The Jammu and Kashmir administrative head on Monday blamed “some elements” in Pakistan for the fresh spate of killings in Kashmir, saying “they can’t digest the robust economy and tourism here “, news agency ANI reported.
Talking on the sidelines of a government function in Srinagar, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha told the news agency: “Some elements on the other side are attempting to create instability, they can’t digest the robust economy and tourism here.”
Sinha’s comments came after the increase in the killings and militant attacks this year.
Sinha claimed that the militancy in Kashmir was in its last stage. “When the lamp is about to go off, its flame flares more,” he said.
He said the administration and the government forces are “preparing to their full capacity” to deal with the situation.
