House Dems file impeachment articles against Trump, over party leaders' objections
The six Democrats called for impeachment on the grounds that Trump "undermined the courts and the press", according to Turley. And his attacks on "so-called" judges and "fake news" have undermined public confidence in the judiciary and the press.
On the occasion, the DGP of J&K Police, Dr Shesh Paul Vaid told reporters that after Saturay's operation in Hajin, the area has been cleared of Lashkar militants. Fortunately yesterday's operation has cleaned up the area and people will live free of terror.
The security forces were keeping a watch on the Chandergeer area where the encounter took place, he said.
"Our concern is to eliminate militancy and give a chance to locals to return to the mainstream", he said. The local terrorists must realize whether they are "Mujahids" (Islamic fighters) or proxies of Pakistan. "Simultaneously, we want the local militant to return to the mainstream", he said. "If they come back, we will accept them with honour", Sandhu said.
The CRPF has launched a helpline "Madadgar" with phone number 14411 where the militants, their family members or friends can contact to facilitate any surrender.
