First Delimitation, Then Statehood: Amit Shah

SRINAGAR: Union home minister Amit Shah said on Saturday Jammu and Kashmir’s statehood will be restored after delimitation, Hindustan Times reported.

“First delimitation, then the restoration of Jammu and Kashmir’s statehood – that will be the process. But whoever says otherwise, is trying to create confusion,” Amit Shah said while speaking during a session moderated by Shashi Shekhar, the editor-in-chief of Hindustan, on the final day of HTLS 2021.

“Article 370 has been in Kashmir for 75 years, Why was there no peace? There is peace in Kashmir after the revocation of Article 370. The tourism is up,” Hindustan Times quoted Shah as having said.

The home minister also said that Kashmir is being prioritised for social welfare programmes in India and citizens of the Union territory have welcomed the change.
