Srinagar: Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that since the abrogation of Article 370, there has been all-round development in Jammu and Kashmir. Shah exhorted the youth of Kashmir to carry pens and laptops instead of stones.

Under previous governments in Jammu and Kashmir, democracy was limited to only 80 to 85 people, Abdullah, Muftis and Gandhi were the only three families who controlled democracy. But now the elected representatives are deciding the future of Kashmir, Shah said.

Speaking at the inauguration of the three-day Vitasta festival in Kashmir, Shah said that Jammu and Kashmir was a controversial and confusing entry in the last four decades for those who knew about history. But now it has emerged as a victorious and peaceful region, he said.

Addressing the youth, Shah said, ‘Those who hand you weapons and stones are never your well-wishers, you should have pens, laptops and books in your hands and not stones’, referring to the stone pelting protests in the past.

Amit Shah said that after the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution, which had given special status to Jammu and Kashmir in 2019, there has been an all-round development.
