“The resolve with which CRPF has been working in Kashmir, Naxal areas and Northeast, I’m confident that within next few years, in all three regions, we may not require use of CRPF and maintain complete peace in three regions. I’m confident. And if it happens, the whole credit goes to CRPF,” NDTV quoted Shah as having said.
The Home Minister said the biggest work done in Jammu and Kashmir is that the central forces have taken “decisive control” of the fight against militancy.
He also lauded the efforts of the local administration in its crusade against corruption and taking developmental activities to new heights in the Union Territory.
The abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019 resulted in inclusive development of all sections of society, including the deprived, NDTV quoted Shah as having said. Democracy has also been successfully taken to the village level, he added.
