik and nine others in the 30-year-old Rubaiya Sayeed kidnapping case.
