PATNA: Anxious over the recent killings of poor street vendors and labourers in Kashmir valley, former Bihar CM and Hindustani Awam Morcha- Secular (HAMS) national president Jitan Ram Manjhi on Monday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah to hand over the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir to Biharis, promising to “fix the terrorists’ problem” within the next 15 days. Manjhi took to his Twitter handle to express his anger over the frequent attacks against poor civilians, especially Biharis, and said if the Union territory is handed over to Biharis for just 15 days, all the problems related to terror attacks will be solved. “I’m deeply upset because our Bihari brothers, who are arm-less, are being killed in Kashmir valley. If PM Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah are unable to improve the situation in Kashmir, then they should leave it to us Biharis, we will turn things around in 15 days,” Manjhi said in a tweet, while making an adverse remark on the Centre’s failure in controlling terror attacks in the Union territory. Manjhi’s HAMS is an ally of NDA in Bihar. Manjhi’s tweet came a day after two labourers from Bihar were killed while a third one was critically injured in Kulgam district in South Kashmir in yet another targeted terrorists’ attack on non-locals in Jammu & Kashmir on Sunday. The brutal incident occurred in Wanpoh area in Laram Gangipora in Kulgam, where the terrorists entered a house where the workers from Bihar were staying and fired on them. Three people from Bihar were hit in the attack, of which two lost their lives on the spot. The two deceased were later identified as Jogendra Rishidev and Raja Rishidev, while the third victim Chunchun Rishidev has been admitted to a government hospital in Anantnag for treatment. Altogether four natives of Bihar were killed in the targeted attacks on non-locals in Kashmir in the last two weeks. Earlier on Saturday, a street vendor Arbind Kumar Sah, a native of Barahat block in Bihar’s Banka district, was killed in a terrorist attack. Arbind used to sell golgappa in Kashmir. On October 5, Birendra Paswan, who hailed from Bihar’s Bhagalpur district, was shot dead in Kashmir by terrorists in a targeted attack on the non-locals.
