BJP’s state unit spokesperson Virender Gupta said enough is enough and the time is right for the Centre to direct the security forces to “attack and destroy” militant training camps across the border in Pakistan.
Condemning the Pampore attack, the party said the Centre and the state government should adopt a decisive and pro-active policy and formulate an action plan to flush out and eliminate all militants.

Expressing concern over a large number of educated youths taking to militancy, he said: “There is a general perception that Kashmiri youths are being groomed and motivated to join militant ranks by some of the school, college and university teachers and religious preachers.”
“Therefore, it is essential that the state and central security agencies identify such elements and take action against them,” he said.
Gupta said it was time the security cover provided to separatist leaders was also be withdrawn, which he said was a burden on the national exchequer and against the interests of the nation,” he added.
