Detained leaders will be released in less than 18 months: Jitendra Singh

The Member of Parliament from Udhampur constituency and Union minister of State in the PMO, Dr Jitendra Singh has said that the detained political leaders in the state would be released within eighteen months.
The statement by Dr. Jitendra Singh was the first from any political representative or minister in the BJP led NDA government on the maximum time for which mainstream political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir may remain under detention.
Pointing out that the media keeps asking about the release of political leaders detained in the state, Singh said that he always says “less than 18 months”,
As reported by a news agency, the statement of Dr Singh was a dig at the political detentions made by Congress Government in 1975, when all the renowned political faces in the opposition were detained for a period of around 18 months.
About the restoration of statehood to Jammu and Kashmir, Singh said it will not take 72 years, in an apparent reference to the continuation of Article 370 for seven decades.
As the situation normalises, statehood will be restored to Jammu and Kashmir, he added.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.
