The eyes of the country were on the Prime Minister's visit to Jammu because he was reaching the soil of Jammu and Kashmir for the first time after the abrogation of Article 370. In Jammu, he not only addressed the Panchayat officials across the country on the occasion of Panchayat Day, but also laid the foundation stone and inaugurated various schemes and projects of this union territory and also gave a message to the people of Kashmir and Ladakh that the Government of India Committed to protect their interests. Giving details of the work done in Jammu and Kashmir, he also underlined how development and public welfare works are being done fast now.

He especially attracted the attention of the youth with these words that you will never have to face the troubles that your parents-, and grandparents had to face. He clearly said that he would fulfill his promise. It is hoped that these words of his will have a positive effect. Anyway, in the past few years, there have been many such works which were not been done before. These include investments from abroad.

Undoubtedly, a lot has changed in Jammu and Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 and this change is also visible, but a lot remains to be done. There will be assembly elections sooner or later and probably after the completion of the delimitation process, but before the elections are held, the challenge of completely curbing terrorism will also have to be overcome. Even after the elimination of all the terrorists, the way terrorist incidents are happening in Kashmir, which the return of Kashmiri Hindus is not possible at the moment.

Whatever has to be done, this work has to be made possible, because only then the message will be sent to the terrorists and their supporters that their pulse is not going to rot. It would also be appropriate to reserve some seats in the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly for Kashmiri Hindus and Sikhs. This one opportunity that is being provided through delimitation should not be squandered. This work should be done on priority basis because if nothing is done then there may be delay in achieving the objective of abrogation of Article 370.
