Jammu: 'Pakistan is supporting 'infiltration' in the cover of ceasefire violations and a separate Army unit must be set up on the LoC with modern arms and equipment to counter infiltration and give befitting reply to ceasefire violations'. This was stated by Maulana Syed Athar Dehlavi, Chairman, Anjuman Minhaje Rasool (S) during a press conference here today. He was here in Jammu after completing his four-day visit to different parts of Kashmir, Rajouri, Poonch and Kishtwar. 'For the peaceful atmosphere, Pakistan Government should take immediate action against Hafiz Sayeed and Jamate Dawah just like Suwat valley militancy operation', he said. He added that with new dispensation at the Centre, India and Pakistan must launch joint operation against militancy and destroy terrorist camps across the border in PoK so that both the countries live in peace. 'No doubt National Conference led present State Government has completely failed in development particularly in borders, villages and mountainous areas of the State', he said, and demanded the Central Government for special package for the development of these areas. He welcomed the initiative of the Central Government regarding rehabilitation of the Kashmiri pandits and urged the Centre and State Governments to solve the pending matters of all type of refugees either they are from West Pakistan or PoK. 'Prime Minister should ask his Finance Minister to introduce and announce some schemes to upgrade health, education, transport and communication sectors before the coming budget for the benefits of the residents of border areas', he demanded. 'There is no impact of separatist forces in Kashmir Valley and people are ready to elect new Government by participating in the electoral process during upcoming Assembly polls. Separatists should work for an overall development of the State rather than issuing 'Hartal' calendars', he added. On present situation in Iraq, he said the organisation has appealed the Shia leaders of Iraq to get all the hostages including Indians released. Dehlavi while criticizing the US strategy said, 'There is no need to follow US. They are creating disturbance across the World through its Army and secondly through their agencies but we need to be alert'. Anjuman Chairman also rued the Union Railway Ministry for hike in train fares asserting that it is a burden on common man.
