ABVP protests against Centre’s ceasefire announcement

JAMMU, MAY 17: Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) organised a protest march against the announcement of ceasefire by the Central government.
Large number of ABVP activists assembled here under the leadership of State Secretary Deepak Gupta and took out protest march. Raising slogans, the protestors flayed the unilateral decision of the central government to impose ceasefire for the military operations in Jammu Kashmir during the month of Ramzan. The decision has given a religious touch to the Indian Military Operations carried out Indian Army in Kashmir.
Addressing the students, Deepak Gupta said that the decision so imposed by the government on security forces is purely with the intention of the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to slow down ‘Operation All out’ in the valley. He further added that such ceasefire was imposed in the year 2000 during the Atal Behari Vajpayee government which led to the killing of 828 people in the valley. The instance of weapon snatching and attack on Indian Army in Shopian is a hint to the government that this ceasefire will fail, he said adding it will not prove good for the security forces as it is binding them to wait for the attack and then retaliate. He further said that the central government should not leave Army in the valley to get martyred in the hands of militants in this way and should be given right to carry ‘Operation All out’ in the valley so that the peaceful atmosphere can be created in the future. ABVP demands that the decision of imposing ceasefire should be revoked. Students will come on the roads against this decision of the central government, he added.
Haider Ali (SKAUST Jammu president ABVP) said that there is no religion of the terrorists and the Central government by declaring ceasefire has not only added hint in the mind of the community that the government is giving religious touch to the militants but also making this decision communal as well. He requested the Modi Government to revoke the decision and give free hand to the Army.
