Asserting that the recent incidents of ceasefire violations were aimed at facilitating infiltration from across the border, J&K Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Monday said that Pakistan was desperately trying to disrupt the annual Amarnath Yatra in the state.

“The Pakistan side is desperate to attack Amarnath Yatra and Vishno Devio Yatra, in the wake of the tightened security in the state and the tough stand of the Central government,” he told reporters in Jammu.

While Pakistan army and the ISI are busy in anti-India activities, the intentions of the Pakistan government are also not clear, he said.

Addressing the party workers during a function on Monday, Singh also spoke about the alleged differences between the PDP-BJP coalition in the state.

The coalition partners in the state have their own separate agendas and the day BJP feels that it has become difficult for the party to continue, it would not spare a
moment to pull out of the government.

“Problems do arise as we have our own agenda and our ruling partner (PDP) has a different agenda. The day the party (BJP) feels that it has become difficult to continue (in the coalition), we will not stay in power for one second,” he said.

The leader stated that in the past four months since the formation of the state government, BJP has “set a level playing field with the coalition partner and the party would soon start delivering to the people of Jammu”.
