Srinagar, Nov 6: Prime Minister Narendra Modi would always want to take Jammu and Kashmir on the developmental path, union minister Jitender Singh said on Friday.
“I appeal to the people (of Jammu and Kashmir) to come out in large numbers to listen to the prime minister tomorrow (November 7) for the state’s development,” the minister of state in the Prime Minister’s Office said at a press conference here.
Asked whether Modi would announce the much-awaited economic package to the state during his Saturday visit, Singh said: “…all the expectations of the people are under the consideration of the prime minister.”
“I would avoid comment on the curbs on separatists in Kashmir. It is the state government’s domain, but they must have had good reasons for doing this,” he said.
