Kashmir, NE States to see lasting peace in coming years: Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Saturday that the Northeast, Jammu & Kashmir, and Maoist-affected areas in the country will experience lasting peace in the coming years.
Amit Shah, who was on a two-day visit to Jammu, said this while addressing the CRPF’s 83rd raising day parade at the MA Stadium.
“I am hopeful that in the coming years, the CRPF won’t be required in these areas,” Shah said, addressing the 83rd CRPF Day Parade at MA Stadium in Jammu.
He also described CRPF as indispensable for internal security and said that “they ensure free and fair elections, the essence of democracy”
“CRPF and RAF (Rapid Action Force) control and check riots. I still remember that after riots used to break out, they instilled confidence among the common people. They are seen as saviours.”
He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream was to make India the top performer in all fields by the time the country celebrates the centenary of its Independence.
He also recalled how revocation of Article 370 and 35-A fulfilled the dream of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and Pandit Prem Nath Dogra.
“Their dreams of Ek Nishan, Ek Pradhan and Ek Vidhan were fulfilled following revocation of Article 370,” he said and added that with the revocation of Article 370 ended the discrimination against under-privileged sections including women, West Pak refugees, Gurkha and Valmiki communities.
