From ‘Terrorist Hotspot’ To ‘Tourist Hotspot’: Amit Shah In Baramulla

Baramulla: Home minister Amit Shah said Modi’s model of governance has transformed the Valley from a “terrorist hotspot” to a “tourist hotspot” while addressing a rally in Baramulla on Wednesday.

“Earlier, this was a terrorist hotspot, now it’s a tourist hotspot. Increasing tourism in J&K has given employment to a number of youth here,” the home minister said at the gathering.

While speaking to the gathering he also dismissed plans to hold any dialogue with Pakistan and said, “Some people say we should talk to Pakistan. Why should we talk to Pakistan? … We will talk to the people of Baramulla, we will talk to the people of Kashmir.”

The home minister said that elections will be held in Jammu and Kashmir with complete transparency as soon as the voter list compilation is complete.

Earlier in the day, Shah chaired a security review meeting with senior officials in Srinagar. Today is the last day of his visit to the union territory – the second since the abrogation of Article 370.
