What kind of assurance the government is promising?!I was so happy some pandits returned to valley& continued to live happily.I didn’t expect this kind of thing again!क्या पागलपन कररहे हैं ये लोग?!Why our government is failing time&again.Simply removing370 is not good enough to protect people.Adequate security measures also shd be taken.Is removing 370 a mere political stunt,so it seems.Very very sad.My sincere heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families ❣️🏏🌹🙏❣️🌹
