Jammu: Home Minister of India and Minister of Cooperation Amit Shah on Friday said that a new era of peace has started in Jammu and Kashmir.

Shah said, “After the abrogation of Article 370, there has been a 70% decline in total militancy-related incidents, an 81 per cent reduction in civilian deaths, and a 48 per cent decline in the death of armed forces. This shows that a new era of happiness and peace has begun in Jammu and Kashmir.”

Shah said that now Jammu and Kashmir is going through a phase of change and instead of militancy, bomb blasts, firing, stone pelting and strikes, now studies, schools, colleges, various institutions, industries and infrastructure were being seen here.

He said, “Panchayat elections were held in 2018 in which 74 per cent voting took place, Block Development Council elections were held in October 2019 in which 98% voting was recorded and 3650 Sarpanches were elected in 4483 constituencies. In this way, the Modi government has given an opportunity to 35,000 Panches, Sarpanches and public representatives of local bodies to work in a democracy.”

He launched an e-bus service in Jammu and distributed more than one thousand appointment letters for Jammu and Kashmir Combined Examination-2024 and compassionate appointment through video conferencing from New Delhi.
