A public army has been formed to fight stone-throwers and elements attacking jawans of Indian army and para-military forces in strife torn Kashmir valley .

Balyogi Arun Puri Chaitanya Maharaj, who has formed the Jan Sena, said 13,000 people had registered themselves and were ready to give a befitting reply to the stone throwers.

“I appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to permit the Sena to go to Kashmir and teach the separatist forces there a lesson,” he said.

Arun Puri is head priest of the Siddhnath temple, a revered place in Kanpur’s Jajmau locality. He is meeting the saints in and around Kanpur with his plan for the valley. He held a meeting of saints in Jajmau in which he divulged that 100 youths of each civic ward have enrolled for Jan Sena in Kanpur.

There are 114 civic wards under the Kanpur Municipal Corporation. “They are being imparted training to tackle the wayward youths in Kashmir,” he said.

Arun Puri and other saints would meet the district magistrate on Wednesday with a formal letter to the PM and the President of India for allowing the JanSena march to Kashmir.

Asked how will he arrange accommodation and food for 13,000 people, he said he had enough disciples to take care of these two issues. “We aren’t asking the government anything in return but will appreciate if the volunteers are allowed to spend the nights in army camps,” Puri said.

He said he was in touch with other ‘sanyasis’ to raise the army at national level.
