New Delhi, December 4

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said Kashmir was witnessing peace, good business investment and influx of tourists post the abrogation of Article 370 in 2019.

He also said Prime Minister Narendra Modi ensured an optimum utilisation of resources to successfully fight oxygen shortage during the second wave of coronavirus in the country.

Delivering his keynote address during a Leadership Summit here, Shah said the country had given a strong reply to the cross-border terrorism perpetrated by Pakistan, "hitting it in its house" by way of surgical strikes conducted by defence forces.

No one believed that Article 370 and 35A could be repealed but Prime Minister Narendra Modi did it in 2019, he said.

"I can say that there is peace now in Kashmir, investment is coming and tourists are flocking to the place."        

"Kashmir slowly is getting back to normal to stand in unity with the country," he said.

He said the Modi government made it clear through its armed surgical strikes into Pakistan that breaching Indian borders was not that easy. This feat till now was only known to be done by Israel and the US but India also now is in that list.

"We want peace with everyone... the security of our borders is our top priority and we have given a definite and loud message in this context."

"Due to this, India now has a different acceptance in the world," he said. PTI
