The time of sidelining people of Jammu is ending soon, said Union home minister Amit Shah addressing a public rally there, adding that both Kashmir and Jammu will develop together. No hurdle can come in the development of Jammu and Kashmir, Shah added at the rally in the Bhagwati Nagar area.
He further stated that if the youth work for the development of J&K, terrorists will fail in their objectives, asserting how the union government remains committed in its effort to ensure that no civilian is killed in the violence.
Terrorism will be wiped out from Jammu and Kashmir, he added.
“No one will be able to create any hurdle in the path of development of Jammu and Kashmir. Investment of Rs 12,000 crore has already come and we aim at achieving a total of Rs 51,000 crore by the end of 2022. If the youth work for development, terrorists will fail in their sinister design. We are aiming that no civilian gets killed in violence and terrorism is wiped out from J&K,” Shah said.
Amit Shah’s statement comes a day after two policemen and an Army soldier were injured in the battleground between security forces and militants in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district. The policemen and Army soldiers had come under attack when they were taking Zia Mustafa, a Pakistan-based militant connected with Lashkar-e-Taiba, to the forest area to find the militant hideout in Bhata Durian.
Earlier on Sunday, Amit Shah inaugurated a new compass of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Jammu.
Jammu is a land of temples and Mata Vaishno Devi shrine, which is also the birthplace of Pt Prem Nath Dogra and the place of martyrdom of Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, Shah said adding, “those trying to disrupt peace and development in Jammu and Kashmir will not be allowed to succeed.”
This is the Home Minister's first visit to Jammu and Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019.
Amit Shah said, “This area is witnessing an era of development and some are trying to cause disruptions. However, I have come here to tell you that nobody will be able to disturb the era of development in Jammu and Kashmir. No one will be able to stop it.”
Amit Shah was accompanied by union ministers Dharmender Pradhan and Dr Jitendra Singh as well as the UT’s Lt Governor Manoj Sinha, on Sunday for the inaugural ceremony and foundation of stones of various projects worth Rs 15,000 crore.
“The days of discrimination against Jammu are gone. Nobody can do injustice now. The development will take place simultaneously in Jammu and Kashmir. Both will progress together and contribute to taking the country ahead,” he said.
