Jammu: Home Minister of India Amit Shah on Tuesday said that Paharais will get reservation along with Gujjar Bakerwals as Justice Sharma committee has recommended reservation for Paharis, Gujjars and Bakerwals and it will be accepted.

He also said just three families used to rule Jammu and Kashmir but now the power is with 30,000 people elected to panchayats, district councils of Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing the gathering in Rajouri district of Jammu region, Shah said that today’s rally and the slogans in favour of BJP are an answer to those who used to say that if Article-370 is abrogated, there will be a bloodbath.
