After trying to foment unrest in Kashmir for years in vain, Pakistan is now eyeing Punjab: AIATF chief M S Bitta


As Punjab wages war against radical elements in the state, All India Anti-Terrorist Front chairman Maninderjeet Singh Bitta said Pakistan has realised the futility of time and again raising the Kashmir issue and was now trying to target Punjab.

“Pakistan has realised the futility of raising the Kashmir issue time and again… Since the abrogation of Article 370 in J&K, you have seen change in the situation there. So, they now again want to target Punjab,” Bitta, who survived a terrorist attack in Delhi in 1993 when he was chief of the Youth Congress, told.

In the recent past, Punjab has witnessed a multi-fold increase in drone activities from across the international border with Pakistan, with many drones dropping arms and ammunition, and several of them shot down by the BSF troops. (Agencies)
