SRINAGAR — Jammu and Kashmir’s Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha, declared at the ET Now Global Business Summit 2024 that a total of 154 government employees have been dismissed from service due to their involvement in militancy activities. He affirmed that actions against such individuals will persist.
Attributing militancy and separatism in the region to Article 370, Sinha criticized previous administrations for plunging Jammu and Kashmir into turmoil. He highlighted the transition from past unrest, such as stone pelting and strikes ‘orchestrated by Pakistan’, to the present scenario where the youth are proudly hoisting the national flag.
Sinha noted significant milestones achieved under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, notably the abrogation of Article 370. He emphasized the transformation in Jammu and Kashmir, including the reopening of cinema halls after three decades and a vibrant revival of markets.
“The transformation in Jammu and Kashmir is credited to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, achieving once deemed impossible targets, notably the Article 370 abrogation. Stone pelting and Pakistan-backed strikes are history, with the region now progressing akin to other parts of India, witnessing the revival of nightlife and cinema halls,” Sinha said as he affirmed his administration’s firm stance against Pakistan supporters, prioritizing the restoration of law and order.
