After the killing of Jammu and Kashmir DG Hemant Lohia amid Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit, the administration has become on high alert. Ahead of Amit Shah’s rally in Rajouri, the government shut down the internet in the district. Besides, the internet has also been banned in some areas of the neighboring districts of Jammu. The ban has been imposed till 7 pm today so that no disorderly elements can use the internet to spread chaos. Amit Shah reached Jammu late on Monday night. Hemant Lohia, DG of Jail, was killed by his own servant that day. Currently, the police have arrested his housekeeper Yasir Ahmed.
Terrorist organization The Resistance Force has claimed responsibility for the killing, but police say no terrorist links have been found so far. Amit Shah will be in Srinagar tomorrow and will review the security. Earlier today he is going to address a rally in Rajouri. It is believed that at this time he may announce an ST reservation for hill communities. Also, he is scheduled to address a rally in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Wednesday. This reservation will be given in education and employment. Some other communities in Jammu and Kashmir are demanding similar reservations.
Let us be informed that in the past, a leader of the ST status Gujjar Bakarwal community in Jammu and Kashmir has been sent to the Rajya Sabha. Amit Shah’s visit is also important for BJP. This is because the Union Territories are likely to hold elections within the next few months. Three years have passed since the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir and its bifurcation into two Union Territories. Now ready for the election. Apart from this, the government says that Jammu and Kashmir will be given statehood again in the future. However, such a decision will be taken only when the law and order situation improves.
