Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi will visit Jammu and Kashmir later this month, a senior BJP functionary said on Monday.
This would be Narednra Modi’s first trip to the union territory since the abrogation of Article 370.
He will address a conference of local body representatives in Samba on National Panchayati Raj Day on April 24, Jammu and Kashmir BJP General Secretary (Organisation) Ashok Koul said while addressing a function of Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu.
Kaul said efforts are being made for a meeting between the Narendra Modi and representatives of the Kashmiri Pandit community so that they can raise their concerns with him.
In August 2019, the GoI abrogated Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under Article 370 of the Constitution, and divided the erstwhile state into two union territories- JK and Ladakh.
