H.C. Jalmeria, Advocate, General Secretary & Spokesman of JKNPP has strongly reacted to the statement of J&K Chief Minister calling for a CBI enquiry into the alleged/concocted story of plotting to overthrow the J&K Chief Minister by the Army Chief, General V.K. Singh, said that the Chief Minister and the entire media must understand that a General shall not hunt with mosquitoes. He said that the government has turned itself into a laughing stock by saying that the then Army Chief General V.K. Singh has constituted a so-called Army Cell to dislodge Omar Abdullah’s government. He said that this not only funny but shocking too as the so-called revelations amount to exposing the highly sensitive operations of the Army.
He further said that General V.K. Singh certainly earned the wrath of the ruling Congress leadership by his eminent presence in an enormous/massive rally of the ex-servicemen in Haryana where Gujarat Chief Minister was also present. The Panthers Party leader said that the story floated by the vested interests and highlighted by great media men/Indian Express have proved it beyond an iota of doubt that the story planted was only to deter General V.K. Singh so that he may not plunge into direct politics.
The JKNPP leader said that the entire government stood embraced when the serving Army Chief moved the Supreme Court against the discrimination and maltreatment he met at the hands of the present government in connection with his premature retirement.
Whatever may be the situation, even if there was any plot prepared by the Army Chief that should not have been publicized to create division within the rank and file of the people and the administration. Floating such a story has damaged the national interest and threatened the security of the State.
