Jammu, 13-06-2018: Dubbing Pakistan as a threat to the peace in South Asian region in the backdrop of the heavy shelling and firing from across the LoC and IB in the recent past particularly in Chamliyal during which one officer and four Jawans were martyred, dozens of Panthers party activists staged a massive demonstration spearheaded by Mr. Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and Former Minister against persistent Pak misadventures in J&K at Exhibition Ground Jammu today. The angry protestors set ablaze the effigy of BJP for its stoic and timid silence against Pak’s persistent cease fire violations.
Addressing the media, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh lambasted Pakistan for its unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, mortars and missiles on borders to push militants into our territory to vitiate peace and harmony of the State and the Country. He said that Pakistan had not been mending ways as it had resorted to attacks on BSF as well as civilians living in the border hamlets despite several repeated assurances and flag marches to hold fire. Referring to the persistent Pak shelling and firing on IB and LoC, Mr. Singh said that Pak had repeatedly stabbed our nation at the back. He wondered that how could Union Government remain silent in the wake of Pak’s misadventures on Indian soil and persistent rabble rousing by its clerics and Army Generals against India which had only unveiled Pakistan being a terror exporting state.
Asserting that PM Modi must answer to the Nation on the terror trail of Pakistan vis- a-vis J&K, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh ridiculed the BJP over its muscle flexing while in opposition and questioned the Saffron Party that where had its jingoism of ‘beheading ten heads of the enemy in lieu of each martyred Indian Jawan’ vanished in the face of crisis created by Pakistan’s misadventures on IB and LoC. He said that JKNPP was constrained to lodge a protest as the BJP led NDA Government despite its tall rhetoric of ‘56 inches chest of PM Modi’ had meekly relinquished its responsibility of questioning the hostile nation over its violent posturing in an appropriate manner. Cautioning the rogue state to desist from playing blood bath, he exhorted the International community to take serious cognizance of Pak’s terror attack on Indian defense personnel. He urged the UN to impose sanctions on Pakistan and ostracize the rogue nation by declaring it as a “Terrorist State” without any delay. Having failed to restrain and check Pakistan from indulging in proxy war leading to massive death and destruction, Mr. Singh called it the biggest diplomatic failure of the Modi govt which made tall exaggerated claims on its foreign policy and international relations.
While accusing Pakistan for fomenting trouble in the State and elsewhere in the Country, Mr. Singh said that it had created dozens of terror groups in the name of ‘Jehad’ including JeM who were resorting to violence and terror attacks. He said that it’s high time that the Union Govt must give a blunt message to Pakistan that Jammu and Kashmir was an integral part of India and maintained that the Nation was now eagerly awaiting the tough posturing by Prime Minister Narendra Modi against Pakistani onslaughts as emphatically proclaimed by him on scores of occasions.
Prominent among those who led the protest included Rajesh Padgotra, Parshotam Parihar, Nirmal Kishore, Rajeshwar Singh Sambyal, Khajoor Singh, Mohinder Singh, Rohit Sharma, Rashpaul Singh, Rakesh Verma, Ashok Chouhan, Sunny Singh besides others.
