Srinagar: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has expressed concern that some forces want to mislead the innocent youth of Jammu and Kashmir and they don’t want the situation to change.
Expressing his agony, he said while their own children obtain the education, others are misled to take up stones and asked what kind of justice was that.
Addressing a press conference here, Home Minister said that he appeals from the bottom of his heart that the youth of J&K should be considered as their own children and no one should be allowed to play with their future. They are not only children of J&K but of India, he added. So, the decision was taken to withdraw about 10,000 cases against first-time offenders of stone pelting, he said.
Rajnath Singh said the Centre appointed a Special Representative who visited J&K eleven times. He appealed to the people to come forward for peace. Talks can happen with anyone and they need not be like-minded, but they should be right-minded, he asserted.
He said Pakistan should stop cross-border terrorism and can take help from neighbors if it was not able to do so alone. He added some want to destabilize India, but they cannot stop India’s economic progress.
