Only love and not bullets or abuse can help resolve the dragging problem in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday.
“We are committed for the development of Jammu and Kashmir and this is also the resolve of every Indian,” the Prime Minister said in his Independence Day speech from the Red Fort here.
Modi said the separatist campaign in the state cannot be resolved by “gaali se” (abuse) or “goli se” (bullet) but by embracing every Kashmiri.
But Modi made it clear that there would be no let up while dealing with the separatists.
At the same, he appealed to the terrorists to join the mainstream. “You have every right to make your voices heard in Indian democracy.”
