Kashmir to be most developed in next 10 years: Shah

Straight Line News Network

New Delhi, Oct 3: While flagging off the second semi-high speed indigenous Vande Bharat train from Delhi to Katra in Jammu and Kashmir, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday announced that Kashmir would be in the “list of most developed Indian states in next 10 years and a beginning in that direction had been made today by the railway”.

Shah said the hurdles in the development of Kashmir had been erased with the abrogation of Article 370 that gave the erstwhile state a special status.

“I have a firm belief that we will gain success in complete eradication of terrorism from Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370. Kashmir would be mentioned in the list of most developed Indian states within 10 years,” Shah said.

The Minister said the Vande Bharat train, which has been manufactured at a Chennai-based factory, was a gift to the countrymen from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“A new history is being created through Vande Bharat, which will be a great medium of tourism to Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.

Vande Bharat Express will run between Delhi and Katra facilitating travel up to the Hindu shrine of Vaishno Devi. The booking for the train will start on October 5.
