Senior BJP leader writers to PM Modi, urges to restore statehood, further development in J&K

Dear Prime Minister shri. Modi G,

As you prepare to address the nation during your forthcoming visit to Srinagar on March 7, 2024, I respectfully draw your attention to the critical issue of Jammu and Kashmir, which holds immense significance for our nation.

At this pivotal moment, I urge you to consider reinstating statehood for Jammu and Kashmir, emphasizing its restoration. Such a declaration would not only mark a significant milestone in our democratic journey but also resonate deeply with the people of Jammu and Kashmir. This step will reaffirm our commitment to democracy, ensuring genuine representation and inclusion for all.

Additionally, I implore you to announce a comprehensive development package during your visit, aimed at generating employment opportunities and fostering inclusive growth in the region. These initiatives are vital to addressing the social and economic needs of Jammu and Kashmir and advancing the prosperity of our nation as a whole.

Under your visionary leadership, India has witnessed remarkable progress, with every city benefiting from equitable development. However, the marginalized communities of Jammu and Kashmir have long been neglected, trapped in a cycle of inequality and injustice. Your government’s efforts have begun to remedy this disparity, bringing hope and opportunity to the region.

The people of Jammu and Kashmir eagerly anticipate your sincere efforts and decisive actions, which will undoubtedly have a transformative impact on their lives.

Thank you for considering this urgent appeal. Your support and commitment to the welfare of Jammu and Kashmir will be remembered as a beacon of progress and unity for generations to come.

With sincere regards,

Syed Mohammad Rafiq Shah

Senior Leader, Bharatiya Janata Party
