Governor's administration puts cross LoC trade under scanner
'PDP- BJP regime compromised with national security to appease Pak stooges'

Early Times Report
Jammu, July 18: Dubious traders involved in the cross LoC trade are likely to face music as Governor N N Vohra has asked the officials to identify the traders whose track record is not clean.
The Governor Vohra while chairing a high level meeting to review issues relating to cross LoC trade passed strict instructions to the officials to filter out the elements who could pose a threat to security of the country.
An official said that when PDP-BJP regime was in power the security agencies had recommended that cross LoC trade should be called off till the situation improves. "Even the Ministry of Home Affairs had agreed to the proposal of calling of the cross LoC trade but the politicians who were at the helm did not allow it to happen due to political reasons," he added.
The official said that during the past three years police and other security agencies seized contraband substances and foiled the attempts to smuggle arms into the Valley. "This trade is not serving any purpose and has even promoted illegal money transactions. The government should give a free hand to the investigating agencies to look into the transactions which are carried out by the cross LoC traders. The trade being carried out on barter system seems to be a mere eyewash. There is more to what is meeting the eye," the official added.
The Governor Vohra while chairing the meeting directed Director General of Police and Principal Secretary Industries to urgently undertake complete verification of all traders engaged in LoC trade within one month and traders who do not furnish the required documents or have doubtful antecedents should be de-registered without delay.
An expert while talking to Early Times said, "Had PDP-BJP regime shown some interest towards streamlining this trade it would not have turned into a monster. It's unfortunate that the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party compromised with national interests just for the sake of power."
He said, "PDP leaders always created a notion that cross LoC trade is an important confidence building measure and it should not be brought under scanner. The separatists and other anti-national elements took full advantage of the soft policy followed by the erstwhile regime and carried out their nefarious activities without any fear of law."
A Kashmir watcher said, "The PDP-BJP regime ignored the major issues during its tenure and messed up the entire state. Governor's administration would have to take major steps to undo the wrongs which were committed by the previous government."
