Srinagar: Kashmir is an essential part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s New India journey, said Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh on Tuesday.
It is time to avail of the enormous new openings initiated over the last 8 years, which are shaping the destiny of 135 crore Indians, under the able guidance of Prime Minister, the minister said addressing a public gathering during the “Gareeb Kalyan Sammelan”, organised at the Bihishte Zahra Park in Budgam to mark the completion of eight years in service of the current government.
Dr Singh said that a three-tier system of government has been introduced for the first time in Jammu and Kashmir in seventy years and it will not be long before people get to see and feel the benefits of such a system.
Speaking on the occasion, the Minister deliberated on different centrally sponsored schemes and different initiatives launched by the Modi Government to ensure equitable development of people of Jammu and Kashmir, something which they had been deprived of for long for no fault of theirs.
The Minister also distributed benefits under Mudra, PM Svanidhi, Ayushman Bharat, PMAY-G and various agriculture and horticulture related schemes and distributed various logistics among them.
The Sammelan was also addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi through virtual mode from Shimla.
