Political establishments in India and Pakistan have always been closed to the idea of giving up their part of Kashmir, and this is most likely never going to happen. But it has to be understood that for the people of Kashmir it is a very important issue. One solution could be to facilitate the opening up of border points for which there needs to be an easy visa-acquiring process. There has to be a boost to economic activities between India and Pakistan. Another point is to curb the radicalisation of Kashmiri youth and stepping up efforts to generate employment, and better food security and health care. Schemes like NFSA, RTE, MGNREGA and the Skill India Mission have the potential to achieve this.
