Union Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah Friday said that the Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir would be held by the end of the year.
He also proposed a six-month extension of President’s Rule in the state.
Shah said the elections were delayed due to Ramzan, the Amarnath Yatra and security reasons.
Shah added that the situation in the state was being monitored by the Centre. “In the past one year, this government has done a lot of work to root out terrorism from J&K,” he said.
