No power can stop Kashmir from becoming heaven again: Rajnath Singh

Amid Article 35A debate, rising encounters Rajnath begins 4-day J&K tour

He said also that he was upset to see daughter of deceased J-K police personnel, Zohra, crying.

The Union Home Minister said that the nation is indebted to the supreme sacrifices made by the Security Forces and no amount of money can compensate their sacrifice. I do not have words to praise the bravery of our personnel from Jammu and Kashmir police. Rajnath Singh also added that funds have been released to provide bullet proof jackets to Jawans. "But I feel such things are not enough (for JKP) given your work and how you fight for the safety of Kashmir and Kashmiriyat". Rajnath also requested the local people to support the government's efforts to eliminate terrorism from the Kashmir Valley and to help reclaim its earlier title of "heaven on earth".

In politics, people seldom care for those who are out of power, the latest instance being the sad story former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh is all set to encounter on his arrival to Jammu on Sunday on a two-day visit.

The home minister complimented the security forces for their successes against militants in the state over the past few months, and urged them to maintain their guard, he said.


"By observing the strike, the people of Kashmir will prove to the world and the Indian leadership that by using military might against the people or harrasing the leadership, the people's movement in Kashmir can not be crushed", the separatists had said in a statement while calling for shutdown.

Speaking at the Sainik Sammelan at the CRPF base, the minister said its men were born with "unassailable and unmatched courage".

Singh once again stressed that he is willing to have a discussion with anyone with an open mind and he is ready to listen to the problems of the people.

Rajnath and Mehbooba later reviewed the implementation of the Rs 80,000-crore Prime Minister's Development Package for Kashmir at a high-level meeting with officials.
