India will respond at place, time of choosing: Army on Uri

New Delhi, Sep 19: India reserved the right to respond to cross-border terror strike “at a place and time of our choosing”, the army said on Monday, a day after an attack on a military base in Jammu and Kashmir that killed 18 soldiers was blamed on Pakistan.

The Director General Military Operation (DGMO), Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh, told reporters here that the army had recovered more articles from the possession of four militants who were killed after they attacked the army camp near the garrison town of Uri, close to the Line of Control (LoC) — a de facto border with Pakistan.

Among the arms and ammunition recovered from the dead militants were 39 UBGL grenades, five hand grenades, two radio sets, two GPS devices, two maps and “large quantities of food and medicines with Pakistani markings on them”, the DGMO said. He said there had been 17 infiltration bids from across the border with Pakistan in 2016. They were foiled, leaving 110 terrorists dead. At least 31 of them were killed while crossing the LoC, he said.

“This indicates a desperate attempt from across the border to push infiltrators and create disturbances in India. Infiltration attempts have increased in the last two years,” he said. “We reserved the right to respond at a place and time of our choosing. We have the desired capability to reply to such blatant act of violence in a manner as deemed appropriate by us.”

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.
