BJP opposes inquiry into youth killing in CRPF, police firing
Jammu, July 14: The Bharatiya Janata Party Wednesday described the issues discussed at the meeting as useful, saying that these need to be translated into action.
BJP president Shamsher Singh said his party expressed its disagreement over the decision of holding an independent inquiry into the killings of youth in CRPF and police firing.
“BJP discussed and supported all issues raised during the meeting barring the demand of inquiry into the death of youth in the Valley,” he told reporters after reaching Jammu.
He said while discussions on all other issues for finding a lasting solution to the prevailing situation were held in cordial manner, BJP’s stand on the proposal of holding an inquiry against forces charged with killing of the youth in the valley remained unchanged.
“We appreciate the security forces’ role in the valley and there is a deliberate attempt from the inimical forces to malign their credibility as the whole credit of bringing the situation under control goes to forces who are doing commendable job in most inhospitable conditions,” he added.
“Every time an impression is being given that security forces are violating human rights, but what about the human rights of the officers and the personnel of army and para-military forces, who are being targeted and killed by anti-national elements,” he asked.
“We opposed opinion expressed at the meet that those indulging in stone pelting and militant activities are frustrated and unemployed youth,” said Shamsher and added that there were more unemployed and frustrated youth in Jammu and Ladakh who do not resort to such practices.
The BJP also refused to admit the proposal moved by the state government to the Union government to announce a surrender policy for the youth who have crossed the border, undertaken arms and ammunition training to wage war against India. “No right thinking and nation loving person will endorse such policy and we, too, oppose it tooth and nail,” said Singh.
Over the non-participation of PDP and Panthers Party in the meet, BJP president said, such by staying away from such meets they worked towards disintegration of the state instead of its resurrection into hopeful conditions”
