Union Interior Minister Amit Shah said on Sunday that the time to remove Jammu residents has come to an end, and now Kashmir and Jammu will develop together. The Shah is on a three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, his first visit after the Center revoked the special status of the former state and split it into union territories on August 5, 2019.
Addressing a rally in the Bhagwati Nagar area, the Minister of Internal Affairs said that now no one can create any obstacles to the development of Jammu and Kashmir.
He said the union has already received 12,000 crores of investment and the government plans to receive a total of 51,000 crores by the end of 2022.
He stated that if young people join the development of Jammu and Kashmir, the terrorists will fail in their sinister scheme.
The interior minister said the government is committed to ensuring that no civilians are killed by violence and terrorism is destroyed in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Shah arrived at the crowded rally to thunderous applause and slogans from the people.
Police and paramilitaries were deployed in and around the venue.
