Khatana discusses security situation, unemployment with Home Secy




STATE TIMES NEWS

NEW DELHI: MP Rajya Sabha Er. Gulam Ali Khatana today met Union Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla and discussed the present security situation in union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, problems of drug trafficking and unemployment here.
He submitted a charter of demands to the Union Home Secretary and demanded positive action on the same at the earliest.
MP Er. Gulam Ali Khatana said that the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir is witnessing a new era of peace and tranquility after the neutering of Article 370.
The Govt of India under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Bhai Modi has given a new developmental push to the UT. But there are certain areas which need your personal and immediate intervention.
He said that the enemy country is frustrated by the present peace in the UT of J&K has posed new challenges by pushing in drugs and arms, a threat well recognized by the Home Minister Amit Shah and serious efforts are also being put in to counter this menace.
A proposal for putting up Gamma Scanners has already been put up by CRPF and I also recommend that atleast 5 Gamma Scanners be put up at Qazigund, Anantnag in Kashmir, One on Rajouri-Poonch/Mughal Road, One at Bann Toll Plaza, Nagrota in district Jammu and two in district Kathua at Lakhanpur and Nagri-Parole. This will greatly help in checking the smuggling of drugs and arms and ammunition.
MP Gulam Ali Khatana further said that the youth of Jammu and Kashmir is facing growing unemployment and needs a comprehensive employment package. Those already working on adhoc arrangements, daily wages, contractual are also on the roads. It would be prudent if the Govt of India sanctions atleast 20 new Battalions of IRP/Border battalions and JKP so that unemployed youth could be given jobs and they should not fall in the hands of anti-social elements.
The social media has become another tool for the enemy nation to mislead our youth and radicalize them. It is imperative that we further upgrade out security grid and form a special battalion titled “Information Warriors” to counter, track and nab the cyber warfare, said Khatana.
