Army should carry out Myanmar-type action in PoK: J&K BJP MLA
A BJP MLA in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday demanded that the Centre adopt a "proactive policy" and allow the army to carry out a Myanmar-type operation against the terrorist training camps across the LoC.
"In the recent days, there have been inputs by the Army Intelligence, RAW and other intelligence agencies that the militants, who earlier were being trained by the ISI and the Pakistani Army, are now being trained by members of terror outfits like the Islamic State," Ravinder Raina, the BJP MLA from Sunderbani said.
"The IS has already entered the training camps in PoK as they have made a major base in neighbouring Afghanistan" and its members are training the militants in the PoK camps, he claimed.
"As you know that a few days ago, the Indian Army entered Myanmar and destroyed the terror infrastructure there. Now the army must replicate the same and enter PoK and destroy the terrorist infrastructure in that region," he said. The BJP legislator asserted "the Indian Army is capable of carrying out such an operation in PoK, but India needs to adopt a proactive policy." "Army should be allowed to enter PoK and destroy the training camps set up by Pakistan. The army must destroy them the same way it destroyed the camps in Myanmar," he said.
