Kashmir, Kashmiris, Kashmiriyat all belong to India: Rajnath Singh

Sending out a strong message in view of the on-going violence in Jammu and Kashmir, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said the government is making efforts to resolve the Kashmir issue at the earlier, but asserted that “Kashmir, Kashmiri and Kashmiriyat” belonged to India.

Speaking on behalf of the Indian Army, the veteran leader condemned the recent attacks on soldiers in the Valley and warned those who attempt to hurt the pride of the soldiers. Singh was speaking at an event at Subharti Universit on Delhi-Dehradun highway here.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had told the 20-nation grouping B20 that India was fighting corruption and terrorism.

“As a result, India now has access to information from foreign countries because of which Indian government would be able to seize black money,” he said.

On purported video clips of Pakistan killing two Indian soldiers, the home minister said the defence forces have several times responded to such provocations and the surgical strikes were one of them.

The senior BJP leader also termed the three-year term of his party-led NDA government as “successful”.

He asked the elected representatives to keep their doors open round-the-clock for the public. In his 47-minute address, he touched upon issues including demonetisation, farmers’ issues, corruption, economy, foreign policy, among others.
