Amit Shah chairs Parliamentary Consultative Committee meeting; J&K, CAPFs discussed

New Delhi Feb 26 (UNI) Union Home Minister Amit Shah chaired a meeting of the Parliamentary Consultative Committee of the Ministry of Home Affairs at Daman on Monday where issues related to the development of Jammu and Kashmir and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) were discussed.
While presiding over the meeting, the Home Minister said the Government is fully committed to the overall development of Jammu and Kashmir and has taken several measures that have significantly boosted its development, an official statement said here.
He said the abrogation of Article 370 has proved to be a transformational phase in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which has seen wide-ranging changes in development, security and socio-economic dimensions.
During the discussion it was highlighted that with the abrogation of Article 370, all the constitutional safeguards enjoyed by the country's citizens were extended to Jammu and Kashmir including progressive laws like the Right to Education, National Minorities Commission Act, etc.
The enactment of these laws has guaranteed equality and fairness to all, including Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, women, children and senior citizens. A provision of 10% reservation has been made for the upliftment of economically backward classes in jobs and educational institutions.
Stone pelting and organised strikes have become a thing of the past. The Ministry of Home Affairs is committed to leading the way on the path of accelerated and inclusive development and empowering the people of Jammu and Kashmir to shape their future and fulfil new aspirations, Shah said.
During the discussion on CAPFs, the Home Minister said that the Government is committed to ensuring a safe and secure India.
He reiterated the splendid work done by the CAPFs in maintaining law and order in dealing with issues of internal security and guarding of the International Border.
He further emphasised that the welfare of CAPF personnel and their kin is the top priority of the Government, and exhorted all officers to continue the good work being done to achieve Prime Minister Modi’s vision of Vikshit Bharat.
During the meeting, it was apprised that in the last five years, the recruitment of more than 2.43 Lakh personnel has been carried out. Under the Rozgar Mela during the last year approximately 98676 candidates have been appointed and around 54000 personnel promoted in CAPFs.
The members of the Committee were also informed that during the last 10 years, 54 Battalions have been raised in CAPFs.
During the meeting, various steps taken for the welfare of CAPF personnel were also discussed including Bharat Ke Veer, Ayushman CAPFs, Prime Minister Scholarship Scheme and enhancement of ex-gratia to the next of kin of those who made supreme sacrifice for the nation.
Issues related to the creation of infrastructure, modernization and increasing housing satisfaction ratio were also discussed. It was apprised to the Committee that the Government is making concerted efforts to make the lives of CAPF personnel comfortable. UNI RBE SSP
