Agency News

New Delhi, Sep 29 : Taking a jibe on the Opposition on Jammu and Kashmir Issue, the Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday said that there is no curfew or restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir barring eight police stations and the Opposition is spreading misinformation about the state.

At a seminar on National security here, he said “Where are the restrictions? It is only in your mind. There are no restrictions. Only misinformation about restrictions is being spread."

There has been no causality since August 5 and not even a single bullet has been fired in the State. Of 196 police stations only eight have been under restrictions under 144 in which not more than four people can assembled for political procession or any political activities, rest of the areas were the normal and there is no restriction on movement of the people, he added.

About the abrogation of special status under Article 370, Shah further said that the entire world has supported our action and in the next few years the State will become the most developed one of the country.

“Some people have been making hue and cry for mobile connection which has been stopped due to security reasons. But absence of mobile connectivity in the state is not a human right violation”, Mr Shah quipped.

He also said that 10,000 land line connections were given in J&K whereas 6000 PCOs have also been set up after August 5.(UNI)
