Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) S P Vaid Wednesday said that counter-insurgency operations will be “much easier” for forces during Governor’s rule.
“I think, operations will continue. Only thing was in between during this period, operations were stopped. They were going on earlier also. But we will intensify these operations in days to come and it would be, I think, much easier to work,” Vaid said in an interview with NDTV.
As Governor N N Vohra held meetings with government agencies, Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat said ongoing military operations in the Valley against militants would continue as earlier.
Forces are likely to get a free hand to deal with militants and that counterinsurgency operations in the Valley may spike, a media report said while quoting sources.
“With the Centre directly controlling the state, we think now there will not be much political interference in our anti-militancy operations,” a senior police officer told The Indian Express. “A civilian government has many political compulsions that would, at times, hamper our operations.”
