Situation returning to normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir, congratulations to security forces and agencies
Terrorist incidents in Jammu and Kashmir, the number of deaths and the area dominated by terrorists, have decreased a lot, today we can say that Jammu and Kashmir is slowly moving towards a normal situation. There was a time when children from Jammu and Kashmir used to go to study in other parts of the country due to insurgency, but today 32 thousand children from other parts of the country are studying in Jammu and Kashmir, as much investment came in Jammu and Kashmir in the last 70 years Was, that much has come in the last 4 years. Tourists have broken all records in Jammu and Kashmir, more than 1 crore 80 lakh tourists came here in 2022, this shows that the people of the country have a belief that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir is normal, for this I congratulate the security forces and all the agencies.
AFSPA removed from about 30 percent area in Northeast
9 militant groups in the Northeast have surrendered and come into the mainstream, border disputes between states are being resolved among themselves. We have done the work of removing AFSPA from about 30 percent of the area in the North East without any demand, taking stock of the situation becoming normal, there has been a reduction of 42 percent in all kinds of violence in the last 3 years. In 2010 there were 96 LWE affected districts, now there are 46 left, 72% of the security vacuum has been filled, I am sure we will make it 100% by 2024, the death rate and surrender are coming down in LWE affected areas are increasing.
Counter-terror laws further strengthened under PM Narendra Modi’s policy
Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policy of zero tolerance against terrorism, we have strengthened counter-terror laws, due to which terrorist incidents have decreased and conviction rate has increased. Forensic investigation has been made mandatory in crimes with punishment of more than 6 years, Delhi Police has started implementing it, it is expected that the police of other states will also implement it. The coming together of the police forces of all the states to achieve success in banning PFI and arresting its activists shows the true spirit of the federal structure and the maturity of democracy.
