Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Friday said that the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir is just a rumour and nothing else as some people are feeling uncomfortable with the present peace in the Union Territory and are now trying to fulfill their petty political interests. spreading false rumours.

Speaking to a national television channel, LG Sinha said that some people are spreading false rumors to keep their political swamp relevant and serve their political interests. “Only selfish people fuel rumours. The bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir is just a rumour, nothing more.”

The J&K LG said what he was saying was “with full responsibility and people have understood what he meant”.

Responding to a question about the movement of troops in Kashmir, he said it does not give any indication of anything. “The paramilitary forces had gone to West Bengal for election duty and they are returning now. Some 60 companies were allotted to J&K and are returning. Many jawans were also under quarantine and they too are returning,” said LG Sinha, adding that whenever the Amarnath Yatra takes place in Jammu and Kashmir, the movement of such contingents is a routine.

Asked whether the J&K government would go ahead with the Amarnath Yatra despite the COVID pandemic, he said the administration under his leadership had taken several steps to contain the spread of COVID and they were successful to a large extent. “Nothing is more important than the life of a human being. The situation of COVID will improve in the coming days. After a thorough analysis of the situation, a decision will be taken on conducting the annual pilgrimage.”

On the assembly elections and the delimitation process, LG Sinha said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced at the Red Fort that once the Delimitation Commission completes its exercise, assembly elections will be held in Jammu and Kashmir. He said that let the Delimitation Commission submit its report. Regarding NC’s participation in the delimitation process, he said that if NC participates in the exercise, they will fulfill their responsibility.

Asked whether terrorism has been curbed in Jammu and Kashmir, the LG said the arrival of tourists shows that there is peace in Kashmir and there is no law and order situation. “No doubt there have been some incidents of violence, but the recruitment of local militants is less. We have the upper hand over terrorists. Security forces are maintaining close coordination. A handful of people are trying to disturb the peace but the government is then determined to give up and act according to the law.

Asked why some people are alleging discrimination against Jammu, he said there is freedom of expression in a democracy, but it does not mean, “whatever people say will become government policy.” “My tenure is witness to the fact that not a single decision has been taken by my administration where one can smell the discrimination. Gone are the days of discrimination. The Jammu and Kashmir government has two eyes.
