Talking about Jammu and Kashmir, Home Minister said, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, government has continuously worked to keep Kashmir terrorism-free.

On Left Wing Extremism, Mr Shah said, naxals are now limited to only three districts in Chhattisgarh now.

Speaking on Manipur, Mr Shah said, everyone is pained at incidents of violence in Manipur. He said, while the incidents are shameful, doing politics on it is even more shameful.

She accused Congress of being mute spectator when women had to face atrocities in Jammu and Kashmir in the past.

She also talked about the abrogation of article 370 saying it has ensured justice to women in the UT.
