Rajnath’s Day 1 in Kashmir: Outreach ‘may not be sufficient’ but ‘definitely positive and sincere’

Expert says home minister’s remarks a welcome course correction to NDA strategy in Valley; political parties welcome peace overtures. New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s efforts to reach out to the youth of the Valley “may not be sufficient” but are “definitely a positive and sincere” approach to deal with the alienation and anger on the streets of Kashmir, experts and political parties in the state have said. On a two-day visit to the state, Singh Thursday announced an amnesty to minors involved in stone-pelting and emphasised on the need to prevent the youth from getting “misguided.” He also recalled Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech when the Prime Minister said Kashmir’s problems can only be solved by embracing the people of Kashmir, not with bullets or abuse. “If you look at the language that the Centre has been using, it’s somewhat different from the last three years. It may not be sufficient...
