GoC Chinar Corps Lt. General BS Raju on Tuesday appealed to the Kashmiri youth to use their energy in a constructive way and not pick up arms as the situation in the valley has improved.
While talking to the media on the sidelines of 74th Infantry Day celebration at Badami Bagh Cantonment in Srinagar, the Lt. General said those who have picked up arms are welcome to surrender and can focus on their lives as there are now ample of opportunities for them.
“The situation has improved (in Kashmir), youth should use it. Young ones should focus on studies, others should work and not choose the wrong path. It’s my appeal- If you’ve picked up arms and shot a video, doesn’t mean you are a terrorist, you can come back,” news agency ANI quoted GOC Chinar Corps as saying.
He also congratulated the infantry jawans deployed in tough terrains and hinterlands. “They can reach where no one,” he said.
