Will push last nail in coffin of terrorism in one year: Jammu and Kashmir Guv Manoj Sinha
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Saturday asserted that government will push last nail in the coffin of terrorism in one year.
“We have lost many innocent lives, now it has to stop. The right time has come to strike the last nail in the coffin of terrorism and its ecosystem. Your younger generation should not face the hardships that their forefathers went through. They must make the nation proud. The government will push last nail in the coffin of terrorism in one year and make peace a permanent feature of J&K,” the LG said while addressing a function in Srinagar.
Earlier, the LG laid the foundation stone of 25 DDC, BDC buildings and inaugurated 1000 Amrit Sarovars across J&K UT, in a function at SKICC, Srinagar.
Sinha said some people, on behest of the neighbouring country, were trying to create disturbance in J&K.
“The neighboring country which itself is living in misery, can’t do any good to the people of J&K,” he said
The Lt Governor said that in August 2019, the Prime Minister bestowed the Union Territory with a gift of a new dawn of development and prosperity.
“For 70 years, the socio-economic system of Jammu and Kashmir was facing serious crisis and in the last three years, the UT has achieved great strides in the direction of reducing the gap between villages and cities that had only widened in the last seven decades,” he said.
“It is our sacred obligation to defend every inch of motherland and even if we have to sacrifice everything, we shall be ready,” he said
The Lt Governor also spoke about thousands of youth in Tral Pulwama who paid homage to freedom fighters and reverberated the sky with slogans of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.
