Home secy meets CM, reviews security situation
Srinagar, Mar 27: Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba, who concluded his two-day Jammu and Kashmir visit today, called on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti here to discuss the overall security situation in the state.
Gauba and Mehbooba held two meetings here and discussed the security and the law and order situation in the state, an official spokesman said.
Gauba, who arrived here yesterday, also met with top officers of the civil administration, the police, the CRPF and the BSF.
Sources in the government said that the Home Secretary also visited the Lethpora camp of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
State police chief and the Director General of the CRPF accompanied the Home Secretary during his visit to the CRPF complex.
The Home Secretary on Monday chaired a high-level security meeting in Srinagar, which was attended by senior officers of state police, army, paramilitary forces and those of state and central intelligence agencies.
Gauba also held a review meeting on the Prime Minister’s development package for Jammu and Kashmir.
The Home Secretary advised various implementing departments of the special developmental package to stick to deadlines in order to ensure the success of the package.
He noted with concern that the package had already jumped from Rs 80,068 crore when it was announced on November 07, 2015 to Rs 1 lakh crore in just two years because of overshooting of deadlines.
