The Cabinet made a fervent appeal to all shades of political opinion to help restore peace and normalcy in the valley.
Cabinet while reviewing the security and law and order situation in the State directed the Police and security agencies to exercise maximum restraint while handling Law and Order situations to prevent loss of human lives.
The Cabinet urged the civil society and parents to counsel the youth to stay away from violent protests which, in spite of maximum restraint, can at times lead to fatal consequences.
