Without mincing words, Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Monday strongly supported Army Chief General Bipin Rawat’s recent assertion on Kashmir. Speaking exclusively to ANI here, Naidu questioned whether the people of the nation should sympathise with the security forces or with the stone-pelters.

“You also know who the stone-pelters are. Our neighbour (Pakistan) is providing funds to stone-pelters. They are funding the separatists as well. They are doing this in order to spread terrorism here. In order to improve the situation in Kashmir, what is necessary should be done. The same has been suggested by the Army Chief and I completely stand by his side,” Naidu told ANI.

Also Watch:

“I fail to understand those supporting stone-pelters. Is it right to sit silently when people are pelting stones at the Army. Whom should the people sympathise with, the nation and Army or stone-pelters?” he added. Army chief Rawat yesterday applauded Major Gogoi, and said such “innovative ways are required to counter the dirty war” underway in Kashmir.

Army chief Rawat yesterday came to the rescue of Major Gogoi, and said such “innovative ways are required to counter the dirty war” underway in Kashmir. Indicating his firm approach to counter the insurgency, Gen Rawat said Army would take steps, which would break the clutches of militancy in South Kashmir. Rawat added that the situation prevalent in Kashmir makes it mandatory for the Army to resort to tough measures.

Major Gogoi was in the spotlight after a video shot during the April 9 Srinagar Lok Sabha by-polls, posted on the social media, showed a man tied on the bonnet of an Army jeep in Jammu and Kashmir’s Badgam. The video went viral and sparked a major controversy, with one faction condemning the Army’s action while the other commended their ingenuity.

    NC, Separatists and Congress leaders are solely responsible for present large scale violence in J&K since these corrupt and anti-national leaders have utilized this state in last 70 years for grazing purposes. These leaders are living in foreign heavens(LONDON & OTHER PLACES) and are enjoying luxurious life by looting resources of state. This fact is well known in public domain and to all residents of state who should act decisively against these corrupt politicians who are responsible for unemployment, acute poverty and backwardness of valley.Why the present PDP govt is sitting idle and is not ARRESTING & SEIZING ETS of corrupt anti-national leaders who are responsible for current violence in J&K? This steps must be taken on top priority basis for speedier progress of J&K.

      Not one of those shouting from the rooftops about human rights being violated with "so called - human shields " being used by the security forces, have the slightest reservations about these same members of the security forces being openly decapitated, kidnapped and murdered. Are human rights a one way, no holds barred street ?
