Srinagar, Feb 11: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Sunday said as many as 154 government employees were removed from service after they were found involved in terror activities and added that action against such people will continue.
Speaking at the ET Now Global Business Summit 2024 here, he said that 154 government employees were removed from service after they were found involved in terror activities. Action against such people will continue, he asserted.
Holding Article 370 responsible for terrorism and separatism in Jammu and Kashmir, the LG took a dig at pervious governments and accused them of pushing Jammu and Kashmir into turmoil. Sinha said while stone pelting and strikes at the behest of Pakistan has become history, today’s reality is that the youth are holding the tricolour with pride.
Cinema halls were reopened in the Valley after 30 years and markets no longer wear a deserted look, he said.
“The transformation in Jammu and Kashmir is credited to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, achieving once deemed impossible targets, notably the Article 370 abrogation. Stone pelting and Pakistan-backed strikes are history, with the region now progressing akin to other parts of India, witnessing the revival of nightlife and cinema halls. Sinha affirmed his administration’s firm stance against Pakistan supporters, prioritizing the restoration of law and order,” the LG added. KNS
