'Some Politicians Encouraging Youth To Die In Kashmir'

27 January 2019

Jammu: Union minister and senior BJP leader Jitendra Singh Sunday claimed that some 'Kashmir-centric politicians' and their parties are doing disservice to the youth of the Valley by encouraging them to die in militancy. He praised lance naik Nazir Ahmad Wani, a Kashmiri militant-turned-soldier who was awarded the Ashok Chakra, and said the youth should make him a role model. Without identifying anyone, Singh said, 'I have no hesitation to say that some Kashmir-centric politicians, the separatist stand already identified, who are wearing the robes of mainstream and their parties are doing injustice to the youth of the valley.' 'They have secured the future of their children but are encouraging the children of their neighbours to die,' the minister of state in the PMO told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Udhampur district.
