Development is not possible without peace at J&K: LG Sinha


According to some people continually trying to stir up trouble in the valley

Srinagar- Saying that development was not possible without establishing peace in Jammu and Kashmir, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said on Friday that some people were trying to provoke the security forces and the administration into making a mistake and let unrest be fueled.

Development can only take place when there is peace. This should be kept in mind. There is no place in the world that has progressed in the absence of peace, Sinha said at a ceremony at the launch of district export plans at the SKICC here.

Union Minister of State, Trade and Industry Anupriya Patel was also present.

The JK LG said that some people are continuously trying to stir up trouble in the valley as they are not happy with the growth of tourism here, the establishment of industries, the stabilization of the economic scenario and the development of people’s life.

Some people try to provoke the security forces, us, to make the security forces make a mistake and people go out into the streets (to protest). But we will not allow this to happen.

Society must manifest itself. Security forces are working hard around the clock for the safety and security of ordinary people, he said.

Sinha said the administration is working on a policy that the innocent will not be harmed but the guilty will not be spared.

He said that the measures taken by the government in development concerns the future of the people and their children.

So, come forward by creating a new JK, and it is necessary to make society aware that without peace, we cannot achieve development. It is not only the government’s responsibility, but that of the citizens here as well, he said.

Sinha said JK has huge export potential, especially its handicrafts, papier-mache, horticultural products, Pashmina and carpets.

He said the government was working to triple exports over the next five years.

We have been working on this for two years with the Ministry of Union Commerce. Today we have formulated a detailed plan for each district and in the next few days we will try to export from each district of JK. We thank PM for his guidance and support. We are working on a goal of tripling exports over the next five years, LG added.
