Srinagar, Feb 20 (UNI) Asking his men to strictly uphold the Human Rights, CRPF IG (Kashmir) Sunil Kumar Jain today expressed satisfaction over the success achieved by the security forces against militants and said next two months will be crucial.
''The situation in the Kashmir valley has witnessed a sea change now against what was years ago,'' he said, stressing that they too would have to change.
Addressing jawans and all other ranks of the force here today after distributing DG's commendation certificates to winners, he stressed they were public servants and whatever they did should be in the best interest of the country and public.
''We are answerable to nation and its people,'' he said, adding people have great expectations from us and it is the duty of every soldier to uphold the HR and work for the betterment of the common people.
Mr Jain said about 20 years ago, nobody in the force had heard about Human Rights. ''Now we are teaching our troops about it before their deployment, he noted, asking them to imbibe it thoroughly.
About the recent success achieved by the security forces in the valley, he said they were ready for such encounters since November last year.
''There was information that militants will come down from the heights in the town. We achieved major success and a number of top leaders were killed,'' he added.
Mr Jain said next two months are crucial before the militants again shift to woods.
