JAMMU — Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Wednesday said that whosoever would be found part of the “terror ecosystem” will face action as per the law and that it was the prime duty of police and security agencies to trace such people.

“Whosoever is found to be part of terror ecosystem will face action, none will be spared. It is the prime duty of police and security agencies to track down such people,” LG said while replying to a query whether action would be also taken against politicians if found involved in “supporting terror or terrorism”. The LG was addressing a press conference in Jammu, as per the news agency KNO.

He said that almost all migrant Kashmiri Pandits have been posted at various district headquarters and there may be some whose issues are being settled down. “We have a nodal officer who is monitoring the grievances of migrant KPs. All measures are being taken to resolve their issues,” the LG said, adding that it was not like one would sit home and enjoy salary and other perks.

He, however, said that some targeted killings of KPs took place after which migrant KP groups raised certain concerns. “The administration took swift action and resolved the issues confronting the KP employees working under PMRP,” the LG said.

To a query that there were militant threats about the opening of developmental centers in J&K, the LG said that it was the J&K administration and the Centre that takes calls on who would work, who would open offices, and who would invest here. “Yahan koun rahega aur koun nahi, ye prashasan aur kender Sarkar decide karegi (Who has to stay here and who not, will be decided by the J&K administration and Government of India),” the LG said as per KNO.

Asked whether the administration would allow Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra set to enter J&K in January, he said the government believes in democratic principles and no drive or march that is held within such principles is banned or disallowed. “As far as Covid protocol is concerned, we will see and monitor what would be Covid situation (in January),” he said, adding that only such activities that go against India’s sovereignty are banned and disallowed.

To a query that some media reports suggest investment proposals were on paper only, the LG said that he too came through such news reports. “But the fact remains that there have been investments of Rs 100 Crore, 200 Crore, and even Rs 900 Crore as well. We are facing infrastructure-related issues in some places that are being addressed. I assure you all that Rs 70,000 Crore investment will be a reality soon,” he said.

The LG said that in the next five years, every town will be developed under the ‘My Town My Pride’ program while aspirational Panchayat Developmental Programs will be launched for the development of Panchayats. He also announced a slew of measures that his administration will be taking to promote and push J&K’s agriculture and its allied sectors to promote the UT’s economy.
