Ministers to dwell upon positive impact of Art 370 abrogation in J&K

Sources said that the date for the visit of Union ministers would be finalised at a meeting of the Union Council of Ministers on January 17.

Union Minister Shripad Yesso Naik meeting Lieutenant Governor G C Murmu in Jammu last week.

The home department said in a three-page order that 2G mobile connectivity on post-paid mobiles for accessing white-listed websites including e-banking will be restored in five districts including Jammu, Sambua, Kathua, Udhampur and Reasi districts in Jammu region.

The order came days after the Supreme Court, on January 10, directed to review all orders suspending internet services in Jammu and Kashmir and stated that the "right to access the internet is a fundamental right under Article 19 of the constitution".

On 5 August previous year, the administration had put all key political leaders and activists, including separatists under house arrest, as a precautionary situation amid the situation arising out of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act. On the same day, Minister of Railways and Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal will visit Srinagar.

Among them, Reshi is considered as a rebel PDP leader who had openly revolted against then Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and PDP patron Mehbooba Mufti.

Azad said that Government Ministers are coming for the third time to spread lies and they will get exposed this time too, they don't know how to run the government and have destroyed Jammu and Kashmir.

"Amit Shah says all is normal in Kashmir". Over 250 were sent to the jails outside Jammu and Kashmir. "Why not allow non-propagandists to go and understand the situation prevailing there?" tweeted senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal.

Former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad has hit out at the government for not including Russian Federation in the foreign diplomats' delegation that visited Kashmir earlier this month.

"36 ministers running around J&K in 6 days is a sign of panic and not normality". The revocation of Article 370 was all about bringing development in Jammu and Kashmir like Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai.

"With the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir, the idea is to create a level playing field there". They will reach out to people across the UT up to panchayat level and tell them how the recent legislation will be beneficial for them, as well as inform about Centre's plans to expedite the development process in the region.
