India should adopt a "bullet-for-bullet" policy to end terrorism in Kashmir like it did in Punjab, said Viresh Shandilya, National President Anti-Terrorist Front India (ATFI) on Monday. Shandilya while addressing the media persons on his Political tour to Goa strongly urged upon the need of apprising the Youth of Kashmir about the advantages of abolishing Article 370.

He further insisted upon BJP government to renounce all political ties with Mehbooba Mufti government in Jammu & Kashmir and President Rule should be imposed in J&K. Shandilya today demanded scrapping of article 370 to restore peace in Jammu & Kashmir. "There should not be any place for article 370 in J&K as terrorist activities have increased in that state due to special autonomous status it enjoys under this provision. If we want to bring back peace there then article 370 should be abolished," Article 370 is the biggest reason for the rise in terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir. Though our army is strong enough (to contain militancy) but our country's policy to fight against terrorism is improper," ATFI Chief said.ATFI Chief Shandilya said the Narender Modi government should call for an all-party meeting to discuss the possibility of removing Article 370. “A person from any state in India should be allowed to purchase land and start a business in Kashmir. The togetherness will help in the development of Kashmir and violence will stop ultimately.
If Article 370 is removed, I will be the first to buy land in Kashmir,” ATFI Chief Shandilya said.Anti-Terrorist Front India Chief Shandilya said that front is affirmatively looking to initiate a Rathyatra Against Terrorism for the second time in August embarking from Parliament New Delhi and going up to Kashmir. It will start ceremoniously by green flags being shown by thee exalted families of the venerated Martyrs and all Political parties’ leaders. Political parties have initiated many such Yatras for political benefits in past also but it was for the very first time in 2002 ATFI undauntedly and courageously ventured a Rathyatra against the dreaded and intimidating terrorism with fearless and selfless aim. "I will say that political parties will have to change their politics and put the fight against terrorism at highest priority, other things can come later. If this is not done, then no one can save this country," Shandilya said.Shandilya strongly requested Prime Minister Narender Modi to ensure the safety of female foetus and insisted that if earnest efforts are made to salvage the female foetus from getting killed no girl child will be slaughtered ruthlessly. If efforts are made sincerely by the citizens of our country and by the revered Prime Minister no brand ambassadors for such humanitarian purposes are required. He emphasised on passing of a bill in the Parliament oriented towards meeting all the expenses commencing from the birth of the girl up till her marriage to be met by the government and the exorbitant amounts ranging in cores which are poured on Brand Ambassadors and Advertisements are completely uncalled for.ATFI Chief Shandilya bestowed Kulwant Singh with the responsibility of handling the operations of front in Goa and conferred him with the designation of In-charge.
