Mehbooba urges forces to adopt ‘calibrated response’ to situations
Three days after an all-party meeting in Srinagar suggested unilateral ceasefire in Kashmir, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti asked the security agencies to adopt a ‘calibrated response’ to various situations during the holy month of Ramzan, ongoing tourist season and the upcoming annual Amarnath yatra. The directions were issued on Saturday during first meeting of Unified Headquarters (UH) after the biennial shifting of Government offices to Srinagar to review the security scenario.
On May 9, Mehbooba convened an all-party meeting and claimed that consensus was built on suggesting to the central leadership to announce unilateral ceasefire in Kashmir during the month of Ramzan and Amarnath pilgrimage. However, coalition partner BJP denied that consensus emerged in the meeting saying the ceasefire at this juncture was not in the national interest. The BJP said that a suggestion emerged in the meeting to urge the central leadership for ceasefire on the pattern of one announced during Vajpayee regime.
An official spokesman said that during the UH meeting detailed review of the security scenario in the State including the situation along the borders was taken. Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta was also present in the meeting.
Heads of all security organisations, intelligence agencies and top civil officers took part in the meeting also attended by Northern Commander Lt gen Devraj Anbu.
The Chief Minister stressed upon the security and intelligence agencies to synchronize their efforts and actions on the ground, while dealing with the challenging situations, through strict adherence to prescribed Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). She advised the security agencies to ensure safety and security of general public and their properties, while dealing with security and law and order related incidents.
