Union Home Minister’s J&K visit

Union Home & Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah reached Jammu on 03 October, 2022 on a three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir. During his visit, Shri Shah addressed two rallies- one in Rajouri district of Jammu region on 04 October and another in Baramulla in north Kashmir on 05 October.

The Union Home Minister wound up his visit with a clear message that the union government led by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi stands for ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ irrespective of caste, creed or religion. Shri Amit Shah said reaching out to all the communities was an indication that the Government of India believes in equality for all and that no one will be left out.

The people giving rousing reception in Rajouri and Baramulla is ample proof of the fact that common men in Jammu and Kashmir has supported all the steps that have been taken by the Modi government at the centre during the past three years, he added. Shri Shah also visited Shri Mata Vaishno Devi shrine in Jammu and Chattipadshai Gurdwara in Srinagar.

Rajouri Rally
Era of Discrimination Ended

Addressing a massive rally in Rajouri, the Union Home Minister assured the Gujjars, Bakarwals and Paharis that the era of discrimination has ended and they would get their due share in jobs and other sectors soon.

He termed the turning of Kashmir from a “terrorist spot” into a “tourist spot” as one of the major achievements of Modi government and assured the people that J&K will keep on flourishing under PM Shri Modi’s leadership.

The Union Home Minister had come to Jammu and Kashmir to tell the people that the government is aware of their needs and stands by them in all their endeavors. His assertion that laptops have replaced stones and strike culture has ended in Kashmir was a snub to all such leaders, who used to claim that Kashmir would burn once Article 370–a temporary provision in the Constitution–is abrogated.
Since August 5, 2019, when Article 370, was abrogated Kashmir has neither witnessed shutdowns nor stone-pelting incidents or protests. A common man has been able to perform his daily chores without any disruptions.

Baramulla Rally
Wipe Out Terrorism

Speaking to the people at a huge rally in Baramulla Shri Shah reiterated that no talks will be held with Pakistan and directed the security forces to wipe out terrorism completely from the Himalayan region. Shri Shah sent a clear message that J&K is a priority for the Centre and leaders of political parties, who ruled J&K for the last 70 years, can no longer dictate terms to New Delhi, nor can they hoodwink the innocent people of J&K as the times have changed.

He announced that assembly elections in the Union Territory would be held as soon as the electoral rolls are finalized. Shri Amit Shah urged the misguided local youth to lay down arms and join the national mainstream and choose life over death.

Reservation for Gujjar, Bakarwal and Pahari

After the abrogation of Article 370, the process for reservation has been cleared. Justice Sharma’s commission has sent the report and recommended reservation for Gujjar, Bakarwal, and Pahari communities and it will be given soon,” said Shri Amit Shah while addressing the rally.

Visits the grave of a martyred policeman

He visited the grave of a martyred policeman, Shri Mudasir Sheikh, and paid floral tributes to him. He met his family members and assured them that they would be provided all the possible support and assistance and that the entire nation stood with them. Shri Mudasir had laid down his life while fighting three Pakistani terrorists in a counter-insurgency operation in Baramulla in May this year.

It was not the first time that the Union Home Minister visited the family of a martyred policeman in Kashmir, whenever Shri Shah has toured the Valley he has reached out to the families of martyrs and expressed solidarity with them. His commitment toward martyrs has strengthened the resolve of Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel to fight terrorism more vigorously and has encouraged them to take the fight against terrorism to its logical end. On the occasion, the Union Home Minister has given clear-cut instructions to the security forces to go after the terrorists and their supporters but has made it clear that no innocent should be harassed or even touched.

Development of J&K

The Home Minister launched and laid the foundation stones of projects worth Rs 2000 crore in Kashmir and Rs 1900 crore in the Jammu region. He said the development projects that were left incomplete by the erstwhile regimes in Jammu and Kashmir have been completed and many new projects have either been dedicated to people or are nearing completion.

As of date, the electricity has reached every village of J&K and consumers are getting power 24×7. For them, the dream of getting electricity round the clock has come true, Shri Shah added.

Upliftment of weaker sections

Shri Shah said the weaker sections of the society who remained deprived of their rights for seven long decades due to the politics played by the former political parties have been provided with multiple benefits. J&K youth, who were lured by the separatists and terrorists, have been provided with all the opportunities to excel in their lives and choose a career through which they can earn their living.
