There was a time when there was no sign of India in Kashmir. State Bank of India signboard was seen with a cloth covering 'India' word. Murli Manohar Joshi and Narendra Modi risked their lives and unfurled 'triclour' at Lal Chowk. We were not in power then: Shah
Some say there is an atmosphere of fear there. Those who are against India should have fear in their hearts. We are not part of ''tukde tukde'' gang. We are not against common people of J&K, we have started the process of providing them jobs and implementing all govt schemes there: Amit Shah.
Be it panchayat or Lok Sabha polls, not a drop of blood was shed in J&K, we are in full control: Shah.
We want to remove fear from the minds of J&K residents, says Shah.
