Will Speak To The Youth Of Kashmir, Not Pakistan Says Amit Shah Over Visit To Srinagar

This is Amit Shah’s the first time in Jammu and Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019

Mumbai: Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who is on a three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, on Monday asserted that he will talk to the people of Kashmir rather than talking to Pakistan to resolve the issues in the Valley.

“I was taunted, condemned… Today I want to speak to you frankly, which is why there is no bulletproof or security here… Farooq Sahab has suggested me to speak with Pakistan but I will speak to the youth & people of Valley,” said the Union Home Minister, while addressing a gathering in Srinagar.

Shah and Lt Governor Manoj Sinha offered prayers at Kheer Bhawani Durga temple in Ganderbal, right after arriving back in Srinagar. He will inaugurate and lay the foundation stone for various development projects in Srinagar today, concluding his three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir.

Later in the day, the home minister is scheduled to visit a CRPF Camp in Lethpora, Pulwama district. He will have dinner at the camp along with soldiers, and will also do a night halt at the camp.

This is Amit Shah’s first time in Jammu and Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019.

Yesterday, he visited forward areas at the Makwal border in J&K with Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and interacted with soldiers posted there and local residents.

The Union Minister also met with the delegations of Kashmiri Pandits, Gujjar-Bakarwal community, Pahadi community and Jammu and Kashmir Chamber of Commerce in Jammu.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday stated that a new era of development has started in the Union Territory and nobody can stop this development, adding that Jammu and Kashmir are in the heart of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

It should be noted that Shah’s visit to the Union Territory has come amid the targeted killing of civilians by terrorists in J&K.

Yesterday, he also met the family of Deepak Chand, a young teacher who died in a terrorist attack in Srinagar on October 7. On Saturday, he met families of soldiers and civilians killed this month in a spate of terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.
