No need of AFSPA if people cooperate: IG CRPF
Bandipora, Dec 27: Inspector General of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) S S Sandhu Thursday said the need for laws like AFSPA won’t be felt in Jammu and Kashmir if the public keeps on supporting armed forces in future.
“Laws like AFSPA need not to be applied if armed forces continue to get the public support,” the IG said. Sandhu was talking to media persons after inaugurating a medical camp organized by 3rd battalion of CRPF at Mantrigam Bandipora.
“We need not to arrest or detain anybody, we have public support, and the surgical operations are being carried out due to the public support,” he said.
IG CRPF said the situation in the state was far better than what was in 1990 and militants were trying to revive the same situation with the support of neighboring country.
“It is the neighboring country which is falsely provoking people to disrupt the situation, in the same lines militants are trying to revive the 1990s situation in the state,” he said.
He said that public was coming forward with their grievances to the forces which indicated that situation was getting better in the state.
“Our aim is to make the people aware about the situation, we are projecting people’s problems to the administration,” he said, adding “Awareness of public is our aim, we are working on it and we are trying to get the public in the mainstream,” Sandhu said.
“CRPF and public have same goal, they (public) seek peaceful situation and CRPF makes way for peace,” he said.
“Lot of development has taken place in the state and people are coming forward now,” he said.
Commenting on the recent posters that appeared in Sopore, the IG said it was a hoax and some elements intended to harass the people.
