Everyone not for peace: Omar
Sheeri (Baramulla) Jan 13: The Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said that people with vested interests wanted situation in the Valley to remain disturbed.
“Unfortunately everyone is not for the peace. There are certain elements in our society who do not want peace to prevail for their vested interests,” Omar said while addressing a passing out parade here in north Kashmir.
Referring to the police recruitment drive conducted held in old city on Wednesday, Omar said, “It was after 20-years that such a rally was held in the old city and 200 youths were recruited on the spot.”
Hoping that the police personnel passing out from Sheeri Training College would not only exercise minimum use of force while maintaining law and order but would also respect the Human Rights like a civilized force. “Police is an organized and disciplined force and has worked like a bridge between the government and the people during the recent unrest period in the valley,” he said.
He said Jammu and Kashmir Police is the only force in the country which has to fight on many fronts like militancy, stone pelting, traffic pressure and also against the crimes.
The Chief Minister said the situation in the valley was improving fast. “I also personally went to Zaina Kadal to inaugurate Shahi Hamdan Community Centre which is a positive step which was some years ago impossible,” Omar said.
‘MUMBAI POLICE ADVISORY SORTED OUT’
Chief Minister dismissed apprehensions about harassment of Kashmiri youth following a Mumbai police advisory and said it was only a specific alert.
"It was a specific alert about a specific information. There is no such order which will result in harassment of the Kashmiri youth," Omar told reporters on the sidelines of a function.
The Chief Minister said Jammu and Kashmir DGP Kuldeep Khoda has "sorted out the matter" with the police commissioner of Mumbai.
