NEW DELHI — The NDA government’s claim that more militants were killed in Kashmir during its rule than in the UPA dispensation actually tells how it allowed militancy and violence to re-emerge in the Valley, said National Conference (NC) vice president and former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah.

“Actually minister sahib this tells the story of how your government allowed militancy & violence to re-emerge in J&K forcing the security forces to kill more terrorists,” Omar wrote on Twitter.

Actually minister sahib this tells the story of how your government allowed militancy & violence to re-emerge in J&K forcing the security forces to kill more terrorists. You should be embarrassed by these statistics not be claiming them as some achievement.

Number of terrorists killed in Jammu & Kashmir:
In 2012- 72
In 2013- 67
In 2014- 110
In 2015- 108
In 2016- 150
In 2017- 217
In 2018 (till May)- 75
This is the story of efforts made during UPA and NDA regimes to fight terrorism in J&K.

 

Omar Abdullah was reacting on Saturday to Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s tweet and statement that more militants were killed under the NDA government than in the UPA rule.

Prasad said security forces had killed 72 and 67 militants in 2012 and 2013 under the UPA and the figure rose to 110 in 2014 when the BJP-led NDA came to power at the Centre.

He said the forces killed 108 militants in 2015, 150 in 2016, 217 in 2017 and 75 till May this year.

Omar said the increase in the number of militants killed was not an achievement.

You should be embarrassed by these statistics not be claiming them as some achievement, the NC vice president wrote.
