|Ceasefire during Ramzan for Kashmiris, not terrorists, says Amit Shah|
New Delhi, May 26: Bharatiya Janata Party national president Amit Shah today said the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan is meant solely for ordinary Kashmiri citizens, and not the terrorists.
At the Panchayat Aaj Tak in New Delhi today, the BJP chief reiterated the Narendra Modi-led goverment's resolve to deal with terrorism strongly.
"When encounters are carried out in Jammu and Kashmir, villages are isolated, traffic is halted and life in general is disturbed. Hence, we chose to stop our operations during Ramzan," Shah said.
The BJP chief added that the government still reserves the right to deal in case of terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir.
"We still have zero tolerance against terrorism," Shah said.
On May 16, the home ministry had said that security forces will not launch any operations in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan.
