Extending his visit to Jammu and Kashmir for three days, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday stayed in CRPF Camp in Lethpora in Pulwama. This was the place where 40 paramilitary personnel died in the year 2019 due to Pakistan sponsored suicide bomb attack.
Addressing the security personnel at the CRPF Camp, Amit Shah said that he wanted to understand their problems and want to spend one night with them.
He also reportedly said, “Stone-pelting incidents are only seen when we try to look at them.” He said, there was a time when stone-pelting was very common in Kashmir. However, now, the incidents have decreased to a huge extent. “But I want to say that there is no need to be satisfied,” he added.
Lauding the security forces, he said, “The alertness with which 28,000 jawans and also J-K policemen worked after a major decision (Article 370 and 35A) was taken in nation’s and J-K’s interest, no blood was shed and a new era of development was started in Kashmir.”
