Union Govt has surrendered before Mehbooba Mufti: Harsh

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 17: Disagreeing with the dangerous announcement of a unilateral ceasefire by the Ministry of Home Affairs, GoI during the current month, scores of Panther activists spearheaded by Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and Yash Paul Kundal State President Young Panthers staged a vociferous protest demonstration at Exhibition Ground today.
The agitated protestors while opposing the said declaration in the backdrop of encounters and civilian killings in Kashmir, torched the effigy of the BJP for putting the life of the security personnel at risk in the valley. They accused the Saffron Party of appeasing Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti merely to keep the 'dirty alliance' intact in the State.
Lambasting the BJP led Central government for placating the separatists of the valley, Harsh Dev Singh said that it had been evident from the Saffron Party's incongruous stand over unilateral ceasefire that there was a dichotomy between MHA and MoD on the issue. "India's Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman only recently backed Gen. Bipin Rawat's stand that a unilateral ceasefire demanded by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was not a feasible option as the Indian Army had to "firmly handle" any terrorist activity that threatened the peace and harmony of the State.
All of a sudden yesterday, the Home Minister Rajnath Singh announcing one sided truce had raised eyebrows of the defence personnel besides billions of nationalist Indians who were feeling extremely demoralized and disparaged by the dangerous decision of the GoI. Its inability to snub the PDP's demand of unilateral ceasefire against the militants had proved that BJP could digest any muck for power", Harsh said.
Accusing the BJP of running with the hare and hunting with hound, Mr. Singh said that its duplicity and opportunist politics over the declaration of unilateral ceasefire had put the life of defence personnel in jeopardy and posed a serious threat to the peace and the national security. "Both the BJP and the PDP are partners in crime. Stalling counter insurgency operations were obnoxiously treacherous in nature which had corroborated the fact that greed for power knew no bars, no red lines", anguished Harsh said.
Endorsing the stand of Indian Army against the unilateral ceasefire, Harsh Dev Singh asked who would stand guarantee that there would be no attacks from the other side. He said that with no guarantors on a cessation of violence from the other side, the said decision of GoI would make the security forces cannon fodder for the militants and the berserk mobs in the valley.
Revealing the Army data, Singh said that NICO (Non Initiation of Combat Operations) announced by then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 2000 led to rise in the number of militant initiated strikes and civilian killings in the said truce.
He further elucidated that as per Indian Army reports, terrorists used the 2000 NICO to regroup and plan future operations in Kashmir. "Pakistan based JeM terrorists attacked the Indian Parliament on December 13, 2001 and prior to that, the same outfit attacked the J&K Assembly complex in Srinagar on October 1, 2001. India nearly went to war with Pakistan after the 2001 Parliament attack and May 2002 Kaluchak massacre. BJP seemed to have not learned from its past blunders and in view of the dangerous decision, the bloody history might repeat once again", highlighted Harsh.
