Prime Minister said decades of dynastic politics in Jammu and Kashmir deprived the youth of the opportunity to lead from the front. He said, now the youth of Jammu and Kashmir will lead the development and take it to a new height. He urged the youth, the sisters and daughters of the region, to take charge of the development of their area. Mr. Modi said the government had to take certain steps in Jammu and Kashmir for precaution and people have been understanding.
PM Modi said the decision to keep Jammu and Kashmir directly under Central administration for a brief period was a well-thought decision. Since Governor rule was implemented in the region, the state administration has been directly in touch with the Centre due to which the effects of good governance can be seen on the ground. Mr. Modi expressed confidence that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will achieve their goals with renewed vigor in an environment of good governance and transparency.
He said Ladakh has the potential to become the biggest center of Spiritual, Adventure, and Eco-tourism. He said Ladakh can also become a major center of solar power generation. The Prime Minister said, now there will be the proper use of its potential and new opportunities will be created for development without discrimination. He said, innovative spirit of the Ladakh youth will get a boost and they will get better institutions for good education. He said people of the region will get good hospitals and infrastructure will be further modernized.
The Prime Minister said the government is ensuring that people of Jammu and Kashmir don’t face any problem in eid celebration. He said, the government is extending all possible help to people living outside Jammu and Kashmir and want to return home on Eid.
He said the decision will support the economic progress of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh as well as the whole of India. When peace and prosperity prevail in this important part of the world, the efforts of world peace will naturally be strengthened. The Prime Minister called all to move forward to build a new Jammu and Kashmir and new Ladakh with the new India.
