Early Times Report
JAMMU, July 9: Rattan Lal Gupta, Provincial President of J&K National Conference, Jammu, has strongly condemned the recent terrorist attack on an army convoy in Machedi village, Kathua district, which resulted in the martyrdom of 5 soldiers and injuries to 5 others. Expressing profound sorrow over the tragic incident, he voiced deep concern about the escalating terrorism in the Jammu region.
In a statement issued here today, the senior NC leader criticized the BJP government for its failure to effectively control the deteriorating security situation, pointing to multiple recent terrorist incidents across the Jammu region in the past few weeks. He emphasized the urgency of addressing these incidents and ensuring public safety amidst growing fear and insecurity among the population.
"In recent weeks, nearly four major terrorist attacks have been reported in the Jammu region, including ambushes on pilgrims' buses in Reasi, terrorist strikes in Hiranagar village, Gandoh area of Doda district and Basantgarh area in Udhampur District, and the yesterday's attack in Machedi village, Kathua," he stated. "We cannot afford to lose the lives of our brave soldiers due to the government's inability to curb terrorism."
Rattan Lal Gupta argued that recent terror attacks refute the government's claims of ending terrorism in J&K, asserting that the surge in incidents is alarming. He criticized the administration for rhetoric without concrete action, urging a reassessment of security strategies. He underscored the need for stronger coordination among security agencies and better support for personnel on the ground.
Drawing a comparison with the NC's previous administration headed by the former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, the senior NC leader noted that terrorism was at its lowest, contrasting it with the current administration's handling, which he blamed for escalating violence and insecurity in the region. He called for immediate measures to fortify intelligence networks and ensure public safety as essential priorities for the government.
