MEERUT: Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that the government is making efforts to resolve the problems being faced in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Assuring the people of the state, Mr Singh said that ‘Kashmir, Kashmiri and Kashmiriyat’ belonged to India.
Mr Singh however, condemned the attacks on soldiers and security personnel saying, “Those who make attempts to hurt the pride of jawans (soldiers) also need to be taught a lesson”.
On purported video clips of Pakistan killing two Indian soldiers, the home minister said the defence forces have several times responded to such provocations and the surgical strikes were one of them.
The senior BJP leader also termed the three-year term of his party-led NDA government as “successful”.
He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had told the 20- nation grouping B20 that India was fighting corruption and terrorism.
In such a condition if they do not provide India with details of Indians who have bank accounts overseas then it would be difficult to check graft, Modi had told B20 leader, Singh said.
“As a result, India now has access to information from foreign countries because of which Indian government would be able to seize black money,” he said. PTI
