Terrorists desperate to disrupt J&K’s democratic process’: Army chief

Army Chief General MM Naravane on Saturday said that terrorists across the border are making desperate attempts to infiltrate into the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and disrupt normal democratic processes."With the ongoing situation on our western borders, terrorism continues to be a serious threat, and that is not abating in spite of all efforts made.

There are terrorist launch pads and terrorists across the line of control (LoC) making desperate attempts to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir to disrupt normal democratic processes," Naravane said.

He said that with the onset of winters, last-ditch attempts are being made to infiltrate before the passes close and level of snow make it impossible to cross over.

Meanwhile, first phase of DDC polls ended in J&K with nearly 52% voting turnout.

People of Poonch set an example of Communal Harmony, celebrate Baisakhi together

India leaves the entire world awestruck with its ability to be home to a number of different cultures and religions and imbibe them peacefully. During a number of occasions, people of various castes and communities could be seen gathered under one roof as a mark of brotherhood and bonhomie among them. A similar scene was witnessed in the Poonch area of Jammu and Kashmir where people of different religious communities came together to be a part of Baisakhi celebrations at Nangali Sahib Gurudwara. Devotees of all faiths gathered at this Gurudwara in Poonch and offered their prayers to mark the auspicious occasion. As food plays a major role in uniting different faiths, a community kitchen or langar was also organised in which devotees of different faiths and backgrounds sat together and enjoyed the meal.
