Terrorism in Kashmir has been at a minimum level after the abrogation of Article 370, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Saturday, describing the first six months of the Modi government's second term as dedicated to development and security of the country. "In the four months since the repealing of Article 370 and 35A, terrorism is at a minimum level. Earlier, terrorism was dominant but now it has taken a backseat. This is a tremendous change and the public life is now systematic," Javadekar said at a press briefing.
