BJP wants eradication of militancy in Valley: Kavinder Gupta
Jammu: Senior BJP leader and former Jammu and Kashmir deputy chief minister Kavinder Gupta Saturday said his party wanted the eradication of militancy in the Valley, asserting that “any person who is involved in anti-national activity has to be killed”.
He also opposed dialogue with Pakistan on Kashmir.
Gupta congratulated the people of Uri township of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district for defying the poll boycott call and threats of terrorists by turning up in large numbers in the third phase of the ongoing local body elections.
A militant is a militant and his killing by Army forces is commendable
“A militant is a militant and his killing by Army forces is commendable,” he said in a statement referring to the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Manaan Bashir Wani.
Wani, who was pursuing PhD in Allied Geology at Aligarh Muslim University, was killed in an encounter along with his associate in Kupwara district on Thursday. He had quit studies and joined the ranks of Hizbul Mujahideen outfit in January this year.
Referring to a statement by Mehbooba Mufti, Gupta said, “She can do anything to please her patrons, the Hurriyat leaders.”
