“There is no immediate threat (from the ISIS),” Nirmal Singh said, when asked about the terror group’s activity in his state.
“Tell me how many people are doing it? One or two. Thousands of people came down for prayers, namaaz and out of that thousands, they go back to their homes and two-three people keep the flag in their pocket and they take out and show it and they get media attraction,” he said.
“The question is how much impact they could make? I tell you, a number of attempts have been made by Pakistan by cross-border firing and all that, to push these terrorists inside, but they could not succeed except one or two,” he said.
The BJP is part of the ruling alliance in Jammu and Kashmir along with the Peoples Democratic Party.
