Minister of state in PMO Dr Jitendra Singh said today lauded the security forces for neutralising five militants in Imam Sahib, Shopian a a fierce operation on Sunday.
Singh in a statement said the nation "is eternally indebted to the security forces, the Indian army, paramilitary forces and J&K Police, for the professional rectitude with which they are combating sponsored militancy in the Valley, at a grave and perpetual risk to their own lives."
Lashing out at habitual army "baiters", Singh said if they were "so much upset with the Indian security forces, then the least they can do is to surrender the personal security provided to them from the very same security personnel."
Without naming anybody, Singh said, the "supreme sacrifice" that the Indian army was making for Kashmir, cannot be appreciated by those "who only understand the language of Twitter or drawing room hand-outs."
Earlier, a delegation of Jammu Warehouse Association, led by its president Ratan Lal Mahajan and general secretary Deepak Gupta, called on Singh and discussed issues related to GST and other constraints.
Singh said the GST related issues raised by them were more of a procedural nature and these could be brought to the notice of GST Council which was always open to such inputs.
