J&K BJP chief snubs LG, says no rehab for militants, bullet only policy for them
Jammu: President of the BJP unit in Jammu and Kashmir Ravinder Raina said on Wednesday that “there can never be any rehabilitation policy” for the militants and that “they will be paid back in the same coin.”
Raina was reacting to Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha’s recent appeal to local militants to shun the path of violence. He had also promised to help them with jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities.
“A militant is a militant. This Pakistan-sponsored militancy has bled Jammu and Kashmir for the past 30 years. They (militants) go to Pakistan for arms training, come back with arms and ammunition and then kill innocent people and security forces personnel. They can never be given any jobs. The only policy for them is a bullet,” he said.
“Our jawans of army, police and paramilitary forces are combating them 24×7. These militants are getting killed. Under PM Modi’s government there can never be any rehabilitation for militants in this country,” he asserted.
“Whosoever picks up a gun against the nation will be eliminated,” he added.
On the selection list of the Fire and Emergency Services department, Raina said that the list has several irregularities and was discriminatory.
“I have brought the matter to the notice of the LG and urged him to quash this list and conduct the recruitment process afresh. Graduate and post-graduates have been excluded while 8th and 10th pass candidates have been selected. There is strong resentment among the youth of Kashmir as well. It is a big scam, and a probe should be ordered,” he said. Raina said that if the list was not revoked then BJP will approach the court of law for an interim stay on it and then get it quashed.
