Peace prevailing in J&K post end of special status: Javadekar

INDORE: Stating that curfews and restrictions have been lifted from many places in Jammu and Kashmir since abrogation of the special status, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar on Monday said the festival of Eid al-Adha was celebrated with “great enthusiasm” in the border state.

The BJP leader also dismissed “rumours” about the death of a few people in a firing incident in the northern

state, whose special status granted under Article 370 of the Constitution has been scrapped.

The Information and Broadcasting Minister said peace has been restored in Jammu and Kashmir as “restrictions and curfews were lifted from most parts” of the border state which has now been given the status of a Union Territory. (AGENCIES)
