J&K witnesses massive transformation after Article 370 abrogation: Amit Shah

Addresses e-bus service inaugural function in Jammu virtually
Srinagar, Jan 25 : Home Minister Amit Shah Thursday said that after Article 370 was abrogation the Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory has witnessed a massive reformation in all sectors of life. He hailed PM Modi’s efforts of curbing terrorism and paving way to peace and normalcy in the region.
Shah was speaking at e-bus inaugural ceremony held at Jammu. Shah who addressed the gathering virtually was attended by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinah and other top officials of police and civil administration. 
He said since the abrogation of Article 370 the J&K has seen a new phase of peace and development. “The Article 370 was used as a shield by political leaders to continue to politics based on lies. They were saying that abrogation of Article 370 won’t impact J&K affairs, but today everything is visible. Law and order has entirely changed, stone pelting ended, strikes over,” he added.
He hailed the measures taken by PM Narendra Modi in Jammu and Kashmir for peace, prosperity and upliftment of all sections of the society. He said PM Modi has done a praiseworthy job by ending terrorism and separatism in J&K. PM also curbed terror funding channels who were inciting people against government. Further many groups who were having terrorist ideology were banned for the larger interest of the country and its people, he said.
He congratulated the aspirants who received appointment letters during the function, and appealed them to set your direction with commitment and determination as you have started a new journey of life from today.
Home Minister while taking a dig at local political leaders for making J&K a hub of corruption in their regimes said, “Earlier jobs were given through parchi (sufarish) instead of merit, but today there is no room for corruption and you have achieved this milestone through your merit”.
He hailed Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha’s efforts in J&K, saying the way LG Sinha is dealing the situation and taking efforts to slash down the figure of unemployment, the day is not far when we will be able to complete the backlog figure.
“After 370 abrogation, 34,440 posts were filled in Jammu & Kashmir, out of which 24,000 were of defense, 3900 for civil, 2637 in police, and 2436 in bank”, Home Minister said and added, “No corruptive practice was used in filling these posts”.
He said J&K government is taking every possible step to contain practices of corruption and in this regard the authorities have kept services online to ensure corruption-free transactions. “Earlier only 60 services were online but today there are over 1100 services who have been kept online to root out corruption practices in government departments,” he said.(KNS)
