Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said Kashmir situation improved. He said, Pakistan was continuing with its works and making efforts to break India, but the situation in Jammu and Kashmir had improved significantly.
He also said there was a decline in the incidents of extremism and that the credit for this should go to the followers of Islam in the country.
Speaking at an event organised by a newspaper here today, Singh said, 'Pakistan is continuing with its antics and making efforts to break us, but the co-ordination among our Army, paramilitary forces, the Jammu and Kashmir Police and intelligence agencies has been excellent.'
He said there were 86,000 terror-related incidents in Jammu and Kashmir in 1995, adding that over the last one year, the number of such incidents had come down to 300 in that state.
Stating that there had been a significant improvement in the situation in the restive region, Singh pointed out that the Centre had already appointed a special representative (Dineshwar Sharma) for a dialogue with all the stakeholders in Jammu and Kashmir, including the Hurriyat leaders. 'The special representative will talk to all the stakeholders and recommend to the Government of India as to what should be done to resolve the problems,' he added.
