Amit Shah arrives in J&K on a two-day visit
On Saturday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will lay foundation of the ‘Balidan Stambh‘ in Srinagar’s Pratap Park adjacent to the historic city center Lal Chowk.
The Balidan Stambh is a symbolic pillar constructed to honor the heroic deeds of the security forces.
According to sources, Shah will also meet senior politicians and pay a courtesy call on veteran leader Dr. Karan Singh at his ‘Taleh Manzil’ residence in the high-security Gupkar Road of Srinagar.
After this, the Union Minister will proceed to the Police Golf Course to inaugurate the Martyrs’ Gallery.
He is also scheduled to give appointment orders to the kin of slain police personnel, the sources added.
Late Friday evening, Shah chaired a high-level security review meeting attended by senior civil, police, paramilitary, and intelligence officers to review the preparations for the annual Amarnath Yatra which will begin on July 1 and end on August 31.
Amit Shah’s visit holds great significance for Jammu and Kashmir as it underscores the government’s commitment to development, security, and honoring the sacrifices of the security forces.
During the review meeting, the Union Home Minister ordered some fine-tuning of the security arrangements to ensure minimum damage in case of any natural disaster during the 62-day Yatra.
