9/24/2020 11:10:35 PM
EARLY TIMES REPORT

Srinagar, Sept 24: Lt Governor Manoj Sinha on Thursday strongly condemned the killing of Block Development Council (BDC) chairman Bhupinder Singh by unidentified gunmen in the central Kashmir district of Badgam Wednesday night.
Hours after Administration Council (AC), which met under the chairmanship of Lt Gov Sinha, approved to hold elections to 1,089 Sarpanch and 12,168 Panch positions in Jammu and Kashmir, gunmen shot dead Singh, BDC of Khag, near his house in Badgam last night. He had left his two Special Police Officers (PSOs) guard in a police station and left for his home alone. Meanwhile, former chief Minister Omar Abdullah and Apni Party president Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari have also condemned the killing of Singh and termed it highly unfortunate. Taking to micro blogging site Twitter, Mr Sinha said, "I strongly condemned the killing of BDC Chairman from Khag Budgam,Bhupinder Singh. My deepest sympathies to the bereaved family and pray for eternal peace to the departed soul". He further tweeted, "The heinous act is an attempt to spread fear and vitiate the atmosphere of peace and progress. There can be no justification for such attacks. The society does not have any space for perpetrators of violence and those involved in this cowardly act shall be brought to justice".
Advisor to Lt Governor, Baseer Ahmad Khan has also strongly condemned the brutal killing of BDC chairman Singh. Calling it a cowardly act, the Advisor said that those behind the killing are the enemies of humanity and will be brought to book. He said that every effort will be made in bringing the culprits to justice. The Advisor also expressed solidarity with the bereaved family members of Bhupinder Singh and prayed for eternal peace to the departed soul.
Vice-president of the National Conference (NC) Omar Abdullah in a tweet said, "Very sorry to hear about the assassination of BDC councillor Bhupinder Singh. Mainstream grassroots political workers are easy targets for militants & unfortunately in recent years the threat to them has only increased. My condolences to his family. May his soul rest in peace".
AP president and former minister Bukhari also condemned the killing of Singh and termed it termed it ''highly unfortunate, inhuman and barbaric''. ''Such acts of violence can never achieve anything except for bringing more miseries to the people,'' Bukhari remarked.
He said the use of guns on innocent civilians since 1990s have only brought death and destruction to J&K and have further pushed the people to a dead end. Bukhari said the recent spree of killings of Panchayat representatives in Kashmir is a dastardly act by the elements inimical to peace and prosperity of J&K.
''Violence in any of its form and manifestations will beget violence and this vicious cycle needs an end so that the people of J&K who have suffered a lot in the last many decades live in peace and harmony,'' Bukhari remarked.
Calling for a thorough review of security cover of political activists in J&K, Bukhari urged the union home minister to intervene into the matter and pass on some concrete orders in this regard. "Today's killing in Khag-Budgam has belied the claims of the government. The union minister should intervene into the matter and order a serious review and categorization of political activists who have put their lives at risk in order to keep the democratic process alive in J&K," he added.
