Jammu, Jun 13: Time has come to make cost of military engagement of any Kind with India unaffordable for Pakistan and for that a limited war with Pakistan, which several military strategists have recommended, should be seriously considered and that too at the earliest.
This was stated by ex-Minister Choudhary Lal Singh in a statement issued here today. Paying homage to the four Jawans who were martyred in Ramgarh Sector of Samba district, Choudhary Lal Singh said “I would fail in my national duty if I do not speak-up against this naked aggression of Pakistan, which is both a failed as well as a terrorist state. We are losing Jawans almost every second day to the bullets of the enemies and we are talking about ceasefire. And there are demands for engaging Pakistan for a sustained dialogue.”
“Blinded by political ambitions, regional political parties of Jammu and Kashmir instead of seeking tough action against Pakistan are pleading for a dialogue with it. They have become vociferous advocates of Pakistan, Pakistan-based terror outfits, ISI and Pakistan Army. They have doubled their efforts to prevent the central government from taking an aggressive stance against Pakistan. But, I firmly believe, time has come to teach Pakistan a lesson which would not let it fire even a single bullet from across the IB or Line of Control (LOC),” said Choudhary Lal Singh.
He said this while addressing gatherings in Paloura, Gurrah Brahmana, Kangar, Palwal, Saidal, Mandal and Purmandal in Jammu and Samba districts in connection with preparations for the Maha Swabhiman Rally. Choudhary Lal Singh said “I do not understand why leaders of regional parties have special place for Pakistan in their hearts and minds? They are not worried about local issues or issues concerning their constituencies. Their focus is how Central government has to be stopped from going all out against Pakistan.”
“Thousands of border dwellers are worried about their future. They are demanding permanent solution of the repeated violations of the ceasefire on the international border. And what the state government is offering them is not a permanent solution but continuity of the status-quo. Killings will go on and we would be doing nothing but offering condolences and paying homage. This will not continue for long. People are losing patience and time will soon come, when they will on the roads demanding permanent stoppage of the bullets and mortars from Pakistan,” said Choudhary Lal Singh while adding that New Delhi should stop listening to Kashmir based politicians.
Regarding the preparations for Maha Swabhiman Rally, Choudhary Lal Singh said “None should think there is any fatigue factor among the Dogras seeking CBI probe in Rasana case. At 45 degree Celsius, we are on the roads demanding that state should recommend CBI probe in the Rasana case. We are confident that the 8 year old Goddess would get Justice only after CBI probe is ordered. All Jammu based leaders should keep in mind that no developmental package would be able to wash the sin of them having remained silent when the whole region was demanding CBI probe.”
“Don’t forget, you are MLAs and MLCs because of people of Jammu region. Your silence is being seen as collusion with those who are anti-Jammu and who are against CBI probe in Rasana case. And it seems that none has told you that we all have to return to our people within next 6 months for Lok Sabha elections. So, before it is too late, I again plead with every Jammu based leader to stand with the people of Jammu region and stop being spokesmen of the anti-Jammu forces,” Choudhary Lal Singh said. He addressed series of gatherings alongwith Dr Hari Dutt Shishu.
