Modi's Silence on Army Attack in Kathua

The Incident

On Monday, five Army soldiers were killed and five injured in an ambush by militants in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir. The attack occurred around 3.30 p.m. when an Army patrol convoy reached Jenda Nallah in Badnota village. The patrolling vehicles were from the Army’s 9 Corps (Rising Star Corps).

A Worrying Trend

This attack coincided with the visit of Chief of Army Staff General Upendra Dwivedi to the area just four days prior. It’s the fourth militancy-related incident in J&K in the past 48 hours. Six militants and two soldiers were killed in south Kashmir on July 6 and 7. Another soldier was injured in an attack in Rajouri on Saturday morning. Earlier incidents in June resulted in multiple casualties, highlighting a rise in militant activities in the Jammu region's twin valleys, Chenab Valley and Pir Panjal Valley.

Modi's Silence

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, currently in Moscow, Russia, has not tweeted or issued any statement regarding the attack. This silence has angered many people, who expected a response from their leader.

Government's Inadequate Response

Critics argue that the Modi government is failing to stop these attacks. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh has only completed the formality of condemning the incident ('ninda'), but no substantial actions or plans have been announced to address the rising militancy.

Public Outrage

The lack of a strong response from the Prime Minister and the government has led to growing frustration and anger among the people. They demand more than just words and are looking for effective measures to ensure the safety and security of the region.
