Jammu, Nov 18: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Wednesday said that there will be no militancy in Kashmir after two years even as some elements are trying to keep it alive.
“Let me assure you that there will be no militancy in Jammu and Kashmir after two years. The Government of India is working in this direction,” he said while addressing a gathering in Jammu.
He said that people are a worried about law and order situation and some concerns are being expressed as well.
“I want to assure you that situation is not what it was earlier and that it has changed a lot,” the LG said. “Some elements are trying to keep the militancy alive but I assure you all that there will be no militancy in J&K after two years.”

The LG has already ordered a magisterial probe into the Hyderpora encounter. kno
