In warning to Pakistan, PM Narendra Modi\'s address to nation promises terror-free J&K

The PM began his speech by congratulating the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh on the scrapping of special status to J&K and the state’s bifurcation. Hailing the move as the ''beginning of a new era in Jammu Kashmir,'' PM Modi said the rights and duties of the two new Union territories would be the same as the entire nation now.

Outlining his grand plans for a bright future for the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh after scrapping of Article 370, the PM said, ''J&K will rise to newer heights and I am sure that the Kashmiri youth will take the state to newer heights.''

''It would mean the protection of Indian laws, industrialisation, a boost in tourism and therefore more employment opportunities,'' he said in his nearly 30-minute long televised address to the nation days after the government's move to end the special powers of the state and bifurcating it to union territories.

Calling Jammu and Kashmir as the ''crown of our country'', the PM said that the entire nation is extremely proud of it. The PM recalled that the people of Jammu and Kashmir have made numerous sacrifices in the past and it was time that they rise past terror and separatism now.
