Dr Narinder lauded the Central Government’s CBMs

Dr. Narinder Singh State General Secretary BJP lauded the Union Ministry of Home Affairs headed by Rajnath Singh for likely announcement of a series of Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) for Jammu and Kashmir including complete reimbursement of compensation paid by the State Government on account of losses suffered during ceasefire violations by Pakistan army on Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB) and massive increase in relief paid to the kin of state policemen killed in action in militancy-related operations. He said this was long overdue. He also hailed the decision of Union Home Ministry in compensating the losses caused to movable and immovable properties of border area residents in shelling from across the border. The decision of the Union Home Ministry that the compensation amount should be given from the Security Related Expenditure (SRE) shows the empathy of the Central government. Dr. Singh opined that the residents of the international border need to be brought under the ambit of reservation, that is provided to 285 villages of Rajouri, Nowshera, Mendhar, Haveli, Kupwara and Akhnoor falling under the LoC as per the J&K Reservation Act 2004, as the people living on international border are similarly placed. For this, he urged the state government to bring necessary changes in J&K Reservation Act 2004.
