Early Times Report
srinagar, June 19: Governor Satya Pal Malik today said that the situation in Kashmir has shown a significant improvement as the local militant recruitment has gone down.
The Governor said that stray incidents of violence are taking place even at places like United States of America, France and England.
"In our over six months' tenure, you can yourself see the difference as to how we tackled militancy in Kashmir. The previous regimes too had faced militancy and dealt with it, but in our tenure, the militancy infrastructure suffered a lot of damage," Governor Malik told reporters on the side-lines of a function to introduce motor bikes for traffic cops for regulating traffic in Srinagar district.
He said situation in Kashmir has changed a lot as tourists are coming here in large numbers without any fear. "I may have some threat or a fear but those coming as tourists are coming without any fear or threat and that too in large numbers. One of my friend who had come as a tourist here called me yesterday from Gulmarg saying over 25,000 tourists were present at the tourist spot," he said.
Governor said that situation on ground was very peaceful as local militant recruitment has gone down a large extent and the administration led by him will ensure that the menace of militancy is done away with from the Kashmir soil.
It would be in place to mention here that the militants carried out two major attacks in Anantnag on June 12 followed by IED at Arihal, Pulwama that saw the death of eight security forces personnel-five CRPF men, a police officer, and two soldiers. An army vehicle was also damaged extensively in the Pulwama IED attack.
Replying to a query that reports that Pakistan had shared intelligence inputs about the possible strikes by militants in Kashmir, the Governor said: "Pakistan is duty bound to share intelligence inputs with us. But it also remains to be seen that how many attacks they (Pakistan) was able to stop in its own country."
Malik said that to ensure peaceful conduct of forthcoming Amarnath yatra was a challenge to the State administration. He said that to ensure smooth conduct of Amarnath pilgrimage in the Valley will be a challenge to them.
"The situation in the Valley was very good. The militant recruitment as well as the stone pelting incidents especially on Fridays here has declined. Besides, two youth who had joined militant ranks have recently returned home. People have understood that this way will lead us nowhere," Governor said.
He further added that the rush of tourists in the Valley is mounting while as there was no threat to the tourists in Kashmir. Governor however said attacks are being carried out after receiving the directions from outside as they think the ground they feel defeat. "But, I assure you that we will resolve this issue very soon."
Malik however stated that smooth conduct of Amarnath Yatra is a challenge for the State administration. "I take it as a challenge. We will ensure safe Yatra and we will deal with the issues confronting very carefully," he said.
Referring to a query, Governor Malik said his administration has disrupted the militant infra. "You are well-informed about the tackling of militancy by previous regimes and our way of tackling the militancy," he said.
Meanwhile, 100 Motorbikes for Traffic Cops & MVD officials were inaugurated and flagged off by the Governor Malik for traffic regulation and to curb various traffic violations. The traffic cops riding the motor bikes, according to traffic officials, will make several rounds on important road links and ensure traffic violators are taken to task and the traffic regulated in a better and smooth way.
