‘Talks With People Who Believe In The idea of India, Tricolour’: LG Sinha Unveils The Kashmir Policy

SRINAGAR: Lt Governor, Manoj Sinha has said that his administration is working on “demolishing the whole terror ecosystem.” He was speaking at Agenda Aaj Tak.
Responding to the question in this regard from the host journalist, he said, “There
are many people, some of whom are your fellow colleagues, intellectuals, who are people of great standing and reputation in foreign countries, are involved in
terror funding, in business. We are trying to work on this simultaneously. And I feel, we will be successful in destroying this ecosystem.”
He said that earlier the Government of India did not have that vision. “We talked
only to those who were the biggest threat to peace.”
“Those people who were a threat to peace used to be flown to Delhi for treatment,” he said. Sinha also stated that period of talking to
people with “soft separatist tendencies” is over, insisting talks will only be held
terrorism, are we committing a crime by demanding five companies of forces?
What is wrong in that?” He said there has not been an increase in the deployment
of the army.“I give assurance that neither the forces nor the CAPF or the Jammu and Kashmir Police would be used against an innocent
person. And, if something happens, law will be used against those people [in the
forces] as well. I am saying it in public.” On Hyderpora encounter, Sinha said that
inquiry would be completed in 2-3 days. “If an innocent has been killed, and
anybody is found guilty, he would be definitely punished.” “I am assuring the nation that you come
here. You are welcome here. Your security is our responsibility,” the LG
said. “If one compares the tourist influx of eight years it has increase. In July,
10.50 lakh tourists came to Jammu and Kashmir. The number increase to 11.28
lakh in August. It crossed 12 lakh in September and in November 13.46 lakh
tourists visited Jammu and Kashmir. Number of flights arriving in Srinagar has
increased. Hotel bookings have increased.” With regard to return and rehabilitation
of Kashmiri Pandits, Sinha said that jobs and houses announced the PM’sPackage
was just the start. “I think that 6000 jobs and houses in PM s Package was just the
start. But, for those 6000 jobs it has taken I don’t know how many years. When I
came here, there were 3200 vacancies. Now there are 123 posts vacant.” “I am assured that whatever steps we are taking, situation would be such that
Kashmiri Pandits can live here. There are certain things regarding which I don’t
want to talk but when snow and winter season gets over, whole country would
understand that measures are now being taken in that direction,” Sinha said.
