New Delhi, October 24

The time for sidelining the people of Jammu has come to an end and now both Kashmir and Jammu will be developed together, Home Minister Amit Shah said on Sunday.

Will protect civilians

The government is aiming that no civilian gets killed in violence and terrorism is wiped out from Jammu and Kashmir. — Amit Shah, Home Minister

“No one will now be able to create any hurdle in the development of Jammu and Kashmir. Investment worth Rs 12,000 crore has already come to the UT. The government is aiming a total of Rs 51,000 crore by the end of 2022 to provide five lakh jobs to the local youth,” Shah said while addressing a rally in Jammu.

He said, “The Modi government is aiming that no civilian gets killed in violence and terrorism is wiped out from Jammu and Kashmir.” This, he said, would be possible if the youth of the Union Territory joined the development process.

The Home Minister is on a three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, his first after the Centre revoked the erstwhile state’s special status and bifurcated it into UTs on August 5, 2019. Earlier, Shah inaugurated the new campus of IIT. He was accompanied by Union Ministers Jitendra Singh and Dharmendra Pradhan and J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha.
