Union home minister Amit Shah today said the government has done a lot to end terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir and now that the law and order situation has improved, assembly elections can be held in the state within the next six months. The promise of elections -- a longstanding demand of political parties in the state -- came as he tabled a bill in the Lok Sabha for an extension of President's Rule.

Jammu and Kashmir has been under Governor's Rule since the BJP ended the ruling alliance with Mehbooba Mufti's People's Democratic Party in June last year. To hold elections by the year-end, another extension of President's Rule is needed.
