CM holds security meet, advocates healing touch towards youth

Srinagar, Apr 25 : The worsening security situation in Kashmir was discussed today at a high-level meeting where Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti directed the forces to exercise restraint and advocated a “healing touch” towards “our own youth” caught in the cycle of violence.

She said youth engagement should be prioritized rather than viewing it as a routine law and order issue and asked the security agencies to improve interface with the public to allay people’s apprehensions and misgivings about the system.

She was chairing a meeting of the Unified Command Headquarters, the multi-agency security body, here against the backdrop of spiralling protests and violence in the Kashmir valley over the last few weeks.

“The youth unfortunately caught in the cycle of violence are our own youth who ought to be won over with healing touch,” Mehbooba said at the meeting attended by Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh and top officials of the state government, the army and the paramilitary forces.

“The Chief Minister directed the security agencies to exercise restraint while dealing with provocative situations,” an official said.

She said that wherever restraint had been exercised, it had shown positive results on the ground for the government and helped in maintaining peace and order.

Advocating holding of counseling sessions for the youth, Mehbooba said it would not only help allay their apprehensions and misgivings about the system but would also give the security agencies a chance to reach out to people through community policing, the official said.

She said youth engagement should be prioritized rather than viewing it as a routine law and order issue and directed that care should be taken to avoid and minimize all collateral damage while conducting operations.

“She also directed that parents of the youth be taken into confidence as and when there is some complaint about any youth and in no way should the family be held accountable for the deeds of the said youth,” they added.

Besides the Deputy Chief Minister, the meeting was attended by Chief Secretary B R Sharma, Financial Commissioner and Principal Secretary to Chief Minister B B Vyas, Principal Secretary, Home, R K Goyal, Director General of Police S P Vaid, GoC-in-C of Northern Command Lt Gen Devraj Anbu, Corps Commanders of various Army formations operating in the state; and Divisional Commissioners of Kashmir and Jammu.

Senior officers of CRPF and BSF were also present in the meeting.

Mehbooba had yesterday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in Delhi and emphasised the need for a dialogue with separatists to contain deterioration in the situation.

“PM Needs To Understand…”: Rahul Gandhi On Recession

The centre is expecting the recent easing of farm and labour laws, along with tax incentives, to bolster manufacturing and lure more foreign investment.

Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi today took a swipe at the government over reports that the economy has gone into a recession and crores have been left unemployed. He pointed to the basic job scheme MGNREGA, which was launched by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government, as having made to remain idle with “three crore people still looking for work”.

“Under PM Modi, India’s economy is officially in a recession for the first time ever. More importantly, 3 crore people are still looking for work under MNREGA. Economy cannot be ordered to grow by diktats. PM needs to first understand this basic idea,” Mr Gandhi tweeted, in what was seen as an allusion to PM Modi’s often overnight announcements that result in sweeping policy changes immediately.

Under PM Modi, India’s economy is officially in a recession for the first time ever.

More importantly, 3 crore people are still looking for work under MNREGA.

Economy cannot be ordered to grow by diktats. PM needs to first understand this basic idea.

— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) November 27, 2020
From sudden demonetisation in November 2016 to the announcement of the lockdown in late March necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic, which led to hardships, opposition leaders have been attacking PM Modi over decisions that they say were taken without considering their impact on a vast number of the population.

The country’s gross domestic product (GDP) also shrank for the second straight quarter through September, although it showed signs of a pick-up after the easing of pandemic restrictions that triggered a record contraction in the previous quarter.

The GDP in July-September quarter contracted 7.5 per cent on year, data released by the National Statistical Office today showed, compared to a decline of 23.9 per cent in the previous three months.

Annual growth of 3.4 per cent in farm sector and 0.6 per cent in manufacturing during September quarter raised hopes of an early recovery as the government gears up to distribute COVID-19 vaccine whenever it becomes available.

The centre is expecting the recent easing of farm and labour laws, along with tax incentives, to bolster manufacturing and lure more foreign investment.

India is not alone in suffering from economic troubles because of the pandemic. Several other nations have seen their economy shrink as manufacturing slows down.
