1-Completely baseless rumours. I refute them with all the responsibility.
2-Many people who don’t have anything meaningful to do are taking support of rumors and emotions to mislead public for their own vested interests. These are baseless and mischievous conspiracy theories circulated by a small section of anti-national elements. Such rumours are also being fanned by certain elements based outside India.
3- People of Jammu & Kashmir are really not cornered about it and they don’t have anything to do with all these rumours.
4-Movement of paramilitary forces doesn’t indicate anything. These personnel were deputed outside J&K for elections. They were in quarantine and now moving to their respective postings. Moreover, there is normal practice of troop movement in anticipation of Amarnath Yatra.
5- We had started registration of Amar Nath Yatra and we stopped it because of COVID. Final decision on Yatra will be taken after proper analysis of the situation. It’s important to save lives of people.On Discrimination Between Jammu & Kashmir.
6- There’s not a single decision in last 11 months that we have taken which indicates discrimination between Jammu and Kashmir. Both are our two eyes and equally vital for us. “That time of discrimination is long gone.”On Assembly Elections.
7- As far as Assembly elections are concerned. People were assured by Hon’ble Prime Minister from the ramparts of red fort and Hon’ble Home Minister in the Parliament that once delimitation is done, elections will be held.
8- DCs of 20 districts have been asked 18 questions regarding delimitation. It means work is going on it.
9- If NC is taking part in delimitation, it means they are performing their constitutional duty. Those who are in Parliament must take part in the process initiated through an act of parliament.On adding NCC in curriculum.
10- “Enough water has flown down the Jehlum”. All govt offices now hoist Tricolor People who were opposed to NCC are now silenced. Tricolor is flying high in the valley.
11- Recently, I met an NCC cadet from Anantnag who was bravely carrying Bharat Mata Flag. The Youth of Kashmir wants change and a new era has started and the youth are embracing it fully.
12. Security Situation: You can see the number of tourists flocking to J&K. Even tourists know there is no security issue. Valley hotels saw advance bookings till April this year before covid second wave hit. Terror related incidents have come down. Forces have upper hand on militants in Valley.
13- There are some standalone terror incidents, deliberately done to vitiate the atmosphere of peace and development. We have taken serious note and perpetrators shall be brought to book. There are a handful people trying to disrupt peace and we’ll ensure they are taken to task.
