Srinagar: Terming the statement of Army Chief General Bipin Rawat as ‘correct’, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday said that the Pakistan and pro-freedom leaders are instigating youth to join militant ranks.
Talking to reporters outside the assembly complex in Jammu, BJP MLA Ravinder Raina said that the Pakistan and pro-freedom element in Kashmir don’t want peace in the state and they are instigating youth to join the militant ranks.
The BJP MLA further stated that Pakistan is not only instigating the youth to join militant ranks but is training them and supplying arms like guns, grenade and other ammunitions to them as well.
“It is Pakistan and pro-freedom leaders in Kashmir who are responsible for the bloodshed there,” he said, adding that Pakistan wants to see more and more bloodshed in Kashmir.
He said that over one lakh people have been killed in Kashmir so far, for which Pakistan and pro-freedom leaders are responsible.
“250 militants were killed in the past year. Who provided arms and ammunition to them,” he said, adding that the militants after attacking Army camps, Police Stations, Police Posts, BSF camps and other forces camps must not expect silence from this side.
