Well governed state only guarantee against militancy: S.S.Bijral

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti assertion that ‘militancy won’t end by killing militants, need human approach’ is virtual statement of truth but viewing globally established fact that ‘well governed state is the only guarantee against militancy’, it calls for a careful reading.
Addressing police recruits attestation cum passing out parade at Police Training School Kathua, S.S.Bijral former IGP said CM’s message of ‘humane approach’ was meant for security forces boasting of killing 200 militants in 2017. Pointing out that militancy in Kashmir, less local and more of foreign mercenaries, is terrorism least bothered about life of locals, Bijral said they deserve response they are receiving. He said marked change in ground situation could not have been possible without locals helping security forces and pointed determination of forces at rendering state borders inviolable. Let there be no laxity in the resolve to end terrorism.
Bijral BJP state spokesperson said humane approach is hall mark of well governed state. For having trusted elected representatives for their welfare, people resolve to extend unflinching support to govt. But their dreams of being in well governed state proved a mirage after 1975. In 41 years since 1975 state reeled under ‘governor’s rule’ seven times. Congress dethroned Farooq Abdullah govt and installed NC defected Ghulam Mohd Shah, Farooq’s brother in law and twelve other MLAs, sowed the destabilisation seed. Dismissed by Governor Jagmohan on March 19, 1986 for being corrupt, National Conference and Congress under Rajiv Gandhi PM rigged state elections to keep Muslim United Front out of power, installed NC Farooq Abdullah as CM, gave birth to ongoing militancy and corruption.
Bijral lamenting terrorism raising head time and again in France, Belgium, Germany, UK, Spain and numerous other European countries and worst in America in Sept.11, 2001 has not taken roots there, why it is deepening in J&K. This he said is when CM Mehbooba Mufti admits Kashmir valley 95% population is peace loving. Those countries are well governed and incorrupt while J&K the most corrupt Indian state with governance leaving lot to be desired, Bijral said emphatically ‘rid of corruption and good governance assured, no reason for terrorism not to end in J&K’.
