Militancy in Kashmir has been at a minimum level after the repeal of Article 370, Union minister Prakash Javadekar said Saturday, describing the first six months of the Modi government's second term as dedicated to development and security of the country.
Javadekar said India has had a little impact of the global economic slowdown and efforts to recover from it too have been hastened by the government.
The information and broadcasting minister said the Modi government completes six months of its second term today, with the country moving fast on the path of progress.
Citing various landmark decisions and work done in the first six months of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's second stint, Javadekar said repeal of Articles 370 and 35A has paved the path of peace in Kashmir.
"In the four months since repeal of Article 370 and 35A, militancy is at a minimum level. Earlier, militancy was dominant but now it has taken a backseat. This is a tremendous change and the public life is now systematic," Javadekar said at a press briefing.
New avenues have also been opened for development of Jammu and Kashmir, he said. (PTI)
