Early Times Report
Srinagar, June 11: Home Minister Amit Shah is likely to arrive in Jammu and Kashmir within few days to take stock of the preparations put in place for the smooth conduct of Amarnath Yatra commencing from July 1.
Soon after he was sworn in as the country's Home Minister, Shah chaired a series of meetings on Jammu and Kashmir in Delhi to get the fresh feedback of the situation prevailing on ground zero.
Reliable sources told Early Times that Shah has decided to visit Jammu and Kashmir between 12 to 15 June to assess the situation himself. "He is likely to chair the meeting of unified headquarters in Srinagar where Governor S P Malik and heads of all the security agencies are expected to participate. Shah has also sought the power point presentation of the security plan framed for the smooth conduct of annual pilgrimage of Amarnath commencing from July 1," the sources said.
Shah's visit is also significant as with 48 hours of assuming the office of the home minister, he took multiple steps related to Jammu and Kashmir.
Also, CRPF DG gave him a presentation regarding Amarnath Yatra, which was majorly handled by the CRPF. The government is gearing up for Amarnath Yatra - a 46-days-long pilgrimage that commences on July 1. It is also expected that Shah's trip would be of two days where he will meet security forces personnel.
Shah has, no doubt, emerged as the deputy of Modi in the government and the second most powerful minister. An official in the Union Home Ministry said that Shah will apprise the security top brass in Kashmir about his fresh policy vis-à-vis Kashmir and pass certain direction for ensuring peace in the region.
"The Home Minister will also seek information from the security heads about the status of militancy and infiltration in Kashmir and the measures taken to deal with it so far," the official said.
Pertinently, soon after Shah took over, the MHA issued a fresh list of top 10 wanted militants with Hizbul Mujahideen commander Reyaz Naikoo topping the list. Sources said that Shah may seek opinion from the political parties about his plans of going for the delimitation of Assembly seats. Bhartiya Janata Party leadership in New Delhi have been crying hoarse that Jammu region was facing discrimination as far as Assembly seats were concerned. "Jammu region has 29 lakh voters and Kashmir 31 while as Valley has more seats than Jammu. Isn't it a big discrimination," a BJP leader asked.
