“Decisive control over ‘militancy’ our biggest achievement post abrogation of article 370.”

JAMMU — Home Minister of India Amit Shah Saturday said the biggest achievement of the government of India after the ‘unilateral’ abrogation of erstwhile state’s special status in J&K was that for the first time “we have a decisive control over terrorism.”

He said the J & K government has successfully managed to ensure over Rs 33000 Cr investment while democracy has been taken to grass-roots level in UT. Addressing the CRPF’s 83rd Raising Day in Jammu, the Union Home Minister said that the biggest achievement post abrogation of Article 370 was that “today we have a decisive control over terrorism.”

“Apart from this, the J & K government has managed to ensure over Rs 33000 Crore investment in the UT. Today, democracy is flourishing across J&K as we have Sarpanch and Panch in every village. National Highways are being upgraded and all modern means are being employed to uplift J&K,” the Home Minister said. “In every segment, record achievements are being made.”

The Union Home Minister said that J&K’s seven new medical colleges and two AIIMS will be functional soon while all efforts have been made to provide corruption-free government to the people.

While praising CRPF, Shah said that be it maintaining law and order, fighting terrorism in J&K, or eliminating Naxalites, the force has maintained its tag of being the country’s best police force. “We will never forget the valour and courage of this force. The great sacrifices made by CRPF men in the line of duty will be written with golden hearts and the families of martyrs will never be left alone,” he said.
