    Terrorism on the Verge of Extinction in Jammu and Kashmir, Says LG Sinha!


    REASI/, June 23: Terrorism is breathing its last in  Jammu and and the recent acts of terror are signs of the “enemy's desperation”, Lt Governor Manoj Sinha said on Sunday.
    “We must hunt down the terrorists and their aides harbouring them,” Sinha said at the passing out parade of the  Jammu and Kashmir Police's 16th Basic Recruit Training Course batch at the subsidiary police training centre in Talwara of Reasi district.

    A total of 860 recruit constables of the border battalion took part in the parade on the completion of their training. They were administered an oath for performing their duties with dedication and honesty.
    “Terrorism is breathing its last and this has made our neighbour, the exporter of terror, desperate. The recent terror acts are a sign of our enemy's desperation,” he said, in an apparent reference to Pakistan.
    Ten people, including seven pilgrims, were killed and more than 45 injured in four separate terror incidents in Reasi, Doda and Kathua districts earlier this month.
    Sinha said the aim of his administration is complete elimination of terrorism from  Jammu and Kashmir.
    Speaking on the emerging threats of drug trafficking, cybercrime and radicalisation, he emphasised the need to ensure a high level of motivation and professionalism in the police to keep a step ahead of the adversaries.
    “I have great faith in the  Jammu and Kashmir Police, army and our security agencies. They are not only responsive to the safety and urgent needs of citizens but also effectively tackling terrorism in the cyberspace,” Sinha said.
    He added the police have always shown a high level of professional excellence under extremely challenging circumstances.
    “For several decades, this elite police force has been working with dedication to preserve the integrity and security of our country and kept the wheels of  Jammu and Kashmir's progress moving,” Sinha said.
    The subsidiary police training centre in Reasi is dedicated to training and imparting policing values and professional skills among the new recruits to meet the challenges of terrorism and law and order.
    Reiterating the resolve of the administration, police and security forces to root out terrorism from  Jammu and Kashmir, the Lt Governor urged the new recruits to work as a force multiplier in neutralising the terror threats.
    Sinha also commended the Police for its civic action programmes.
    “We are committed to the modernisation of the police force and the welfare of the police and security personnel and their families,” he added.
    At the outset, the Lt Governor took the Rashtriya Salute, inspected the parade, and took the salute at an impressive march past by the contingents.
    He also felicitated the cadets and handed over awards and certifications to the outstanding achievers.
    Director General of Police RR Swain also extended his wishes to the new recruits and asked them to work with honesty and dedicate themselves in the service of the people.
