Early Times Report
JAMMU, June 14: Taranjit Singh Tony, General Secretary of J&K Pradesh Congress Committee and DDC Suchetgarh, strongly condemned the recent spate of terror attacks in the Jammu region. He emphasized that these acts of terror must not derail the democratic process in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
Speaking at the meeting held here today, Tony said "Such cowardly acts of terror should not become a hindrance in the upcoming election process in Jammu and Kashmir. Any disruption caused by these incidents would only serve as an excuse for the government to delay the crucial Assembly elections."
Expressing grave concern over the prevailing situation, Tony highlighted the disillusionment among the people of Jammu and Kashmir towards the present government. "The present dispensation has miserably failed to meet the expectations of the general public. The people of Jammu and Kashmir are tired of broken promises and ineffective governance," he said.
Tony appealed to the Lt Governor to ensure the safety and security of all citizens, particularly in the face of escalating tensions. "It is imperative that steps are taken to restore peace and normalcy in the region. The upcoming elections must proceed without any impediments, allowing the people of Jammu and Kashmir to exercise their democratic rights freely and fairly," he added.
Tony also appealed to the PM Modi for equitable treatment in compensation for victims of terror attacks and accidents. "There should be no differentiation in providing compensation to those who have lost their lives in terror attacks versus accidents," he stated. "Every life lost is precious and deserves equal respect and compensation."
Furthermore, Tony demanded a minimum compensation of Rs 1 crore for Martyrs who sacrifice their lives in service of the nation. "Our soldiers make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country. It is our duty to ensure that their families are adequately supported and compensated," he said and demanded that a designated officer should be appointed for the welfare of family members of Martyrs.
