Srinagar: Today is the last day of Union Home Minister Amit Shah's visit to Jammu and Kashmir. The Home Minister on Monday handed over several schemes to Srinagar. In the meantime, he addressed a rally. Meanwhile, Amit Shah removed the bulletproof glass shield from the platform to show confidence in the people of Kashmir. Amit Shah said, he wants to talk directly to the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Meanwhile, the people present raised slogans in favour of the BJP.
I have come to Jammu and Kashmir for the first time since August 5, 2019, he said. I want to assure you that Jammu and Kashmir will reach new heights of development. In 2024, you will have witnesses to it yourself. The Home Minister said that after Section 370, we had switched off the Internet. Curfew was imposed in the valley. The Opposition alleged why did we do it? Shah explained that if we did not shut down the internet, impose curfew in the Valley, who would have died in the situation that would have been created by inciting the youth, the youth would have died. We didn't want a young man to be shot at.
Home Minister Amit Shah further said that Farooq Abdullah has said that we should talk with Pakistan. If I have to talk to the people, it will be with the people of Kashmir. I have extended a hand of friendship to the youth of Kashmir. We have no ill-will. We promise the development of Jammu, Kashmir and Leh.
