New Delhi, November 22
Dubbing Pakistan as a threat to the peace in South Asian region, a strong contingent of Panthers party activists today staged a demonstration spearheaded by Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and Yash Paul Kundal, State President Young Panthers against persistent Pak misadventures in J&K, near Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi today.
Addressing the media, Harsh Dev Singh lambasted Pakistan for its malicious and mischievous designs in sponsoring militant attacks on defence bases in J&K, fierce mortar shelling along the IB and LoC and aiding secessionists in Kashmir besides abetting terror attacks all over the country. He further accused Pakistan for pushing militants into our territory to vitiate peace and harmony of the State and the Country. Mr. Singh said that Pakistan’s notoriety had now assumed alarming proportions as PM Nawaz Sharief earlier without any fear announced to continue its support to secessionists and other disruptive forces in Kashmir.
Referring to the recent Pak shelling and firing on border, Singh divulged that on November 19th Pakistani troops resorted to heavy shelling using 120 mm and 82 mm mortars and firing with automatic weapons over two dozen Army posts and civilian locations at Nowshera, Sunderbani and Pallanwala along the LoC injuring two Jawans and a woman. Recalling a militant attack at Poonch two months ago which was foiled by a joint operation conducted by Army, Police and CRPF at Alla Pir area, he revealed that a huge quantity of Pak sponsored arms, ammunition and explosive material had been recovered during the search operations all along LoC which proved that Pakistan was hell bent to vitiate peace in Jammu region as well.
Yash Paul Kundal while accusing Pakistan for fomenting trouble in the State and the Country said that it had created dozens of terror groups in the name of ‘Jehad’ including JeM who were resorting to violence and terror attacks.
Prominent among those who led the protest included Sdr. Paramjeet Singh Marshall, Gagan Pratap Singh, Shyam Gorkha, Parshotam Parihar besides others.
