Jammu and Kashmir government will soon provide insurance cover to panches and sarpanches, Minister Ali Mohammad Sagar said here on Wednesday.
Despite threats by militant outfit Hizbul Mujhahideen, panches and sarpanches refused to resign and appealed to the govt to provide security to them.
BJP on Thursday said Omar Abdullah`s statement on the recent killing of sarpanches and panches smacked of an "excessively hyped political dynamism" of the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister.
Fifty panchayat members have tendered their resignations fearing for their life after the killing of a panch in North Kashmir`s Baramulla district.
