India’s security forces are retaliating strongly against Pakistan’s “sinister designs” to create problems in Jammu and Kashmir, and the neighbouring country will someday disintegrate on its own “because of its misdeeds”, deputy chief minister Nirmal Kumar Singh said on Saturday.
“Pakistan always tries to create problems in Jammu and Kashmir. A couple has died in Poonch and their children were injured but we are paying them (Pakistan) in the same coin,” Singh said in Jammu, responding to media queries on the death of a soldier and his wife in Pakistani shelling in Poonch on Saturday.
“Our forces are retaliating stingingly because Pakistan understands only that language. The sinister designs of Pakistan to create problems in the state won’t be allowed to succeed.
“Pakistan will not be successful in its attempt of creating an atmosphere of terror in the state. It will disintegrate on its own because of its misdeeds (of aiding and abetting terror)”, he said.
On a bandh call by the Hurriyat in Kashmir from July 8 to July 13 on Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani’s death anniversary, the deputy CM said tight security arrangements have been made.
“I have just come back from Srinagar. The situation is fine barring a firing incident (in Bandipora district) in which an army captain and two soldiers were injured but the people are not supporting them (Hurriyat) anymore.
“The people want peace, development and progress. With the passage of the GST resolution, a good message has gone to the country. The small traders and the trading community shall be benefitted by it,” he said.
Singh also hoped that the situation across Kashmir will become normal in the days ahead.
