NEW DELHI: Admonishing Pakistan for its persistent ceasefire violations along the International Border (IB) and Line of Control (LoC) in J&K besides its overt and covert support to secessionists in the Valley, a strong contingent of Panthers Party activists spearheaded by Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP along with other leaders staged a massive demonstration outside Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi on Thursday.
A huge contingent of Delhi Police comprising hundreds of security personnel raised barricades and restrained the protestors near Pak High Commission to proceed further.
Addressing the gathering, Harsh lambasted Pakistan for its recent unprovoked and indiscriminate firing of small arms, mortars and missiles in Bhimber Gali sector of district Rajouri, J&K during which one Captain and three soldiers were martyred.
Referring to the Pak shelling and firing in Keri sector of Rajouri in December last year in which one Major and three soldiers had attained supreme sacrifice, he divulged that it was for the second time in less than one and a half month that the army had suffered similar fatal casualties in a single incident of cease fire violation.
Recalling the incident of Pakistan’s maltreatment with the family of Kulbhushan Jadav in Lahore during December last year, Harsh Dev Singh said that the whole exercise of holding the meeting of Jadhav and his family lacked credibility as his mother and wife were ill treated by both the authorities as well as the media in Pakistan.
Later while talking to the media, he questioned BJP that where had the slogan of ‘beheading ten heads of the enemy in lieu of each martyred Indian Jawan’ vanished when the mauled and decapitated bodies of the slain soldiers were returned to their bereaved families in the past.
Urging upon the GoI to go the whole hog against the hostile neighbour for its nefarious designs, Singh said that exertion of diplomatic pressure on Pakistan to vacate all occupied territory of India besides the issue of economic sanctions against Pakistan with stoppage of all financial aid from institutions like IMF, World Bank, etc were required to be pursued vigorously.
While taking a dig at the NDA Government, Singh regretted that the BJP which would harp on its jingoistic harangues like ’56 inches chest of PM Modi’ had miserably retreated from its tall pronouncements with all rhetoric proving hollow rants. He exhorted UNO to declare Pakistan a ‘Terror State’ and asked GoI to act stringently against the rogue nation rather than mourning and condemning its timid acts.
Among those addressed the rally included Rajesh Padgotra, Romesh Khajuria, Sham Gorkha, Mohinder Singh, Udayveer, Rohit Sharma, Vishav Singh, Rajiv Jolly Khosla, Shakti Singh, R.P. Sharma, Surjit Singh, Dildar Hussain Beg, Gurcharan Singh and A.J Rajan.
