Jammu, July 10: VHP today attacked the PDP-BJP government over the deteriorating situation in Jammu and Kashmir, saying the anti-national elements have spread their tentacles in the Valley and other parts of the state under the present dispensation.
VHP Patron Ramakant Dubey also expressed concern over loss of lives of a number of security personnel in various attacks by militants in the state in the last two-three months.
"It seems that during the rule of the present dispensation, the anti-national elements have spread their more tentacles in valley including other parts of the state as well," he told reporters here.
"Whether it is CRPF, BSF or state police personnel, the losses are increasing day-by-day. The situation has become difficult as militants after attacking the security personnel mingle with the public who following their dictates, become human wall for militants and make it impossible for security personnel to launch counter-attack," Dubey said.
Under such circumstances, it is very difficult, rather impossible, for the forces to counter militant's activities, he added.
Citing an example, he claimed, about a month ago a militant, who was killed at Kud, was being shielded by his brother who was a government employee and allotted a government accommodation in Jammu.
The VHP leader said that without the support from the public it is not possible for the security forces to achieve success against militants.
He also criticised the state government for releasing the stone-pelters (on the occasion of Eid), saying stone pelters were caught by security forces or police personnel, who risk their lives but they were set free with just a stroke of a pen.
Hailing security forces for killing a militant Burhan Wani in Kukernag yesterday, he said it is "saddening" that remarks by the political bosses after action by security forces are "lowering" their morale.
