Militancy won’t end in a day: EAM

Ahmedabad, May 31: In the wake of militants shooting dead a woman teacher in Jammu and Kashmir, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar today said militancy will not end in one day and expressed confidence in winning the ongoing battle against extremism.
Responding to a question of reporters in Gujarat’s Vadodara city about the targetted killing of the teacher by militants in Kashmir’s Kulgam district, Jaishankar said the Centre is confident of winning the battle against terrorism which has been going on for many years.
“Our fight against terrorism, which has been going on for several years, will continue. See, militancy will not end in one day. But, even terrorists know that the present regime is not like the previous Government,” Jaishankar told reporters after attending Garib Kalyan Sammelan in Vadodara.
“We will definitely take necessary steps against militancy. Our battle against militancy will continue and we are confident that we will be successful,” said the External Affairs Minister.
Before attending the event, Jaishankar, who was on a two-day visit to Vadodara city beginning Monday, visited Police Bhavan and interacted with women police personnel of “She Team”- a special cell to address complaints and distress calls by women.
“Visited Vadodara city Police Bhavan and met the highly motivated She Team. A great example of gender sensitive and socially caring policing” Jaishankar tweeted. (PTI)
