“If 45,000 youth are engaged in the service of the poor of Jammu and Kashmir, then terrorists cannot harm anything and these youths will change Jammu and Kashmir within no time,” Mr Shah said.

On the second day of his tour to the union territory after the abrogation of Article 370, Shah was addressing a public rally in Jammu.

Quoting figures of the declining terror-related deaths of civilians in J&K after the BJP government came to power, the Home Minister said; “We are aiming that no civilian gets killed in violence and terrorism is wiped out from Jammu and Kashmir.”

Mr Shah said that the era of injustice to the residents of Jammu is over and now no one can cause any injustice to them. You have faced injustice for years but now Jammu and Kashmir will develop together and both will take India forward together.

He said that the era of development which is starting here today, is being disturbed by disruptive elements. But I assure you that no one will be able to stop the development of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Union Home Minister said that on 5 August, 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a historic decision, ended Articles 370 and 35A which were in effect for many years and lakhs of citizens of Jammu and Kashmir received their rights. Earlier people did not have the right to buy land, refugees did not have rights, people did not get reservation. But, now no one has to fear, because all the rights under the Indian Constitution are available to everyone. Women were also given their rights. To protect the interests of workers, the Minimum Wage Act was implemented, the Safai Karamcharis Act was implemented, to protect the rights and interests of the Dalits and tribals and to stop the atrocities, land was leased to tribals and this right was also given by the Narendra Modi government.

Mr Shah said that today many schemes have been inaugurated. There was a time when there were only four medical colleges in Jammu and Kashmir and today seven new medical colleges have been established in Jammu and Kashmir, out of which five have started. Earlier there were 500 medical seats, now 2,000 students pursue their MBBS degree and no one needs to go anywhere. I have not seen a modern IIT campus like the one which has been inaugurated here today.

Discussions were also held about how IITs, IIMs and AIIMS will complement each other by creating new types of courses together. There was also a discussion on the training of children from Jammu and Kashmir by opening a satellite campus so that more children from Jammu and Kashmir can be admitted to the IIT.

Apart from this, 25,000 government jobs have been given by the Service Selection Board, out of which 7,000 people have been given appointment letters today.  
Mr Shah said that investment will help create 5 lakh new jobs. So far, land has been allotted for an investment of Rs. 7,000 crore in Jammu and Rs. 5,000 crore in Kashmir. He said that when we announced the new industrial policy, three families, who have exploited you for years, used to ask who would come here. But it is the magic of Narendra Modi that till now an investment of Rs.12, 000 crore has been received and before 2022 an investment of around Rs. 51,000 crore will be received.

With this, 5 lakh youth of Jammu will get jobs. 9 medical colleges, 15 nursing colleges, IITs, NITs, IIMs, NIFT, IIMC, two Cancer Institutes, polytechnics, B.Sc nursing colleges, many institutes have been built and started here.

The Home Minister also said three families asked me that what you will give to the people here. I have come with an account of what we will give, but what have you three families who ruled for 70 years given, show what you have done. The people of Jammu and Kashmir are demanding to know what you did for them.  

Mr Shah today inaugurated the new campus of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Jammu. The new campus of IIT Jammu, built at a cost of Rs. 210 crore, provides all facilities like good hostels, a gymnasium and indoor games along with higher education to students.

Mr Shah also inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of various development projects for Jammu and Kashmir. Several dignitaries including the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Manoj Sinha, Union Education Minister, Dharmendra Pradhan and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, Jitendra Singh were also present on the occasion.

Recalling the party stalwart Pandit Prem Nath Dogra on his birth anniversary, Shah said people of India can’t forget him. He along with Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee gave the slogan of ending the special status of J&K under which the erstwhile state had a separate Constitution, flag, and PM.
