Highly placed sources informed OneIndia that the measures that are being proposed are long term. While the restoration of peace would be the immediate priority, the government is planning a long term strategy to ensure that such a situation does not arise again.
Brand new strategy

Several social media accounts are already being examined and there will strict action to ensure that such material does not crop up.
The government also plans on withdrawing all facilities such as security and travel to the Kashmiri separatists. The government is contemplating strict measures to withdraw such perks and instructions have already been given to the state government in J&K.
Sources say that the government while planning a long term solution would also discuss the matter in Parliament. While suggestions for a comprehensive plan would be sought in Parliament, the government also proposes to continue with its Track II strategy.
Rajnath Singh will meet with Muslim clerics later on Tuesday to discuss the situation.
The government is also contemplating on releasing a large grant to the state. It was proposed during a presentation made by the state government when the all party delegation visited the state on Sunday and Monday.
The union government will continue to engage civil society and the idea would be to change the perception that some people in the state have.
