Vaid’s report advised against J&K polls

The Centre’s decision to hold elections to urban local bodies and panchayats in Jammu and Kashmir has come despite negative reports submitted to the Union Home Ministry by the J&K police on the ground situation. Meanwhile, in a sudden spike in violence, four panchayat buildings were set on fire in south Kashmir since Monday. The police report submitted by former Director General of Police (DGP) S.P. Vaid in the last week of August suggested that “the situation was not conducive to hold any election in Kashmir valley right now”. In a rare move, DGP Vaid was transferred unceremoniously on September 7 by the administration of Governor Satya Pal Malik and posted as Transport Commissioner. Mr. Vaid has gone on long leave, apparently in protest. Ever since PM Narendra Modi announced the elections in his Independence Day speech, the State CID reports to the State Police Headquarters thrice used the phrase “situation not conducive to elections”.
Buildings set ablaze
Police said on Tuesday that two panchayat buildings in Tral, one in Pulwama and one in Shopian, were set ablaze by unknown persons. A senior officer said FIRs have been lodged.
