Continued militant attacks in Kashmir unfortunate: J&K Cong
Jammu, Jun 02: The Jammu and Kashmir unit of Congress today termed “unfortunate” the continued attacks by militants in Kashmir despite a halt in anti-militancy operations by government forces during the ongoing holy month of Ramazan.
It also criticised “political interests” who fail to recognise the sacrifices of the forces and solely target them to please “radical sections” in the Valley.
In a statement, Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma condemned the attacks by militant groups and termed them “very unfortunate”.
“JKPCC expresses grave concern over the continued attacks in Kashmir during the ongoing halt of operations by the forces announced by the central government during the holy month of Ramazan,” Sharma said.
He said the Army and other security forces are facing a “difficult situation as they are caught between devil and deep sea”.
However, he lauded the forces for exercising “maximum restraint while obeying the command of the government” during the holy month and said “their sacrifices and hardship in this typical situation must be duly recorded and highly regarded”.
Without identifying anyone but apparently referring to former chief minister Omar Abdullah’s tweet on the killing of a youth during protests in Srinagar yesterday, the Congress leader said some “vested political interests who fail to recognise the sacrifices of the forces are solely targeting them to please certain radical sections in the valley.”
