Ahead of Republic Day, Jammu and Kashmir has been cordoned off. But in the last 24 hours three explosions took place in Jammu. The third blast took place at midnight on January 21 at Baljata in Sidhra, Jammu. Even in this situation, Congress leader and parliamentarian Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is going on. The journey started from Hiranagar in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district at around 7 am yesterday amid tight security.
9 people were injured in twin blasts in Jammu’s Narwal on 21st morning. That day at midnight there was another explosion at Baljata Sidhra Chowk. A total of 10 people including a police constable were injured in that incident. According to the police, police constable Surinder Singh was on duty at Sidhra Chowk on the 21st night. He stopped a sand truck for a search. At that time suddenly the urea tank burst. Some parts of the policeman’s body were burnt. He is undergoing treatment at the Government Medical College Hospital. According to hospital sources, Surinder’s condition is stable.
After preliminary investigation, the police said that the explosion was purely an accident. Nagrota police station registered a case under Explosives Act and started investigation.
No plan for suspension of the rally
Security for Rahul’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ has been beefed up due to three consecutive blasts. Congress reiterated yesterday that there is no plan to suspend the Yatra due to the explosion. Hundreds of people joined Rahul on the journey yesterday. Rahul was accompanied by the party leadership of Jammu and Kashmir including state Congress president Vikar Rasool Wani. ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ crossed about 22 kilometers yesterday. The journey ended for yesterday at Sambar Duggar haveli.
Rahul spent last night at Nanak Chowk. Today ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ will go from Vijay Chowk to Satwari Chowk. Rahul will address a rally in Jammu city today at one o’clock.
BJP is constantly attacking Rahul about the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ of Congress. In Bhopal yesterday, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh alleged that Rahul is spreading hatred among people to grab power. He commented, “Rahul ji, you are spreading hate to get power! No one can get power by spreading hate. You can’t be in power without people’s trust and love.” The Defense Minister also alleged that this Congress Parliament is tarnishing the image and pride of the country.
Concerns about cyber attacks were discussed at the DGP conference
As the use of technology is increasing, cyber attacks and corruption are also increasing. It is feared in the 57th DGP conference that cyber corruption will overtake all corruption in the coming days. To prevent this, the Center has advised each state to develop infrastructure separately. In yesterday’s meeting, Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasized on building a sensitive police force through coordination between the Center and the states.
Since demonetisation, digital transactions have increased in the country. Along with this, cyber corruption is increasing. As customers of various banks are victims of cyber fraud, the country’s security system, education, health and other research institutions are in danger due to cyber attacks.
