Expressing hope that the year 2018 would be less troublesome, the J&K Police chief has said that Valley is fast limping back to normalcy.
Talking during the sidelines of a function, the top cop, however, maintained that ‘Operation all-out’, an offensive launched by the government forces against militants, would continue till there was complete peace in the state.
Replying to query on the possible impact on the state after the killing of over 200 militants under the operation last year, Dr Vaid said: “the people of Kashmir will feel peace very soon.”
“The credit for the success (in killing over 200 militants this year) goes to the soldiers and officers of the security forces who worked hard during the operation, especially those who sacrificed their lives,” the DGP said.
In reply to another question, Vaid said, “I do not think the next year will be challenging like this one. The next year will be better”.
