New Delhi: In Modi Government, Home Minister Amit Shah termed the decision to abolish Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir a very difficult decision and said that it becomes imperative to take some bold decisions for the benefit of the people. Addressing trainee officers of the 2018 batch Indian Police Service in Maharashtra Sadan here, Amit Shah said that after the removal of Section 370, not a single shot was fired and not a single person was killed.
Amit Shah said that out of the 196 police station areas of Kashmir, only 10 have Section 144. The Home Minister has said that Jammu and Kashmir will not always be a union territory. After the situation becomes normal in Kashmir, it will be made a state again. Home Minister Amit Shah stressed the need for a National Registration of citizens and said that it is not only necessary for national security but also for better administration.
Amit Shah said that "after the implementation of NRC, it will be easy to formulate policies in the interest of the country". Amit Shah said that "it is unfortunate that NRC is being called a political move by some opposition parties. It is not a political but a constitutional step so that the benefits of development reach all citizens".
