New Delhi, February 26

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said that August 6, 2019 was a historic day for Jammu and Kashmir when the Parliament of India decided to abrogate Article 370 of the Constitution. With this, all the constitutional safeguards enjoyed by the citizens of the country were extended to Jammu and Kashmir including progressive laws like Right to Education, National Minorities Commission Act, etc.Shah said this while presiding over a meeting of the Parliamentary consultative committee of home affairs in Daman.

The abrogation of Article 370 has proved to be a transformational phase in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which has seen wide-ranging changes in development, security and socio-economic dimensions, Shah said, adding that stone pelting and organised strikes have become a thing of the past.

During the discussion on Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs), the home minister said that the government is committed to ensure a safe and secure India.

He reiterated the splendid work done by the CAPFs in maintaining law and order in dealing with issues of internal security and guarding of the International Border.

Shah further emphasised that the welfare of CAPFs personnel and their kin is the top priority of the government.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has decided that from 2024 the constable (General Duty) examination for CAPFs will be conducted in 13 regional languages in addition to Hindi and English.
