Davinder-Singh

Arrest of J&K DSP Davinder Singh along with Hizabul terrorists, has shocked the nation. The State gallantry medal winner was a known face in anti-militancy operations.

With this development, the J&K Police and intelligence agencies would now be accused of a shoddy probe in Afzal Guru case. Afzal had alleged that Davinder tortured him and forced him to toe his line, but his allegations were dismissed without a probe.

Davinder Singh had been harboring terrorists in Kashmir Valley, but the intelligence agencies failed to get a hint about his activities. Senior Cops in J&K have a lot to answer here.

When I visited Kashmir Valley in 2013, there was no fear or apprehension. We had a great time without any trouble. People extended full support to us, but called themselves Kashmiris and us Indians. We did not mind. They termed all politicians as opportunists and showed no soft corner for separatists leaders like Syed Ali Shah Geelani. They were indeed worried about the rise of Narendra Modi in national politics.

A lot of water has flowed since then. We are in 2016. It’s Modi Era in India. Mufti Sa’ab died and Mehbooba Mufti has taken over. PDP-BJP alliance is ruling the state today.

Why there has been a rise in militancy in ‪Kashmir over the last two years? Why youths have chosen arms? Why locals openly backing terrorists? Is it not a failure of the Governments at both level?

We need to find a definite answer if we want to retain Kashmir. Bullets are meant for Terrorists, not for common people who are in lakhs, not hundreds or thousands.

Sajjad-LoneA day after BJP managed to roped in Ajatshatru Singh and Chaman Lal Gupta for Jammu & Kashmir Assembly polls, former separatist leader Sajjad Lone met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, fuelling speculations that he could support the party.

Jammu & Kashmir is going to polls on November 25. Lone, who leads the People’s Conference, had earlier announced that his party would contest the assembly polls. It is believed that he is ready to join hands with the BJP in J&K in a bid to counter PDP and National Conference.

BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav had recently met Lone in Srinagar. The outcome of the meeting was not revealed. But, it is believed that both leaders discussed a possible alliance in the state. Lone’s party has a strong base in 5 Assembly seats in Kashmir’s Kupwara district. Sajjad Lone is the son of the slain Hurriyat Conference leader Abdul Gani Lone.

Suresh-Prabhu-MinisterSignalling at a virtual end of ties between BJP and Shiv Sena at all levels, Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, who took oath as the Cabinet Minister today, quit the Sena membership and joined the BJP. He did so before taking oath as a Minister, it is learnt. Perhaps, that was the reason why Shiv Sena skipped the swearing-in and prevented Anil Desai from taking the oath.

Shiv Sena wanted two Cabinet ranks on its choice, but BJP had decided to give Cabinet rank to Prabhu and MoS rank to Anil Desai, who stayed at the airport and later returned to Mumbai. Lone Shiv Sena minister at the centre, Anant Geete may resign today to complete the formalities.

Suresh Prabhu, a Lok Sabha MP from Rajapur in Maharashtra, may quit his seat to get elected to Rajya Sabha on BJP ticket. He is an Indian Chartered Accountant & member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. During his stint at the Vajpayee government, he held various portfolios such as Industry, Environment and Forests, Fertilizers & Chemicals, Power, Heavy Industry and Public Enterprises.

Thanks to expertise in power related issues, the Narendra Modi government had appointed him as the head of a high-level panel on power revamp — Advisory Group for Integrated Development of Power, Coal and Renewable Energy. He may get the Railways portfolio, it is reported.

Ajatshatru-SinghIn another development, senior Congress leader Karan Singh’s son Ajatshatru Singh joined the BJP today. He was a Legislator of National Conference. Grandson of late Maharaja Hari Singh, the erstwhile ruler of Jammu and Kashmir, Ajatshatru is the Member of Legislative Council from Nagrota assembly constituency. The BJP has also taken back its its expelled senior leader Chaman Lal Gupta too boost its prospects in J&K polls.

Modi’s decision may also revive the BJP’s fortunes in J&K, which will go to polls later this year.

Earlier, Prime Minister had made an aerial survey of Kashmir soon after the floods and met with the government officials as well as Chief Minister Omar Abdullah. He had announced Rs 1,000 crore for rehabilitation of the state.

Tension gripped Srinagar’s Ramban and curfew was imposed in major towns of south and north parts in Jammu and Kashmir a day after four civilians were killed in alleged firing by the Border Security Forces (BSF). The death toll in the firing rose to six, while 25 others have been injured.

Ramban firingFresh protests erupted in Chenab Valley after two more succumbed to their injuries on Friday. The annual Amarnath Yatra has been suspended following the tension in Kashmir. Chief Minister Omar Abdullah condemned the incident. Religious groups and separatists had called for protests against the incident across the Kashmir valley after Friday prayers.

The BSF troops on Thursday allegedly opened fire indiscriminately after a mob attacked their camp in Shaida Gool village of Ramban district, 145 km from Srinagar. According to locals, people were protesting the alleged desecration of a mosque and beating up of an Imam by some BSF personnel.

While the state government has ordered a magisterial enquiry into the incident, union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde has ordered a probe.

The violence erupted during holy Ramadan just three weeks after the locals protested Army’s alleged killing of two youths in Bandipore.
