Dr Jitendra reviews arrangements for PM Modi’s rally in Jammu

He was speaking to the media during the on-the-spot final review of arrangements for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s programme at Maulana Azad Stadium here tomorrow.

The Union Minister was accompanied by senior officials of Government of India and a team of J&K UT administration led by Divisional Commissioner Jammu.

“There is a huge amount of excitement on the eve of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official visit to Jammu tomorrow, with the people eagerly awaiting his arrival,” Dr Jitendra said. He said, “Virtually every citizen of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir wants to be a part of the programme.”

Earlier Dr Jitendra was briefed by the officials of the civil administration and security agencies about the elaborate and necessary arrangements being made for PM Modi’s public programme. “I am glad that both the society and the administration have got together to make adequate arrangements for it,” he said.

The Union Minister said, “People from all over the UT are coming to participate in the event, particularly from ten districts of Jammu region. The people hailing from far flung districts, including Poonch, Kishtwar and Ramban, who will attend the programme, will arrive in the city either tonight, whereas those from neighbouring districts like Kathua and Samba will reach the venue tomorrow morning.”

He said adequate arrangements with regard to accommodation, provision of refreshments and sanitation facilities for the invitees were made so that they could attend the programme in a comfortable manner.

He informed that the Prime Minister would inaugurate projects worth more than Rs 30,000 Cr. “These projects have been executed by the four ministers of the Government of India, namely Ministries of Education, Civil Aviation, Railways and Petroleum. Prime Minister Modi has accorded high priority to the infrastructure development of J&K. The establishment of two AIIMS, IIM, IIT and IIMC in the Union Territory is evidence of the huge amount of priority Prime Minister Modi gives to Jammu and Kashmir,” Dr Jitendra said.

He recalled that the biggest ever development package for J&K in the last 70 years was granted by PM Modi soon after taking over the reins (as the Prime Minister).

“Immediately after becoming the Prime Minister, he was confronted with a flood situation in the UT, and he navigated through the calamity,” Union Minister added. He said, “PM Modi has not only given a huge amount of physical and financial support to the development of the region, but has also sought to break away the mental barriers that existed by bringing about the constitutional changes which happened on August 5 and 6, 2019, helping in mainstreaming of the UT.
