Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing a public rally in Srinagar’s Bakshi stadium, on Thursday hit out at the Opposition, including the Congress, claiming that some families were misguiding not only the people of Jammu and Kashmir, but the entire nation over the now-abrogated Article 370.. This is his first visit to Kashmir after he abrogated Article 370 on August 5, 2019.

The Centre-led by Prime Minister Modi abrogated the provisions of Article 370 on August 5, 2019, and bifurcated the erstwhile state into the Union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh

For decades, the Congress and its allies misled the people of Jammu and Kashmir, the country for political gains in the name of Article 370. The people of Jammu and Kashmir are now aware of the truth that whether Jammu and Kashmir benefited from Article 370 or only a few families took advantage of it. The talent of Jammu and Kashmir is getting its due respect today as there is no Article 370 now,” Modi said.

Modi arrived in Srinagar to unveil a slew of development projects worth more than ₹6,400 crore and address a public meeting. This is Modi’s first visit to the Kashmir valley after the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019.


Modi attended the “Viksit Bharat Viksit Jammu Kashmir” programme at Srinagar’s Bakshi Stadium where he announced multiple projects related to agriculture and tourism.

Modi unveiled developmental schemes worth more than ₹6,400 crore at the ‘Viksit Bharat, Viksit Jammu Kashmir’ programme at the stadium.

“The feeling of coming to this heaven on earth is beyond words… There was an era when the law implemented in other parts of the country could not be implemented in Jammu and Kashmir. There was an era when schemes for the welfare of the poor were implemented across the country, but our brothers and sisters of Jammu and Kashmir were deprived of the benefits. And see now, how the times have changed,” Modi said at the public gathering.
