Kolkata: Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh said the state government has total control over the recurring cross border infiltrations and that the situation is completely stable.
"All cross border infiltration attempts are being foiled and those that have been successful, you can see that we have killed or captured those terrorists. Our security forces are tackling the situation with their best efforts" Singh told the media here.
The Deputy Chief Minister praised the Centre and said that unlike the UPA government, the NDA government had given full freedom to retaliate which was proving to be the most effective.
"Presently our defence forces are ready and attacking and we are not giving the terrorists any chances. During Congress` reign, you had to wait for the permission to come from Delhi, but now we have the freedom to retaliate heavily," Singh said.
Speaking about the issue of the ISIS flag being spotted in Srinagar, Singh said that it was not serious and that it was simply an attempt by the terrorists to show their presence and get media`s attention.
"They know that all they need to do is wave their flags after which the media will descend on it. This means nothing, they just want to show they exist," Singh said.
In view of Independence Day, the BSF has stepped up vigil and deployment has been increased along the border to prevent any cross border infiltration.
