Those trying to disrupt J&K peace wont be spared: Shah


Jammu, Oct 24 (UNI) Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday vowed to the people in Jammu, as well as the union territory and the nation, stating that an atmosphere will be created where no blood of innocent will be spilled. Shah in his first public address here after the revocation of Article 370 also said that those trying to disrupt peace in Jammu and Kashmir will not be spared.

“After decades, Jammu and Kashmir is on the path of development and it happened only after the revocation of Article 370,” Shah said at his Bhagwati Nagar rally just a few kilometres away from the borders with Pakistan.

“Jammu and Kashmir has entered into a new era post Article 370 abrogation and I want to make you (people) aware that justice will be done to both the regions and development will be taken to every nook and corner of the Union Territory,” he asserted.

The central government on August 5, 2019, revoked Article 370 and 35-A that provided 'special status' to Jammu and Kashmir that was bifurcated into two Union Territories.

“We want to create an atmosphere that no civilian and innocent get killed,” said Shah stating that many forces have been trying to derail the process of progress in Jammu and Kashmir but it shall not be allowed to happen.

“I reiterate that no lenient approach will be adopted for those who are trying to disrupt peace in Jammu and Kashmir,” said the BJP stalwart.

Shah is on a three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir. He arrived in Srinagar on Saturday and to Jammu on Sunday. He inaugurated the IIT campus at Nagrota in the city outskirts earlier in the day.
