"Anyone makes a mistake...for the first time in 30 years, it is the Modi government's wonder, that army admitted at a press conference that the killing of two youth (at Chattergam in Budgam district) was a mistake.

"An inquiry commission probed the matter and those who fired the bullets were slapped with charges. This is the proof of my good intentions. This has not happened in 30 years. I have come to provide justice to you," Modi said in his maiden election rally in the Valley here.

Two youth were killed and two others injured in army firing at Chattergam on November 3, an incident that sparked protests at many places in Kashmir.

The Prime Minister said every child was dear to her mother and the nation felt the pain when anyone got killed.

"Every mother's son is dear to her. Every mother's son's blood is priceless. Anyone getting killed, the pain is felt by the country as much as the mother feels it," he said.

The Prime Minister said 33,000 policemen sacrificed their lives in the line of duty since independence to ensure that their fellow countrymen can lead better lives.
