BJP President Amit Shah on Monday said that merely abrogating Article 370 will not solve the problem in the valley and NDA government is handling the Kashmir issue ‘diplomatically’.
Amit Shah while speaking at the ‘Samvaad’ conclave organized by India TV, said that India will ultimately ‘prevail’ in Kashmir.
Amit Shah, according to the reports, said the prime minister is keeping a ‘keen eye’ on Kashmir and the security agencies are doing a ‘fine job’ there.
“I believe that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and security agencies’ intervention, India will ultimately prevail in Kashmir,” he said.
Shah also declined to ascribe the recent violence in Kashmir as a reaction against the PDP-BJP alliance government in the state.
“I do not think so. Such incidents are a reaction to the steps taken by the government and action by the security agencies. Whatever lacunae are there will be removed. The alliance is still going on”.
He said that the Kashmir ‘problem’ cannot be solved by merely abrogating the Article 370 in the Constitution that provides for special provisions to Jammu and Kashmir.
“There are several issues and just abrogating the Article 370 will not solve the problem. BJP cannot do it all alone, we will discuss it at an opportune time with others,” he said.
