Jammu, February 18: Jammu Chamber of commerce and Industries (JCCI) president, Rakesh Gupta on Monday blamed the anti-national elements for vitiating the peaceful atmosphere of Jammu province.
Addressing a press conference convened at Chamber House today, Gupta questioned the State Administration that what action has been taken against those who raised anti-national slogans and continue to do so still when curfew has been imposed in Jammu.
The Chamber President warned one and all that at no cost anti-India slogans will be tolerated. He urged the State Administration to identify the culprits and put them behind bars without any further delay.
He also attacked the inefficiency of Cyber Cell of Jammu and Kashmir Police for their inaction against those using fake Id’s injecting venom on social media against India.
Gupta appealed to the DGP to take effective measures against the inefficient staff and replace them immediately. He also questioned the policy and strategy on the part of the State Administration during this law and order situation and total collapse of accountability as anti-national elements are still raising anti-India and pro-Pakistan slogans in Jammu. He also blamed the State Administration at the higher level for communication gap with the stake holders.
Referring to anti-JCCI posts on social media by few forces working at the behest of anti-national elements both in Jammu and Srinagar, he said that JCCI will take on them later as the present situation has larger issues to deal with and ensure security of all communities and stand by brotherhood.
He welcomed the relaxation in curfew announced today and appealed to the Governor to order lifting curfew w.e.f tomorrow as the situation can never go out of hand in Jammu where peace loving and nationalist people reside.
Gupta appealed to the Governor Satya Pal Malik to announce an appointment for job under the J&K Government for the better half of killed CRPF personnel Naseer Ahmad from Rajouri and same law be made applicable as and when any soldier from any wing of security forces is martyred across the country whose marital status is married belonging to the State of Jammu & Kashmir
