New Delhi: A decision on whether the Central Government will extend the time period of Ramzan unilateral ceasefire in J&K, is expected to be taken by Rajnath Singh, when he visits the state on Thursday. The home minister will personally review the situation and get first hand feedback from the forces operating at ground zero.

Acoording to Sources security forces, who were initially worried over the centre’s decision, claim it may be have been a blessing in disguise and the numbers support their stand. In a presentation prepared for Mr Singh, officials will show that though operations were suspended, the number of ‘killings’ and encounters has not come down.

“Operations were never suspended only relief was given to the common people,” Minister of State in PMO Jitender Singh told to news Channel NDTV. Before Ramzan unilateral ceasefire, almost every day at least five cordon and search operations were taking place simultaneously, severely affecting daily lives of the local people.(Agencies)
