Adding to the woes of Jammu and Kashmir Assembly Speaker Dr Nirmal Singh, Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industry — a frontal organisation of traders and industrialists — here on Tuesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “sack him immediately’’ for his utterances against the Indian Army.
Expressing shock and anguish over the recent statement of Singh accusing Indian Army of harassing people, a written communiqué sent by Chamber general secretary Manish Gupta to Prime Minister said, “irresponsible utterances’’ by a person “holding second highest constitutional post in the state’’ against the credentials of the Indian Army was “not in national interest’’.
The communiqué stated that the Chamber or for that matter any Indian will always stand by Indian Army in any given situation and shall not tolerate such statement from anyone whosoever it may be. “By speaking against the army, the Speaker has not only brought a bad name to the pride of Dogras but has also brought a bad name to the political party he belongs to,’’ it said, adding “the Chamber requests your goodself to intervene in the matter and sack him immediately not only from holding this prestigious post but also from the party”.
