Dehradun- Army Chief General M M Naravane on Saturday said the state forces in Jammu and Kashmir have had a lot of successes recently as people there are fed up with militancy and want normalcy to return in J&K.
“As far as Jammu and Kashmir or our western neighbour is concerned, we have had a lot of successes in the last one week or ten days. In the last 10-15 days alone more than 15 militants have been killed there,” Naravane told reporters on the sidelines of the IMA’s passing out parade which he addressed as the reviewing officer.
“All this has been because of the close cooperation and coordination between all the state forces operating in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.
He said a majority of the recent anti-militancy operations were based on information provided by locals which is an indication that they are fed up with militancy and want normalcy to return to the valley.
“Most operations have been carried out on the basis of information provided by locals which goes to show they are also absolutely fed up with militancy and want that the situation should return to normal,” Naravane said.
