Time running out for militancy supporter politicians: Jitendra


JAMMU: Expressing satisfaction over the voter turnout in the first phase of ULB polls in Jammu and Kashmir, Union Minister Jitendra Singh Monday said time was running out for politicians who thrived on unrest and militancy in the valley.

“We congratulate the people of Jammu and Kashmir for polling in high numbers in the first phase of local body elections in the state. The message is loud and clear that time is running out for political groups which over the last 20 to 30 years thrived on militancy and an atmosphere of vacuum where there was no democratic competition”, Singh told reporters here.

After casting his vote at a polling booth in ward no 53 of Trikuta Nagar, Singh said no force on earth could hold back the people of Jammu and Kashmir as they want to be part of new India’s development journey led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
