Modi govt committed to make J&K free from terrorism, corruption: Shah

Jammu: Stating that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government in the Centre wants to make Jammu and Kashmir number one with regard to development in the country, Union Home and Cooperatives Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday said that the Cenre is committed to end corruption and terrorism from the Union Territory.
BJP is a party which fulfil its promises and under the leadership of PM Modi, Centre committed to end terrorism and corruption, said Shah.
He was addressing a gathering here at Convention Centre after laying foundation stones and inaugurating developmental works worth Rs 2200 crores.
Stating that the government has adopted zero tolerance policy for terrorism, the Home Minister said, “42,000 people lost their lives to terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. The situation was so bad that even newspapers did not carry news about the killing of 2-5 persons as it had become a routine affair. However, after the PM Narendra Modi government took over the security situation improved now to such an extent that no one dares to call hartal or indulge in stone-pelting.
Enlisting the developmental works done in the last three years, Shah said Modi has focused on this region.
“Jammu as well as Kashmir got AIIMS, NIT and IIT, students of Jammu and Kashmir have ample higher education intuitions, which was not possible earlier,” he said adding, “PM Modi gave laptops in the hands that held stones (stone-pelting).”
He added that a record-breaking 50 lakh tourists have visited Jammu and 22 lakh tourists have visited Kashmir in recent months.
Coming down heavily on the opposition in Jammu and Kashmir, Shah said earlier just three political families used to rule the erstwhile state, but now power is with people.
“J&K’s three political families are responsible for its backwardness. J&K lagged behind on all development parameters due to their alleged misrule,” Shah said, adding, “But the situation changed after 2014 as the Modi government gave priority to Jammu and Kashmir’s development, and it is progressing well now”.
