Heavy security for J&K Assembly’s Budget Session
Jammu: Heavy security has been put in place around Jammu where the Budget Session of the state legislature begins Monday morning. More than 2,000 security personnel are guarding the legislature complex and the roads leading to it.
According to police sources, this step has been taken following reports of terrorist threats. The police have some intercepts.
While the policemen have taken positions at the rooftops, and areas overlooking the legislature complex, closed circuit television cameras too have been installed at crucial points.
The Budget Session will commence with an address by Governor NN Vohra to the joint session of the two houses -- the Legislative Assembly and the Council -- around mid-morning.
Speaker Mohammad Akbar Lone said that all arrangements for a smooth session have been completed. "I hope that things would be quite smooth and the focus would be on raising issues of public importance," he said.
According to official sources, the Governor`s address would outline the return and rehabilitation policy of the government for militants, currently in Pakistan administered Kashmir.
