Last December, That burden of prosperity is evident in Goa.just-concluded assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir – the only Indian state assembly to have tenure of six years whereas all others have a lifespan of five years only – are of immense strategic importance,National Security Advisor Ajit Doval told Firstpost in an exclusive interview Doval said on Sunday that it was for the first time in decades especially since the state came in the grip of insurgency in 1989 when Jammu and Kashmir had peaceful transparent and free and fair polls in which a record number of people had come out to vote “The elections in J&K have been by and large peaceful Moreover there are no complaints of rigging or booth capturing or poll malpractices” Doval said “Isn’t it creditable” Doval asked The biggest achievement in this election according to Doval has been the high voter turnout in Jammu and Kashmir The state registered its highest voter turn-out in assembly elections in the last quarter century with an estimated 65 percent of voters casting their votes Whatever the election results may be – and the world will know that on 23 December when the votes are counted – the most important achievement of the Central government is that more voters visited the polling booths and cast their votes since the onset of militancy in the state in 1989 National Security Advisor Ajit Doval Doval however refused to answer questions on Pakistan and said the people of Jammu and Kashmir demonstrated that voices from the wilderness were marginalized “You just have to look at the facts how the Hurriyat and all separatist groups have been marginalized in these elections The heavy voter turnout proves that” Doval also talked about the high number of candidates particularly Muslims that the BJP fielded in these elections The BJP fielded candidates in 70 out of 87 assembly constituencies which is a record for the right-wing party in this Muslim dominated state The BJP fielded nearly 40 percent Muslim candidates as part of its strategy to try to form government on its own steam under its Mission 44 programme – the number 44 being an allusion to clear majority of just over 50% mark in the state assembly The party fielded a record 32 Muslim candidates in the state 25 in the Kashmir valley six in the Muslim-dominated Jammu region and one in Ladakh Doval noted that this was indeed a creditable feat for a party which is seen largely as a Hindu party to have fielded so many Muslim candidates in Muslim-dominated constituencies in a Muslim-dominated state Doval’s comments show how seriously the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken the Jammu and Kashmir assembly elections Though Doval declined to talk about the Pakistan angle in these elections it has been made amply clear that the Modi government has actually taken on Pakistan in a big way Pakistan-backed elements in Jammu and Kashmir egged on by their masters in Islamabad and Rawalpindi have always tried to mar the electoral process in this Indian state But Jammu and Kashmir assembly elections 2014 have scripted a different history this time around This is thefirst time inthe quarter century old insurgency history ofJammu and Kashmir that the Pakistan factor has been marginalized to such an extent In that sense the J&K elections are indeed of immense strategic significance and this is the point that Ajit Doval has emphasized However one last impediment remains to be crossed by India – that after the election results on 23 December a duly constitutional government takes over in J&K This is a residual issue but an important one in a democracy like India After the election process is duly completed in J&K it will be India’s turn to ask questions from Pakistan The Indian questions will be centered on ballot – not bullet The onus will inevitably shift on Pakistan After 23 December it should be the world not just India to ask Pakistan to conduct similar free and fair elections in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and in Gilgit-Baltistan region Post 23 December should be the time for India to deflect the onus on Pakistan After all isn’t it Pakistan that has all along questioned India’s democratic processes in Jammu and Kashmir even though the entire PoK continues to be micromanaged from Rawalpindi without any credible democratic elections for decades An embattled Mehbooba Mufti government is mulling over handing the reins of the ongoing crackdown against the mass protests to the Army who have been working alongside the police and CRPF to quell the protests over the last six weeks But it is now believed that the government is resorting to the use of maximum force in the form of the Army to retrieve the ground in south Kashmir that it has lost to people’s mass gatherings and pro-Independence processions and street protests Army chief General Dalbir Singh arrived in the Valley on Friday to review the security situation particularly in the four worst affected districts of south Kashmir that have become the epicenter of the current uprising These four districts —Pulwama Shopian Kulgam and Anantnag — continue to witness hundreds of pro-freedom rallies every day in the absence of an effective police force on the ground Sources said Singh who was briefed by General Officer Commanding of Chinar Corps Lt Gen Satish Dua instructed his commanders "to be ready for operations across south Kashmir" These operations sources added would help the law enforcing agencies particularly Kashmir police and CRPF to reassert control over the ground that has slipped under the control of police and CRPF The protests have gone out of hand since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on 8 July More than 70 people lost their lives in various protests Representational image PTI A defence ministry spokesperson in Srinagar said Singh reviewed the security situation and "collaborative measures" of the security forces towards ensuring peace and calm in the region "Gen Singh reinforced the need to synergise efforts with all the other stakeholders and assured all support for bringing in normalcy particularly in South Kashmir" the statement issued here said Throughout the last months armed militants had openly taken part in public rallies and protests in south Kashmir with some even addressing the rallies This had unnerved security apparatus in valley who had largely avoided carrying out any counter insurgency operations in the south fearing mass casualties But Kashmir police say militants had attacked them from crowds and in one instance even fired at an SHO in Kulgam district Inspector General of Police Kashmir region Javaid Mujtaba Gillani said that the anti-militancy operations by the Kashmir police had stopped for some time due to the prevailing situation from last two months "But since the situation has started improving we have started cordon search and anti-militancy operations We have started them again and what will happen is the influence of militants on this unrest will diminish quickly" IGP Gillani said The Army meanwhile is preparing for a massive redeployment across the villages and towns of south Kashmir “This deployment will help the police and paramilitary forces to regain control in countryside? was upset with the party for not giving him the top post, The central assistance of Rs 4, Udta Punjab is not
