Will not buy peace but will establish it: LG Sinha

“We will not buy peace. We will establish peace (in Jammu and Kashmir)”, Sinha told reporters at the Raj Bhawan.

Jammu: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Tuesday said the government is committed to establishing peace in Jammu and Kashmir instead of the “past practice of buying it”.

He said the security forces have gained the upper hand in countering terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir and are working to destroy the terror ecosystem in the Union Territory.

“We will not buy peace. We will establish peace (in Jammu and Kashmir)”, Sinha told reporters at the Raj Bhawan.

Sinha, who was replying to a question about an environment of fear being created in Kashmir by selective killings by militants, said the “intention of our administration is very clear that not to buy peace but establish it”.

“The era has gone when peace was being bought in Jammu and Kashmir. We will establish it. We want to destroy ecosystem of terrorism from its roots”, he added.
