According to Anurag Thakur, Union Minister, “terrorism incidents in Jammu and Kashmir have decreased by 168% since the Modi government came to power and Left Wing Extremism incidents have decreased by more than 265% since 2015.
Thakur emphasizes that the Modi government has a “zero tolerance policy towards terrorism.” According to Thakur, “the government took decisive steps that yielded definitive results.” “Surgical strikes in 2016 were in response to the Uri attack.” As a result of the Balakot Air Strikes in 2019, which were carried out in response to the Pulwama bombings, all of these decisive actions produced definitive results”.
Insurgency-related violence has decreased by 80% since 2014, civilian deaths have decreased by 89 percent, and 6,000 militants have surrendered. “The number of terror incidents in Jammu and Kashmir has decreased by 168% under the Modi government, and conviction rates in terror financing cases have risen to over 94%,” he stated.
Since 2015 to June 2022, the number of Left Wing Extremism incidents has decreased by more than double to over 265%.
Prime Minister Modi’s leadership has ushered in an era of peace in the northeastern region, according to Thakur.
Assam and 60 percent of Tripura have completely withdrawn the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).
He noted that multiple peace treaties, including the Bodo Accord in 2020, the Karbi Anglong Agreement in 2021, and the Assam-Meghalaya Inter-State Boundary Agreement in 2022, have been signed to ensure peace in the region.
No specific numbers were mentioned by the minister.
