Opposition should cooperate with Govt. over Army loss in Kashmir
2/16/2017 10:28:35 PM
The CPI(M) blame on the centre does not carry any merit because the BJP led NDA Government is not supposed to move about beating its breast while shedding tears over the sacrifice rendered by the Army in Kashmir while fighting terrorists. Yes, there has been a big loss to the nation whenever soldiers die while fighting militants and if the centre sheds tears it may demoralize the Army which is engaged in the elimination of militants. If the CPI(M) leaders are pained over the loss of four soldiers where was sitaram Yechury when 64 soldiers died Kashmir last year where was he when between 2007-2008 over soldiers lost their lives while fighting militants. Yechury should know it that since 88 Jammu and Kashmir is fighting a Pakistan sponsored insurgency and hence in this war the casualties among the Army on the expected lines. The CPI(M) has questioned Centre's alleged silence over killings of army personnel in Kashmir over the past three days. "This reconfirms the total failure of Centre's policy in Kashmir. An absolute lack of acknowledgement or meaningful political action by this government is shocking," CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said.He also expressed shock at the "absolute lack" of meaningful political action by Centre over killing of soldiers and wondered if the ruling BJP's "lip service" about forces is reserved only for poll speeches. To his question. Why is Modi and his government silent about these deaths? Modi is not supposed to berate the Army for their lack of preparedness for taking on the militants. Those militants,operating in the valley and those crossing into Jammu and Kashmir from across the border are fully trained in the handling of sophisticated weapons and high grade explosives which they utilize while fighting with the Indian soldiers. Are lip service and sermons about armed forces reserved only for election speeches? " Yechury asked in a Facebook post, apparently referring to the BJP hailing army's surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC) in September last in its poll campaigns. Condoling the deaths of the army men, Yechury sought to know how many deaths will it take to stir the government from its current alleged callousness towards sacrifices of the armed forces.It is wrong on the part of Yechury to expect political leadership to guide the troops tackling the menace of militancy. In India neither the Army meddle in politics nor the political, leadership issue sermons and guidelines to the troops on the strategy they should adopt while dealing with terrorists. The CPI(M) leadership should also know it that if the Army does not display restraint and carry out operations against the militants on specific information it may result in human rights violations if troops go beyond their brief. Once there are human rights violations in Kashmir there is widespread condemnation of the security forces. A situation has developed in Kashmir where people are seen indulging in breast beating over the killing of militants.And this development has surfaced in the valley since July 8 when militant commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with the security forces. His killing has resulted in the death of about civilians in clashes and scores of people, rather protesters, have been injured.Hence in this atmosphere it is a tight rope walking for tbe troops. And when the security forces have launched counter insurgency operations in Kashmir one should not expect any casualty among the troops. While fighting a war you know where the enemy is but fighting insurgency soldiers do not know where the terrorists have carved out hideouts. When compared to the north east region of India the casualities among the troops in Kashmir is less than in Nagaland, Jharkhand and other areas. Armymen have to be prepared for surprise attacks and that is what is happening in Kashmir where militants hurl grenades on Army camps and convoys. Instead of demoralizing the central Government the opposition to cooperate with the ruling parties which would be support to the Army.
