Modi to visit Kashmir, post Article 370 era

Ahead of the beginning of the poll battle on ground zero, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be arriving in Kashmir Valley, for the first time after the Abrogation of Article 370, on Thursday to participate in the ‘Viksit Bharat Viksit Jammu Kashmir’ programme.

Modi’s visit to the valley is aimed at galvanising the party cadre and bolstering the party’s poll campaign. The mass contact programme of the Prime Minister has also raised the hopes of residents in the valley as they are anticipating the conduct of the Assembly polls alongside Lok Sabha polls.

By winning the hearts and minds of the people of Kashmir, the Prime Minister will be sending a firm message to the political opponents who often raise fingers questioning the Kashmir policy of the ruling dispensation.

To welcome the Prime Minister, Srinagar city has been decked up with king-size hoardings and party flags along the fortified route leading to the venue of the public rally at Bakshi stadium. The entire Bakshi stadium has been draped in colours of India. Elaborate security arrangements have been put in place to ensure an incident-free culmination of the programme.
