Comments Off

By K.N Pandita

Home Minister Rajnath Singh has just concluded his 4-day visit to J&K. He spent maximum of his time in Srinagar, and the customary eye wash of visit to Jammu by way of a balancing act.

I looked up in dictionary to find out if HM’s 5-Cs carries some deeper or mysterious meaning. I found none. What does he want to convey and to whom, is my question. Continue Reading…

Like all regressive activities, militancy, too, has to come to its logical conclusion which is its total effacement.
