Telangana: Claiming that the Indian Army cannot end but only control militancy in Jammu and Kashmir, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has no policy on Kashmir. Owaisi told ANI, 'Army can control militancy in Kashmir, they can't end it. There have been attacks on sixteen army camps. We want to ask Prime Minister Modi government what is their Kashmir policy? Is there a policy or not?.' Owaisi further claimed that BJP has failed in providing governance in Kashmir. On Monday, Major Gogoi, the Army officer who tied a man to the bonnet of a jeep as a 'human shield' against a stone-pelting mob in Jammu and Kashmir, was awarded by Chief of Army Staff's (COAS) Commendation Card for his sustained distinguished service till now in counter-insurgency operations in the state. He has been performing his counter insurgency duties for more than a year with the 53 Rashtriya Rifles Battalion in Jammu and Kashmir.
