PM Modi was in Jammu & Kashmir on February 20. During the visit, he interacted with people and talked about the recent developments in the area. He mentioned that a record two crore people visited Kashmir last year – a massive increase from the past few years. This has led to an increase in tourism-related jobs and businesses in the area, which in turn has led to development in the Valley.

PM Modi further mentioned the government’s commitment to transform the Valley into a tourist destination that could give Switzerland tough competition. He said that despite the Valley’s tumultuous past, a “balanced and holistic development” awaits in the future.

He was quoted during his address, “We have pledged a developed J&K and I have full faith that we will make Jammu and Kashmir more developed and fulfil all your dreams within the next few years. We will create such infrastructure in Kashmir that people will forget going to Switzerland.”
