“If somebody does not want a solution through talks, then we know very well how a solution can be found,” he said. The Minister said the Centre intended to make Kashmir “not only the paradise of India but also a tourist paradise of the world”. Referring to his appeals of talks to separatists during the NDA government’s previous tenure, Mr. Singh said the Hurriyat had shut its door on the members of the delegation. “The new government’s focus is only on speedy development and prosperity of J&K,” he said. The Defence Minister paid tributes to the soldiers killed in the 1999 Kargil War at a memorial in Drass Sector. He was accompanied by Union Minister Jitendra Singh, Chief of the Army Staff General Bipin Rawat and General Officer Commanding-in-Chief (Northern Command) Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh, said a Defence spokesman. The Defence Minister also visited Veer Bhoomi and the Hut of Remembrance, which are located on the memorial premises. Mr. Singh also dedicated to the nation a Memory Lane, which displays information on a few important battles that took place in Kargil. He later interacted with the soldiers deployed in the sector.
