Home Minister Rajnath Singh indicates that BJP will not tweak Article 35A and if the talks with opposition and the separatists go well, then the Himalayan valley Kashmir can breathe easy. This is the right step in the right direction and ought to have been taken long ago. The effects of demonetisation has brought down terrorists attacks drastically and the recent meeting with PDP and National Congress will see light and open a new chapter in maintaining a cordial relations and fulfil Kashmiri wishes sooner or later. There is hope of a permanent solution of peace in Kashmir and the centre will consider Compassion, Confidence, Communication, Coexistence, and Consistency to attain a normal life in the valley. The situation in Kashmir is improving no doubt but not completely normal. What we have seen during the last two, three days that has convinced Home Minister that the trees of peace have not dried up. There are green buds of peace on these trees and our Home Minister is ready to visit the state frequently to bring normalcy there. Somehow, just like Punjab issue was troubling UPA, the Kashmir issue is giving sleepless nights to NDA. Now there is a hope of revival and make things move properly from here on.
