Home Ministry approves deployment of 10,000 additional troops in Kashmir

The decision by the Centre comes days after the National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval returned from Kashmir. Doval had visited the valley to take stock of the security and infrastructure development in the state.

The Union Home Ministry, on Friday night, passed an order to deploy 100 companies of additional parliamentary forces in Jammu and Kashmir. As per the fresh move, 10,000 troops will soon join their counterparts in the valley.

The decision by the Centre comes days after the National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval returned from Kashmir. Doval had visited the valley to take stock of the security and infrastructure development in the state.

Reportedly, the Centre’s order states that additional deployment of forces will help in strengthening the Counter Insurgent (CI) grid homeas well as maintaining law and order situation in the valley. 40,0000 paramilitary personnel have already been deployed in Jammu and Kashmir due to the ongoing Amarnath Yatra.

The order also lists the details of troops, which will be mobilised ahead of the Independence Day on August 15. According to the report, 50 additional companies of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), 30 companies from the SSB, and 10 companies each from the BSF and ITBP will be deployed.

However, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti seems to be spooked by the government’s decision and has criticized the move. She once again raised the need to have peace talks with the people of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) and the Pakistan government.

Last month, Home Minister Amit Shah, while speaking in the Lok Sabha, had slammed the policies of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru during and after partition. He asserted the issue of J&K is a Congress legacy and depicts the failures of the then PM Nehru.
