Jammu: Expressing grave concern over unabated killing of people on the borders, the Team Jammu today regretted that residents of Jammu region have became victim of the ‘political ceasefire’ announced by the BJP led NDA government at the Centre to keep coalition partner PDP and anti-India separatist groups of Kashmir Valley in good humour.
Addressing a meeting of the executive committee members of the Team Jammu to review situation on the borders, Chairman of Team Jammu Zorawar Singh Jamwal lamented on-going blood-bath on the borders of Jammu region has authenticated the allegation that BJP led government at the Centre has made this region as laboratory of its ‘political experiments’ to appease Kashmir centric groups, be it mainstreams parties or separatists groups, who preached secessionism.
“The way Jammu region has been ignored in taking important decision it appears that Centre has decided to conduct all its political experiment in this region by playing with lives and emotions of the people of Jammu”, Zorawar Singh Jamwal said and regretted that despite opposition by the Jammu people Union Government had announced unilateral and unconditional ceasefire for the holy month of Ramzan due to pressure from Kashmir Centric parties. “After announcement of unilateral ceasefire violence has been shifted in Southern region of Jammu as anti-national elements with the support of some Kashmir centric groups have divert their attention on Jammu”, he said and added that it was all due directions from the Union Government BSF deployed on the International Border (IB) was reportedly directed not to retaliate firing from Pakistani side.
“It is result of the unilateral ceasefire of BJP led Centre government that Pakistan has started shelling border areas of Jammu district because Rangers across the border were very much aware that hands of their counterparts in India have been tied by the political leadership”, he said and regretted that BJP led Union Government has crossed all limits of appeasement.
Pointing towards Thursday evening terror attack at Jammu Bus Stand, Zorawar Singh Jamwal said that this incident is an eye-opener for those who were in the forefront in demanding unilaterlal ceasefire in the month of Ramzan. “By announcing unilateral ceasefire Union Government has shown its weakness and this step has encouraged terrorists and their masterminds in Pakistan”, he said and added that those who propagated the idea of announcing ceasefire in the holy month of Ramzan were responsible for the killings on the borders as well as in the hinterlands.
