PM Modi to visit Kashmir next week

Srinagar, Feb 27 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit Kashmir on March 7, official sources said on Tuesday.

This will be Modi’s first visit to Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 in 2019.

Official sources said that Modi would attend an official meeting at the Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) in Srinagar on March 7.

Last week, the PM visited Jammu, where he addressed a public rally, laid the foundation stone for multiple projects worth over Rs 32,000 crore in J&K, and also launched the first electric train.

While Modi has visited Jammu three times during his second term as PM, he has not visited Kashmir once during this period.

PM Modi’s visit to Kashmir is expected to precede the ECI’s visit to assess the possibility of simultaneous assembly and parliamentary elections in Jammu and Kashmir.
