NSA Ajit Doval interacts with people in J&K over lunch, takes stock of situation


Two days after the Centre scrapped Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval on Wednesday visited Shopian (J&K) and met with some local people as part of his visit for an assessment on the situation in the state.

Doval was seen interacting with a few people in a shut-down market over food and inquired about their well being. He also assured them that their welfare was the government’s prime concern.

“Yes, everything will be fine. Everyone should live peacefully. Whatever the almighty does is good. Your security and well being is our only concern. We are thinking about the growth and welfare of your generations,” the NSA said.


Later he also met with security personnel and with the personnel of Jammu and Kashmir police.

“The Whole country is proud of CRPF. Wherever there is a need, the personnel are deployed and they have always managed the situation well. In Kashmir also we are very proud of your discipline, morale and work ethics”, he told the security personnel.

Meanwhile, Reasi District Collector Indu Kanwal Chib has announced that all schools and colleges will remain closed on Thursday whereas the government offices and banks will resume services from Thursday.

Doval reached the state a day after Home Minister Amit Shah announced abrogation of Article 35A and dilution of Article 370, provisions that gave the special right to subjects of the state over several matters including land, government jobs and scholarships.

The government has also bifurcated the state and carved out Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
