THE Narendra Modi Government has “clarity, consistency and conviction” in its approach towards the issues of Jammu and Kashmir, Union minister Jitendra Singh said on Sunday.

This was “clear” from the action taken against the son-in-law of hard-line separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani and six others by the NIA in connection with its probe into funding of terror and subversive activities in Kashmir Valley, he said in Udhampur.

“It is now for the people (of Jammu and Kashmir and India) to judge that how the Governments in the past (at the Centre and in the State) had been acting,” Singh said. Singh, who was on a day-long visit to Udhampur, was asked about his reaction to a large number of cases pending without investigation for the past three decades against Geelani.

The minister said, “What difference it has made in the last two to three years is that we have a Government which is following clarity, consistency and conviction in Jammu and Kashmir.”
