Army will give adequate response to border violations: Arun Jaitley

Earlier in the day, Jaitley had a meeting with senior commanders and troops at a forward post along the Line of Control (LoC) and reviewed security situation. He later said that all security agencies were on high alert to deal with militants.

The minister's comments came as the National Investigation Agency filed a case against separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani and other Hurriyat leaders for allegedly receiving money from the Lashkar-e-Taiba to fund "subversive" activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Except for some areas in south Kashmir, one finds that Srinagar and the rest of the Valley is very hospitable as usual", he said.

Jaitley was on a visit of the LoC in Rampur sector of Baramulla district. "I complement the Indian Army for its level of preparedness and enthusiasm", he said.

"The army is fully confident not to allow any form of infiltration to take place".

"If there are ceasefire violations, our soldiers will give an adequate response". "Terrorism and militancy, and those who have taken to violence, will be treated differently", the Minister said. "Therefore, those who have taken up the violence of this magnitude will be accountable of their actions". "That is what we are trying to do", Jaitley, who is also the Defense Minister, said. "Separatists were funded to create unrest, burn schools, to kill people, and destroy public property".

He said that the government would want the average Kashmir citizen irrespective of his politics to be on the Indian side of the debate.

"You can't have the energy of the state involved in combating violence in various places".

Jaitley, who is also the Union Finance Minister, said the resources which are meant for economic development, are today being used esentially for security.

"Who is to be blamed for unleashing the era of violence", he asked.

"Let us not forget that Army is a responsible institution and the Army was also interested in saving the lives of various people, who were both involved in election process as also the large crowd of protestors who had gathered there", he added.

Priority at the moment, he said, is to restore normalcy. While a section would comprise security measures, another would entail citizen-friendly measures, he said.

On the possibility of the state's inclusion in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, the minister said, "I can tell you economic development of the state is certainly our priority".

Jailtey pointed out that there have been instances in the past when a strategic presence has been established in the name of connectivity.

On the demand of return of power projects to the state, he said the state government and the Union Power ministry were discussing it.
