He later said that all security agencies were on high alert to deal with militants.

In response to a question, Jaitley said, "With an average citizen, irrespective of his political views, we would like him to be on the Indian side in this debate". Parts of the 740-km long LoC witnessed escalation in tensions following the beheading of two Indian soldiers allegedly by Pakistan army's Border Action Team (BAT) on May 1 and subsequent skirmishes in which several civilians were killed and have forced the border dwellers to desert their shell-hit hamlets, mainly in Rajouri district. Jaitley said its implication in Jammu and Kashmir would save its people, especially the ones dependent on tourism, from paying the double tax as the products and services will get the input credit. Our soldiers are fully confident they will not allow any infiltration in those areas. "They have to be treated as a serious insurgency problem and have to be dealt accordingly".

He said the aspirations of the people have to be addressed but that can be done only when there is peace in the state.

"There are public sentiments in every Indian state and these sentiment will have to be addressed; but at the and of the day. when you take to violence and start killing security forces and your own people, you unleash a cycle that does not stop", the Defence Minister said. You can't have the energy of the state involved in just combating violence at various places.

"This was all being talked about, what your report has done is nearly bring out a confessional statement and the concerned players accepting it. Government agencies will take all steps", he said.

At a meeting with senior Army commanders held at Srinagar's Badami Bagh cantonment on Wednesday, he had asked the Army and other security forces to go all out against militants and terrorists and target them wherever they are in Jammu and Kashmir.
