“CRPF Security Forces May Not Be Needed In J&K, Northeast Soon”: Amit Shah

Amit Shah praised the efforts of local administrations in Jammu and Kashmir

New Delhi:

Praising the Central Reserve Police Force or CRPF, the country’s largest paramilitary force, Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said in a few years the force may no longer be needed in Jammu and Kashmir and the northeast.

This is the first time the government at the highest level has widely stated the elimination of massive security deployments in Kashmir and also set a timeline to achieve it in a few years.

“The determination that the CRPF has been working on in Kashmir, Naxal and North East regions, I am confident in the next few years, in all three provinces, we may not need the use of CRPF and maintain full peace in the three provinces. I am confident. And if it happens , the entire credit will be given to CRPF, ”Mr Shah said today at the CRPF’s 83rd improvement day parade at the Maulana Azad Srinagar Stadium.

CRPF has a large presence in Kashmir. About a quarter of its total workforce is deployed in the region to deal with militancy and the legal situation.

In addition to the CRPF and J&K police, the Army, BSF, ITBP and SSB are also stationed in Jammu and Kashmir to combat terrorism and law and order duties.

This is the first time the parade has been held outside the CRPF headquarters in Delhi.

The Home Minister said the biggest work being done in Jammu and Kashmir was that the central forces had taken “strict control” against fighting Pakistan -sponsored terrorism.

“I believe the biggest achievement after the repeal of 370 is that the security forces have tight control over terrorism,” Mr Shah said.

The home minister said the situation in the region had improved and spoke of democracy at the grassroots level and an investment of 33,000 crores in J&K.

He also welcomed the efforts of the local administration in fighting corruption and bringing development activities to a new level in the Union Territory.

The repeal of Article 370 in August 2019 resulted in inclusive development of all walks of life, including the deprived, Mr Shah said. Democracy has also been successfully brought to the village level, he said.

The article, which gave special status to the former states of Jammu and Kashmir, was revoked by the Center on August 5, 2019, and the state was split into the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
