Mumbai: Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that one will see a “transformed” Kashmir in a year “no matter how the change takes place”.
“You will see a transformed Kashmir in a year. No matter how the change occurs, one thing is certain, that there will be a change in Kashmir in a year’s time,” he asserted.
Jammu & Kashmir is ruled by the BJP-PDP alliance government headed by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
Singh was speaking at the Lokmat Maharashtrian of the Year Awards function in Munbai late last night.
Singh said he “fully agrees” with Army chief General Bipin Rawat’s remarks about dealing sternly with those trying to hinder security forces from performing their duties in Kashmir.
“Those doing such things will have to face the consequences,” he said.
