Sheeri (Baramulla) Dec 23: Minister of State for Home Nasir Aslam Wani on Friday said the state government was committed to encourage youth who want to return from the Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK).
“One should be happy if youth are returning from the PaK. It is also the policy of the government to encourage youth who want to return and live a peaceful life with their families” Wani told reporters at the sidelines of 10th passing out parade at Sheeri here in north Kashmir.
“Militants who have surrendered or have been released will be provided jobs or encouraged to start their own enterprise. Government is formulating a concrete policy for their permanent rehabilitation,” he said.
Asked can state police tackle militancy if Armed Forces Special Powers Act is revoked, Wani said, “Police will gradually take the responsibility if AFSPA is revoked partially.”
