Terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir is directly related to cross-border infiltration, President Ram Nath Kovind said on Monday. "Terrorism in interior parts of Jammu and Kashmir is directly related to the cross-border infiltration," Kovind said in his address to a joint sitting of Parliament on the first day of the Budget Session. He, however, did not name Pakistan.

"Our armed forces, paramilitary forces and Jammu and Kashmir Police have a better coordination, and are giving a befitting reply to this violence," he said. He also said the government is keeping the door open for those who want to join the mainstream. The President said the internal security situation has improved in the country. The security situation in the northeastern states has improved and incidents of Left Wing Extremism (LWE) have gone down, Kovind said.
