Resources say India is hosting the G20 Summit in Srinagar to communicate progress worldwide. Kashmir will open up as a filming location, and thus, it will generate jobs in the process. In addition, it will be a wake-up call to the nations who view the territory as a troubled region.

However, critical analysts argue India is set to host the G20 Summit in Kashmir to project “normalcy” in the disputed area. The event will be held in Kashmir to assert that the abrogation of Article 370 (the cancellation of partial autonomy) brought peace and progress in the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, security in the valley has stepped up in preparation for the meeting of the G20 tourism working group. The security forces are on high alert, and there have been more than 70 search operations in the valley only this month.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) of India is examining potential threats and is conducting raids across the valley. The NIA is looking into concerns that maybe the militants sympathisers were acting as couriers and are moving explosives, including magnetic bombs, in the valley. The NIA investigates terror threats; 30 foreign militants who have been hiding in the valley for a year have been activated by Pakistan.

The Additional Director General of Police, Vijay Kumar, affirms that there will be three-tier security and the anti-drone equipment will be set up in the air. He said that they’re taking help from the Marine Commandos and the Army, and under three-tier security, they will deploy Police, CRPF, BSF, and SSB to conduct the meeting safely.

How is the G20 Summit going to impact Kashmir?

A tidal wave of revolutionary outcomes is anticipated to follow the G20 summit in Jammu and Kashmir, putting the area on a new course for stability, economic expansion, and social advancement. The G20 summit will allow world leaders to come together and discuss the best methods to invest in the area and promote the growth of economies.

Creating jobs, improved access to healthcare and education, and social stability are necessary to make a more affluent Jammu and Kashmir. Moreover, it will undoubtedly encourage a positive and cooperative environment, resulting in a better future for everyone.
