On June 1, Amit Shah had met Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik and took stock of the law and order situation in Kashmir Valley.
Shah, during the poll campaign of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, said that the Article 370, which gives special powers to Kashmir, will be scrapped if Narendra Modi is elected as the Prime Minister again.
Earlier, Mehbooba Mufti had also targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for one of his interviews where he had said that his approach towards Kashmir is a ‘hitting touch’ to separatists and militants while a ‘healing touch’ to civilians.
“Wondering how returning mutilated bodies of militants to families, imposing a road ban twice a week, detaining and humiliating Kashmiris is healing,” she tweeted.
