Security forces working with larger degree of freedom in JK: Jitendra Singh

Jammu and Kashmir will be back on track soon as the security forces are now acting more professionally with a larger degree of freedom, Union minister Jitendra Singh said today.

Tension prevailed in the Valley as six policemen died in terror attack in South Kashmir in the first week of May. Six civilians also lost their lives during the same period amid stone pelting by students.

"By the next couple of weeks, Jammu and Kashmir would be back on track. There has been such (disturbing) incidents in the past one or two days. But there are noticeable differences ...the para military forces are now acting more professionally with larger degree of freedom," Singh told reporters here.

The MoS, who is on a two-day visit to Jammu region, said "I am sure that sooner than later, things will return to normalcy and J&K will start moving ahead like the rest of the country."

The BJP leader also hit out at Pakistan for unleashing a reign of terror on the people of Gilgit-Baltistan region.
"It is condemnable that the government of Pakistan has unleashed the most inhuman oppression on the people of Gilgit-Baltistan," he said.

"The manner in which Pakistan is seeking to suppress its own subjects is also an eye opener for the entire world, and clearly establishes that Pakistan has emerged as the gravest form of human rights violator in this part of the world, particularly in Indian sub-continent.

"Not jut in Gilgit Baltistan and PoK, which are under its (Pakistan) illegal control, but under its legally occupied territories like Baluchistan also, Pakistan has been suppressing people," he said.

The Union minister further added, "India's concerns emanate not only from the human point of view, but also when the neighbourhood is on fire, it is the responsibility and duty of the Government of India and its security agencies to ensure that all these developments do not have a negative ramification in the region."
