JAMMU, Apr 13: A team of Union Secretaries led by Cabinet Secretary Ajit Kumar Seth today reviewed the security scenario in the State at high level meeting here.

The Central delegation also had a high-level security review meeting at the State Guest House here with officers of the State Government. Senior officers of the Indian Army, paramilitary forces, civil administration, intelligence agencies and senior police officers attended the meeting.

The security situation has been causing concern following recent militancy related incidents including the fidayeen attack at Bemina, Srinagar, in which five CRPF personnel were killed. Two police constables and some civilians have also been killed in the incidents.

The Central delegation was expected to review issues like security scenario within Jammu and Kashmir, especially the Line of Control (LoC), International Border (IB), presence of militants across the border, Rehabilitation Policy and Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).

The Omar Abdullah Government had been pressing for partial revocation of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), a demand that has not found favour with the Defence Ministry and the Indian Army.

The delegation also reviewed centrally sponsored schemes, including Prime Minister's Re-construction Plan and other mega projects, which were funded by the Centre Government in a meeting with Administrative Secretaries of the State and Directors of some important areas.

The meeting chaired by Seth was attended by Defence Secretary Shashi Kant Sharma, Secretary Coordination, Cabinet Secretariat, Alok Rawat, Secretary, Planning Commission Sindhushree Khullar, Additional Secretary, Home K. Skandan and Joint Secretary, Cabinet Secretariat Subash Chandra Garg.

Earlier, the Cabinet Secretary who was heading the delegation met Governor NN Vohra and discussed issues related to security and development.

During an hour long meeting, the Governor and the Cabinet Secretary discussed various issues relating to the implementation of the ongoing major development programmes and welfare schemes. They also discussed matters relating to internal and external security management.

Issues relating to the implementation of the Prime Minister’s Reconstruction Plan, Rehabilitation Package for Kashmiri Migrants, Centrally-Sponsored Schemes and other major infrastructure development projects were also discussed during the meeting.

Other matters which the Governor discussed with Seth related to the to-date implementation status of various hydel power projects in the State, 4-laning of the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, construction of the Udhampur-Katra-Qazigund section of the Jammu-Baramulla Rail Link Project, upgradation of Jammu and Srinagar Airports, quality of school education and delay in elections to Panchayati Raj Institutions and urban local bodies and issues relating to promotion of good governance.

The Central delegation was expected to review issues like security scenario within Jammu and Kashmir, especially the Line of Control (LoC), International Border (IB), presence of militants across the border, Rehabilitation Policy and Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).

The Omar Abdullah Government had been pressing for partial revocation of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), a demand that has not found favour with the Defence Ministry and the Indian Army.

The Governor emphasized the need for constant monitoring of all the important development projects to ensure their time-bound completion so that benefits of various schemes reach the people expeditiously.

Advisor to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on Skill Development, Subramanian Ramadorai, also had a separate meeting with the Governor during which skill development programmes, including Udaan and Himayat and employment opportunities for the educated youth of Jammu and Kashmir were discussed.

Cabinet Secretary Seth earlier called on Chief Minister Omar Abdullah at his residence here. The two are said to have discussed developmental issues of the state during the meeting, including the state government's demand for Rs 30,000 crore worth City Mobility Plan for twin capital cities of Jammu and Srinagar including metro services to refuse traffic congestion. .

Omar Abdullah had taken up this demand with Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram in January this year to cope with the ever-increasing demands of the cities, including metro services to refuse traffic congestion.

The delegation was earlier scheduled to visit here on March 19, but the visit had to be postponed in view of Parliament session in New Delhi and the Budget Session of the State Legislature in Jammu.
