With the timing of this, people are eager to hear what the PM has to say about this divisive topic.

Article 370 was repealed by the BJP on August 5, 2019.

Political tensions in the area have increased as a result of the BJP-led Centre’s determination to abolish Article 370 on August 5, 2019, and split the former state into the Union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Prior to the Prime Minister’s arrival, a number of schools located on his path have closed on Wednesday and Thursday, and Thursday’s board exams have been rescheduled for the following month.

The announcement detailed PM Modi’s plans for his visit to Kashmir and highlighted his role in initiating national initiatives worth over Rs 1,400 crore that are targeted at boosting the tourism industry.

About 2.5 lakh farmers are anticipated to receive skill-development training under the program, and robust value chains will be developed for the benefit of the farming community, along with the establishment of about 2,000 farmers’ service centers.

The tourism initiatives that Prime Minister Modi has planned are in line with his goal of improving the entire traveler and pilgrim experience at major pilgrimage and tourism sites around the country.
