Recurrence and unabated actions by terrorists against financial institutions and the Jammu and Kashmir Police, particularly in South Kashmir Districts is significantly alarming and posing a big challenge to the coming Amarnath Yatra. Though there might have been indepth deliberations over the security of yatra, the plans of the terrorists, as already pointed out by the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, to accelerate its activities of looting Banks for securing currency to use the same in days to come, poses a big threat, according to Seema Mahajan, President, Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, Women’s Wing.
Killing of 7 persons in Kulgam, including 5 Policemen guarding a Jammu and Kashmir Bank Cash Van and decamping away with their weapons is absolutely a well framed strategy on which the militant organizations seem to have been working, said Chetan Sharma, Convener of the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, Jammu and Kashmir. There is an urgent need to strengthen the security grid and sanitize the agencies involved in securing the yatra routes and the yatris.
Militants, as per reports targeted Ellaqai Dehati Bank twice taking away five lac sixty five thousand rupees and looted five weapons from the Guard personnel posted at District Court Complex Shopian to further strengthen their armoury and monetary holding, which obviously is to be used for causing disturbance in the times to come, said Seema Mahajan. Missing of a rifle in Rajouri and snatching of vehicles in Jammu come as a part of the elaborate plan of the militants and an eye opener. Possibility of militants having sneaked into the populated area past their infiltration should not be ruled out, Seema said. Though the Jammu and Kashmir Police is all alert and mobilizing its resources to locate and capture the offenders, threat looms large upon the people, the strategic formations and the national highway.
Having witnessed a lot, the Central Government continues to be indecisive over change of Guard in the State and hand over the reins to Governor so that there is a single channel of command under whom the Unified action to curb the militancy and anti-India acts could be initiated. Under the prevailing circumstances, when a coalition Government is in place, it will not be possible for the Governor to act on his own and take decisions, as per Hindu Mahasabha. The Mahasabha has emphatically called upon the Government of India to reconsider the emergent situation and take a call for imposition of Governor’s Rule in the State, if at all it does not want further complexities and blood-shed, in the hinterland as on the borders.
