Stone pelting history, local terrorist recruitment all-time low in J&K: LG Manoj Sinha
Says gone are those days when neighbouring country would dictate J&K, issue hartal calendars
Jammu, Feb 20 : Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Tuesday said that gone are those days when people from the neighboring country would issue protest and hartal calendars. LG made these remarks while addressing a public rally at Moulana Azad Stadium Jammu.
He praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for inaugurating development projects and bringing Jammu and Kashmir to new heights.
“Jammu and Kashmir is said touching new heights under the leadership of PM Modi and gone are the days, when people from the neighboring country would issue protest and hartal calendars,” Lieutenant Governor said.
He said youth of Jammu and Kashmir in past were misled by anti-national elements for their cheap politics but today they are following calendars of Universities and Schools.
Lieutenant Governor said that the decision of August 5, 2019 ended terrorism, separatism and injustice forever and paved way for peace, prosperity and development for J&K and its people. He said due to abrogation of Article 370 the downtrodden and displaced sections of the society got their rights first time.
“Panchayat polls would have been done but there was a reservation pending for the Pahari community. Pahari community people have been given their rights without touching the rights and reservation of Gujjar and Bakerwal community," Lieutenant Governor said.
He said that Panchayat polls will be held in time and efforts are on in this direction.
Lieutenant Governor Sinha praised Prime Minister Modi for active support in the path of peace and development for J&K. “J&K is on the path of peace and development due to active support of PM Narendra Modi. There is 75 per cent decline in the terrorism related incidents, stone pelting is a history, local terrorist recruitment is at an all-time low. Nightlife has returned to Kashmir and Cinemas are functional. People are spending time late at night on Jehlum river fronts and time is not far when people of Jammu will spend time on the River Tawi," the LG said. (
