Article 370 abrogation will ensure peace in Kashmir: Amit Shah

Gurugram: The abrogation of Article 370 provisions is a “decisive battle” waged by the Narendra Modi government to end years of Pakistan-sponsored proxy war and terrorism, and it will bring long-lasting peace in Jammu and Kashmir, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Tuesday.

Shah was at the 35th Raising Day celebrations of the counter-terror force NSG as the chief guest.

The minister said his government is firm on the policy of “zero tolerance” on terrorism and to defeat all its forms.

“I believe that with the abrogation of Article 370 by PM Narendra Modi, we have initiated a decisive battle against years of proxy war and terror acts perpetrated by our neighbour (Pakistan) and this step will ensure long-lasting peace in Kashmir and the region,” Shah said at the NSG garrison in the Manesar area here.
