Jammu Tawi, April 25
The workers of Dogra Front & Shiv Sena took out a protest in Jammu city against the savage behavior of the stone palters in Kashmir against the defense forces and the support of the Hurriyat.
The protesters raising slogans against the separatists and stone palters said in view of the coming Amarnath Yatra the Government should take stringent measures for smooth conduct of yatra in the Valley and stone palters be dealt seriously. They said they will not tolerate any interference with holy Amarnath Yatra.
The protesters while warning the Government said that the increasing stone pelting incidents will be demoralizing for the security forces and demanded that they be given the full powers to deal with the stone palters and separatists. Stone palters in the Valley should be treated as Jihadi Aides and should be subject to action. “Those who obstruct the operations during encounters and aren’t supportive should be treated as over ground workers of terrorists.
The incident of violence against the Kashmiri students in the entire country is condemnable, but the incidents of violence which is taking place against the defense forces.
Petrol bomb attacks on security personnel at encounter sites have increased in the last few months thereby providing an opportunity for terrorists to escape.
Last month, at least three terrorists managed to escape from the encounter site during the confusion caused by the stone pelting crowds. Figures indicate that at least 25 terrorists evaded capture in 12 encounters in the last eight-nine months when the security forces were forced to fight a two-pronged battle with crowds and terrorists. The meet was called under the president ship of Ashok Gupta.
The party workers who were preset atheist time of protest were Roop Lal, Bua Ditta, Sham, Arjun, Gidhari, Anil, Sunil, Chaman Lal, Sunny, Bantu, Nikku, Ram Paul, Abhishek and various others were present.
