JKNPP activists, led by party chairman and former minister Harsh Dev Singh, gathered outside the residence of Nirmal Singh at canal road in Jammu and began shouting slogans demanding his and BJP legislators resignation.

"We gheraoed the residence of Nirmal Singh as the sinister coalition between the BJP and PDP is responsible for the deteriorating situation in the state," Harsh Dev Singh said.

"We sought the resignation of the deputy chief minister as well as the BJP MLAs for maintaining the stoic silence while the anti-national slogans were raised on the floor of the House," he said referring to NC legislator Mohammad Akbar Lone's pro-Pakistan slogans in the House last Saturday.

He said the frequent terror attacks on the camps of the security personnel had shaken the belief of the civilians on the present regime as far as the "credibility, efficiency and the intentions" of the incumbent government were concerned.

Paying homage to the slain soldiers, the JKNPP chairman said despite spurt in terror attacks the BJP-PDP government had not "learnt lessons well from its past mistakes and grossly failed to plug the holes in the security lapses which had been a root cause of such fatal attacks".

A group of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists had struck the Sunjuwan military camp in the wee hours on Saturday, killing seven people, including six soldiers. Three terrorists were also gunned down.
