IAS officers hold secret parleys with Sangarsh Samiti
SAGHIR REPORT FALLOUT
Jammu, Jan 10: In an apparent move to launch a fresh agitation against Justice Saghir panel report, two senior Indian Administrative Service officers reportedly had a closed door meeting with members of Shri Amarnath Yatra Sangarsh Samiti (SAYSS), which spearheaded more than two months long agitation on Amarnath land row, in Jammu.
Well informed sources told Greater Kashmir that senior office bearers of SAYSS met at the private residence of one its members in posh Gandhi Nagar area recently in presence of two senior IAS officers, who are believed to have close association with the Samiti and were even accused of being instrumental in triggering the agitation on Amarnath land row.
Though the agenda of the meeting was not known, sources said that there was likelihood that the Samiti, which lost its credibility after a controversial deal with the government over use of land for Amarnath Yatra, was in a process to start a fresh agitation over the recommendations of Justice Saghir, who headed Fifth Working Group constituted by the Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, on State-Centre relationships.
It was reliably learnt that presence of the two IAS officers in the meeting was not only unusual but even shocking for government and intelligence agencies.
The meeting, sources said, was attended by some top leaders of Samiti having close association with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP).
They said that the recommendations of Justice Saghir committee were being projected as anti-Jammu by various political parties especially Bhartiya Janta Party and Samiti was trying to lead the agitation over the issue.
Several political and social organizations in Jammu have already expressed their resentment over the recommendations of the committee.
