Two days after Home Minister Rajnath Singh met Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and to review the suspension of anti-militancy operations during the month of Ramazan that ended with Eid, Singh announced on Twitter today that there won’t be an extension to ceasefire.
“The operations against the terrorists will resume. The government commends the security forces for having shown exemplary restraint during Ramazan despite grave provocations,” the home minister tweeted.
The Ramzan ceasefire was announced on May 17.
This decision was taken in the interests of the peace-loving people of Jammu and Kashmir, in order to provide them a conducive atmosphere to observe Ramzan, he added.
