SRI NAGAR: In his maiden visit to Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday acknowledged that the State has passed through a difficult time and pledged to win the hearts of people through development.

“Jammu and Kashmir’s development is the top agenda of my government,” Modi said at a function after flagging off the 25.6-km long railway line from Katra, base camp of Vaisho Devi Shrine, to Udhampur. With the new line, pilgrims can travel to Katra by train directly from Delhi. “The day brings to Jammu and Kashmir speed through the rail link, and energy with the inauguration of 240 MW Uri-II power project in Uri, North Kashmir,” Modi said.

The Prime Minister added that he is launching his Vikas Yatra (Development Journey) for the country with the blessings of Vaishno Devi. He said the journey, begun by former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee, will be continued by his government. “It will be taken to its logical conclusion,” Modi said.
