Amit Shah likely to chair high-level security review meeting on Jammu & Kashmir tomorrow

Union Home Minister Amit Shah is likely to chair a high-level security review meeting on Jammu and Kashmir in the national capital on Tuesday. Sources indicate that the meeting will delve into crucial topics such as the law and order situation, the security grid, and the implementation of a zero-tolerance plan towards terrorism.

Expected attendees include Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, Chief Secretary Atal Dulloo, and Director General of Police RR Swain. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla, Intelligence Bureau Director Tapan Deka, Director Generals of Police from the Central Reserve Police Force and the Border Security Force, as well as officers from the Ministry of Home Affairs and Jammu and Kashmir, will also be present.

The meeting, scheduled for the afternoon, will encompass a review of the area domination plan, the zero-terror strategy, the current law and order scenario, cases involving the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, and other security-related concerns.

Additionally, this meeting might focus on the New Central Sector Scheme for Industrial Development of Jammu and Kashmir. The scheme was launched in 2021 with an outlay of Rs. 28,400 crore, aimed at bolstering industrial growth. The Home Minister is likely to scrutinize the progress of various development projects within the Union Territory.

Recent data indicates a noteworthy uptick in investments within the industrial sector: Rs. 2153.45 crore in 2022-23 and Rs. 2326.65 crore up until November 2023 in 2023-24. 

This meeting will follow previous high-level reviews chaired by the Home Minister, highlighting the government's commitment to combating terrorism with a policy of zero tolerance. Plans to fortify a comprehensive 360-degree security mechanism to dismantle terrorist support and information networks were also reiterated during these discussions, emphasizing a strong stance against terrorism in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership.

Similar comprehensive assessments of the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir were previously conducted by the Minister in January and April last year in New Delhi, encompassing evaluations of the security grid's functionality and various security-related aspects.
