Activists of the National Panthers Student Union (NPSU) on Friday demonstrated a protest at the Dogra Chowk, Jammu, demanding immediate dismissal of chief minister, Omar Abdullah, who has become a 'security threat', which is evident from the fact that terrorists attacked for the second time in the last six months in the Kathua district.
The protestors led by NPSU state president Partap Singh burnt effigy of Omar and raised slogans against the state and the centre government.
Addressing the mediapersons on the occasion, Partap said that Omar's administration has connived with the terrorists to sabotage the peace.
"To facilitate the militants, the chief minister along with the centre government had framed a rehabilitation policy under which they are being rehabilitated in the state without any verification", said Partap adding that this is dangerous for the state as well as the nation.
He said, "Killing of civilians on the national highway, which is a peaceful zone, proves that the government is behind this anti-national act to create anarchy, communal tension and sabotage parliamentary elections as both the NC and Congress have lost confidence of the people."
Reacting to the terror attack, candidate for Udhampur constituency Bhim Singh has urged the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to dismiss the chief minister to save the state from destruction. He reminded the Prime Minster about Jawahar Lal Nehru dismissing his friend Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah in 1953 when he realised that Sheikh had turned a security threat to the country.
Meanwhile, expressing shock over the terror attack at Dayalachak, BJP National Executive Member Nirmal Singh held the Congress-led UPA government directly responsible for the gory incident that has angered the entire nation.
Addressing mediapersons Partap said, "The Congress' soft approach towards the aggressor Pakistan and Kashmiri separatists and its appeasement policy is directly responsible for the terror attack at Dayalachak" and added that it could not be a co-incidence that the terror attack happened two days after the BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi addressed his maiden mammoth 'Bharat Vijay Rally' at Hiranagar and a day after Pakistan took the UPA government for a ride and declared that Jammu and Kashmir was not an internal issue of India.
Partap said latest terror attack was not only to terrorise the people, but also to derail the ongoing electoral process in the state, particularly in Jammu province, where the BJP is standing on a very strong wicket.
He demanded an ex-gratia payment of `10 lakh for the bereaved family, a minimum compensation of Rs. 2 lakh too each among those injured and provide all the required medical facilities to the wounded unarmed innocent civilians.
