Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had last week announced that all stone-pelting cases against youth across Jammu and Kashmir would be withdrawn. He made the announcement during his two-day visit to the Valley.
Reacting to the same, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had said that the children of the state deserved to live in a positive atmosphere, which was free of all the terror and violence.
"Children from Jammu and Kashmir should also be given atmosphere and opportunity to develop like that of the other parts of the country, so that stone pelting, bombing and gunning stop and these children get a chance to grow," Mufti had said.
Rajnath Singh has visited Jammu and Kashmir to review the law and order situation in the state. During his visit, he discussed security and law and order situation with Governor NN Vohra, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and senior officials of various state and Central departments.
