Addressing a largely attended day long convention of Mahila Congress at Jammu today organized by Pradesh Mahila Congress under the leadership of Indu Pawar Ex-MLA, in which Mahila wing Presidents of districts and all blocks of Jammu province attended, Sushmita Dev expressed serious concern over the increased incidents of violence and atrocities against women in various parts of the country.

She also took serious note of the incident of rape and Murder of an eight years girl in Kathua district and said that it is unfortunate that State which has a women Chief Minister has witnessed such a gruesome incident.

She also expressed serious concern over the continued shelling from across the border leading to large number of casualties of civilians and our Jawans and said that the number of ceasefire violations have crossed all past records.

She said the borders were comparatively calm and Kashmir situation was much better under UPA regime, which indicates the Modi govt. policy towards Pakistan and to deal with Jammu and Kashmir situation is a failure. Modi Ji undertook an unscheduled visit to Lahore also but in return we witnessed increased militant attack and ceasefire violations.

She appreciated the efforts of Pradesh Mahila Congress for organizing largely attended convention in this situation and asked the women folk to come forward to secure their due share in politics and every sphere of life. She also questioned the BJP for its lack of commitment to fulfill the promise of providing reservation to the women in the legislative bodies despite the Congress always espousing this genuine cause unless women get their due share in the polity of this country, they would not get their due status and adequate security in the country.

Earlier two minute silence was observed to pay tributes to those civilians and Jawans martyred in the Pakistan shelling.

Maoist poster found in Odisha capital threatening to kill missing Kashmiri student

Published

on

Bhubaneswar | March 5 2018
A poster allegedly put up by the Maoists was found at Baramunda bus stand creating panic among locals here this morning.
The poster was put up on the wall under flyover with a message demanding the government to release top Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda, who is currently lodged in jail, in seven days or else the Kashmiri student studying at Bhubaneswar AIIMS Suhail Aijaz, who is missing since Feb 9, will be killed.
The Maoists in the poster said that Suhail is in their custody. If the government fails to release Sabyasachi Panda, they will eliminate the Kashmiri student.
Also, the red rebels through the poster threatened explosions at Bhubaneswar railway station and police stations on March 11 if their demand is not met as soon as possible.
While there is no breakthrough in the missing Kashmiri student and a team of commissionerate police returned Bhubaneswar from Kolkata with clueless about him, the latest poster indicates Maoist link in connection with missing of Suhail, who is yet to be traced by police. The poster posed as a bigger challenge to the police, who are yet to clear the authenticity of the poster.
The twin city commissionerate police is investigating into the matter to find out alleged abduction of Suhail by Maoists and authenticity of the poster.
We recovered a handwritten poster and it is being investigated, said DCP Satyabrata Bhoi.
Normally, the Maoists put up the posters in their letterhead using red ink. However, this poster found at Baramunda bus stand was written in blue ink.
When asked to Sabyasachi Panda’s wife Subhashree alias Mili Panda about the poster, she refused any Maoist role behind putting up the poster at Baramunda bus stand.
She refuted the allegations that Sabyasachi’s supporters were behind the incident. She clearly said that her husband was never the cadre belonging to the banned CPI(Maoist), which has allegedly put up the poster on wall under flyover at Baramunda.
“Since my husband is facing trial and legal process in a series of cases, it is baseless to say that any of his supporters will do such thing to release him from jail,” Mili Panda said.
