Pakistan behind terrorist attack
Jammu and Kashmir DGP Dilbag Singh on Sunday called it an attack on the economy. He said that together with Pakistan, terrorists want to end the livelihood of local people. Dilbag Singh had said that the economy of Jammu and Kashmir rests on horticulture and tourism. With the help of Pakistan, terrorists want to harm both of them.
Pakistan-backed terrorists intended to create panic among traders of products including apples in the Kashmir Valley with these attacks. The government is encouraging businesses here whereas a success business environment would fail the Pakistani propaganda that Kashmiris are happy to be in India and have come to terms with the end of Article 370.
EU’s 28-member parliamentary delegation on Tuesday reached the Kashmir Valley in the first visit of any international delegation in what is going to be officially a union territory in two days.
