No one can disturb peace: Sinha

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Lt Governor Manoj Sinha on Friday said no one will be allowed to disturb the peace in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Those who are conspiring to disrupt peace in Jammu and Kashmir will have to pay a heavy price,” he said.

He said the Jammu and Kashmir Police have made great sacrifices for maintaining peace in the region and rooting out terrorism and separatism.

“There are still some elements that are conspiring to destroy the peace in Jammu and Kashmir on behalf of our neighboring country. Such elements will have to pay a heavy price”, he added.

The Lt Governor said the Police and security forces would avenge every tear shed by the family of the martyrs. “Putting the last nail in the coffin of terrorism will be the best tribute to the martyrs.”

He was addressing the police commemoration ceremony at the Armed Police complex at Zewan here.

“Be it restoring law and order, fighting terrorism, fixing the traffic system or preventing criminal activities, the police is on every front,” he said.

He said the Jammu and Kashmir Police was considered one of the best forces in the country which is fighting on many fronts in a highly professional manner.

Without naming any political party, Lt Governor Sinha said those trying to justify the killing of innocent people for their personal interests are actually challenging the integrity and sovereignty of the country.

“I have no hesitation in saying that strict action would be taken against these people”, he said.

He said the police have achieved great success to ensure the end of militancy. “We have been quite successful in ending militancy and separatism.”

“We are committed to equip the Jammu and Kashmir Police with the latest equipment to combat terrorism and other challenges”, he said. “The government is also committed to the welfare of the families of the martyrs.”
