    Published on August 12, 2019

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the decision to scrap Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir has been taken after a great deal of thought. The Centre moved forward with it for the benefit of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He said the move will help create three necessary conditions for investment- stability, market assess and predictable laws.

    Mr Modi said, open minds and  markets will ensure that the youth of the region put J&K on the path of greater progress. In an exclusive interview to an English daily, Prime Minister talked about New Jammu and Kashmir, saying leading entrepreneurs have already expressed their interest in investing in the state.

    The Prime Minister also said that better avenues of education like IIT, IIM and AIIMS will not only give more educational opportunities to the youth but also give the region a better workforce. He said projects related to roads, new rail lines and  modernisation of the airports are being accelerated.
