Mumbai, Oct 27 : Top military officers paid homage to the infantry fraternity who died for the country in Jammu and Kashmir on the 70th Infantry Day celebrations here on Thursday.

Major General Anuj Mathur, officiating General Officer Commanding – Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa areas – led all the officers of the Military Station in Colaba to lay wreaths.

It was on October 27 and 70 years ago that the first and finest team of Indian infantry landed in Srinagar and defended Jammu and Kashmir from falling into Pakistani hands.

That day, an Infantry Company of the First Battalion of the Sikh Regiment was airlifted from Delhi to Srinagar to liberate Jammu and Kashmir from invading tribals supported by the Pakistan Army.

The action was ordered by then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru after the ruler of Jammu and Kashmir, Maharaja Hari Singh, signed the Instrument of Accession, acceding the state to India.

The infantry has remained at the forefront in the entire spectrum of activities since then, from maintaining vigil along the border to combating insurgency.

Besides, they help fellow citizens during natural calamities or help restore peace in foreign countries as part of UN peacekeeping missions.

Put farm laws on hold or we will do it, Chief Justice Bobde tells government

New Delhi, 11 Jan : A Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice S. A. Bobde on Monday toughened its stand on the farm laws and said the court has made up its mind to stay the implementation of the three farm laws, which have led to the protest by thousands of farmers at various Delhi borders.

“What is going on? States are rebelling against your laws”, a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde told the Centre. “We are extremely disappointed with the negotiation process,” he said.

“If the Centre does not want to stay the implementation of farm laws, we will put a stay on it,” the CJI added.

“We don’t want to make any stray observations on your negotiations but we are extremely disappointed with the process,” said the bench, also comprising Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.

The apex court, which was hearing a clutch of pleas challenging the new farm laws as well as the ones raising issues related to the ongoing agitation at Delhi borders, said it is not talking about the repeal of these farm laws at the moment.

“This is a very delicate situation,” the bench said, adding, “There is not a single petition before us which says that these farm laws are beneficial.”

“We will stay implementation of laws,” the CJI said. “You can carry on the protest. But the question is whether the protest should be held at the same site,” he added.

“Some people have committed suicide, old people and women are a part of the agitation. What is happening?” he said.
