Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha on Wednesday said that anyone found to be part of Jammu and Kashmir’s “terror ecosystem” would face legal action and tracking such people was the primary duty of the police and security agencies. .
“Nobody will be spared if found supporting terrorism in any way,” Sinha told reporters here at an event on agriculture. He was asked whether action would be taken against politicians if they were found to be involved in supporting terrorism.
“The security forces are destroying the terror ecosystem,” he added.
Responding to a query about the nearly 200-day sit-in by migrant workers from Kashmir to Jammu after the target killings, the Govt said almost all the migrant Kashmiri Pandits who took up government posts in the valley under the Chief Minister. The package has been placed in a safe place at the various district headquarters, and there may be people who are working on some of the issues.
“We have a nodal officer who handles the complaints of migrant KPs. “All measures are being taken to solve their problems,” he said.
In response to another question about the authorities stopping the salaries of such workers, the LG said that no one is entitled to sit at home and receive salary or other benefits.
It should be remembered that they are specially recruited under the scheme and they are the employees of Kashmir Division. He said a committee headed by the Chief Secretary had been formed to look into their demands.
However, after his massacre of Kashmiri Pandits, migrant groups raised some alarm. “The administration has taken prompt action and resolved the issues faced by the minority public servants working under the Prime Minister’s portfolio,” the LG said.
Asked about the threat of terror over the opening of Israel-sponsored agricultural development centers in J&K, the LG said it receives calls from the J&K administration and the center about who will work, who will open offices and who will invest here.
When asked if the administration would allow Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra, which is set to enter J&K in January, he said the government believes in democratic principles and does not ban or block any movement or demonstration organized under such principles.
“As per the Covid protocol, we will see and monitor what the Covid-19 situation will be like in January,” he said, adding that only activities that go against India’s sovereignty will be banned and prohibited.
When asked by some media that the investment proposals were only on paper, LG said that it also learned through such reports.
“But the fact remains that Rs 100 crore, Rs 200 crore or even Rs 900 crore has been invested. Some areas that are being resolved are facing infrastructure issues. I assure you that the investment of Rs 70,000 crore will soon become a reality,” he said.
Talking about the G20 summit in J&K, Sinha said that one such meeting will be held in Srinagar and “we have asked for another meeting in Jammu but it has not been confirmed so far. It will be our endeavor to showcase a vibrant Jammu and Kashmir during the meeting. “
