JAMMU, Jun 18: Asserting that security cannot be compromised, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju today said that the Centre would provide all support to maintain peace and restore normalcy in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

He said, “The strategies have to be dealt with due consultation with the elected government in Jammu and Kashmir,” adding, “the state government is capable of handling the situation and necessary support will be given by the Centre.”

Responding to a question, about `fear psychosis unleashed by terrorists in valley’, with particular reference to recent killing of six police cops, the Union Minister said, “The people of Jammu and Kashmir can’t be bowed down by such terror acts.”

“Any sane person will condemn such brutal act,” he said while condemning killing of six police personnel in an ambush by terrorists on police party in the valley.
