Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh asserted that by 2022, a solution would be found to the Kashmir problem as also other problems like terrorism, naxalism and Northeast insurgency.

“There are a lot of problems — terrorism, naxalism, Kashmir problem. Much is not needed to be said about these problems. But I can assure you this much that by 2022, we have pledged to create a ‘new India’…So a solution will be found to all these problems before 2022. We want to assure the countrymen on this,” he said.

Singh was addressing a programme in Lucknow titled ‘Sankalp se Siddhi – New India Movement (2017-2022) Naye Bharat kaa nirmaan’.

He said Mahatma Gandhi understood the importance of cleanliness and had made it a campaign but it is Modi who gave it the shape of a mass movement.

“For 85 long years after the first war of Independence in 1857, India understood the country’s power and kept on gathering it. In 1942, the entire nation stood united when Mahatma Gandhi and said ‘British should Quit India’ and gave the clarion call of ‘do or die’. … It was the result of this pledge which bore fruits five years later,” Singh said.

He said if in five years after launch of Quit India movement, India could achieve Independence, “then why can’t we make a ‘new India’ after taking pledge in 2017 and realising it in 2022?”

Rajnath Singh also said, BJP does not indulge in politics of government formation but does so “for nation building and development.”
