Srinagar: Governor’s advisor on Home affairs K Vijay Kumar on Monday rejected the rumours that troop movement in Kashmir was connected to any pending announcement.
Talking to reporters on the side lines of a function, Kumar dismissed the various government orders, which have gone viral on social media, pertaining to induction of 10,000 troops and other info as a rumour mongering.
“If somebody is causing panic or rumour on social media, then I shouldn’t be countering it as it won’t be proper. But all I am trying to say is what is the sources of this rumour. Somebody saying that extra security forces are coming.”
“I have already clarified that it is a deliberate and calculated response to the security grid which is available here. There was an addition or reduction of the security grid due to our focus on Amarnath yatra. Therefore, the need arose to requisition little more forces. It is a part of the plan which is in the pipeline,” Kumar said.
“There are so many things happening on social media. So for us to react to everything it will give strength to these people (rumour mongers),” he added.
