Governor’s rule in J&K not to affect anti-terror operations says Army chief

Governor's rule in J&K not to affect anti-terror operations says Army chiefNEW DELHI: The imposition of governors rule in Jammu and Kashmir will not affect anti-terror operations, Army chief General Bipin Rawat said on Wednesday and noted that there was no political interference.
"The imposition of Governor's rule will not affect our operations. Our operations will go on like they used to. We don't face any political interference," he said.
"Operations were being carried out earlier as well. Then we saw a phase of suspension of operations because we wanted people to get a chance to offer their prayers during Ramzan without any kind of problem. Despite that, terrorists continued with their activity, which is why the suspension of operations was cancelled," he said.
The security forces have very strict rules of engagement and "take action" in accordance with them, Rawat said.
The ceasefire announced by the Centre for the month of Ramzan was revoked on Sunday. Aurangzeb, an Army jawan, was killed by terrorists and journalist Shujaat Bukhari was shot dead two days ahead of Eid.
Today, Jammu and Kashmir was placed under Governor's rule for the fourth time in the last one decade after the BJP withdrew support to its alliance partner, prompting Mehbooba Mufti to resign as chief minister.
