Mumbai: The Shiv Sena Monday questioned the government claim that “terror activities” have come down in Jammu and Kashmir and said militants were now killing soldiers to create fear among the youth in the Valley.
Referring to the killing of Territorial Army soldier Irfan Ahmed, the Sena said it is a “new technique” aimed at demoralising and creating fear among the Kashmiri youth.
The Sena said the brutal killings of soldiers was “a Pakistani game plan”.
“All this is the ‘Mann ki baat’ of Pakistanis. Will the person, who does his ‘Mann ki baat’ every (month on a) Sunday will realise this?” the Sena questioned, alluding to the radio programme hosted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
It also said that the release of Hafiz Saeed from detention in Pakistan may give a new lease of life to militancy in the border state. PTI
