No compromise on militancy, ‘peaceful’ Kashmir by winter: Minister

Government of India is working to ensure peace in Kashmir by winter, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir said Thursday, while asserting that there will be no compromise in dealing with militants.

Ahir, who visited some areas along the International Border in Jammu to assess the situation there,  also said that “those coming from Pakistan with guns will not be allowed to go back alive.”

“We are working to ensure peace in Kashmir by winter. It is our commitment to ensure safety and security of the people and also along the borders,” he told media persons, according to a PTI report.

While talking about the government approach towards addressing the problems related to Kashmir, he said, “On August 15, the prime minister had said that we want to embrace the people of the Kashmir and we will not leave them. We are working in this direction.”

The minister said that 6000 transit accommodations will be constructed in Kashmir for employees of Kashmiri Pandits.

“There has been not much progress in this sector. Land has not been acquired. The state government has been asked to speed up the process,” the union minister said.

Asked about the issue of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis, he said, “they have no right to live here. We are finding out opportune time to deport them. This is our duty.”
