Govt will stand firm, eruption or no eruption: BJP's Ram Madhav on Kashmir situation

New Delhi: BJP leader Ram Madhav on Saturday asserted that an "uncompromising" fight against terrorism is important for Jammu and Kashmir's development and government will stand firm "eruption or no eruption", as violence broke out in the Valley after the killing of militant Burhan Wani.

"Government WILL stand firm, eruption or no eruption (sic)," he said in a tweet.

"We will always try, be it the state government or the central government, to work for peace and security of the common man of the Valley and also to create atmosphere for development of the state. An uncompromising fight against terrorism is part of it and important," he later said.

Madhav, a party general secretary, is the organisation's pointsman for the state.

Union Minister Jitendra Singh, who is MP from Udhampur, praised the security forces and appealed for peace saying all sections of society must come together in the fight against terrorism, regardless of their political ideology.

"We are proud of our security forces. They have achieved a major success on the counter terrorism front", Singh told reporters in Jammu.

"The fight against terrorism is universal and it has to be fought collectively and all sections of society regardless of their ideology must come together and unitedly fight it," he said.

"We appeal for maintenance of peace. The fight against terrorism is collective and requires a united effort of all stake holders in J&K," he added.

On providing security at living places for minorities, including colonies of Kashmiri Pandit employees in the Valley, he said, "The protection and safety of these places is responsibility of the Government and society. They should be provided full security."
