UDHAMPUR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday assured that the Centre is committed to restoring statehood to Jammu and Kashmir adding that assembly elections will also be held soon.

"The time is not far when assembly elections will be held in Jammu and Kashmir also. Jammu and Kashmir will get back its state status. You will be able to share your dreams with your MLAs, and your ministers," PM Modi said while addressing a public rally in Udhampur.

The Prime Minister said that whatever he has done so far is only serves as a trailer of the work that he is yet to do in the region. He pointed out that now after decades, elections were taking place in Jammu and Kashmir without fear of terrorism and cross border firing.

" The upcoming general election is not just to elect a member of Parliament but to form a strong government in the country. When the government is strong, it completes by challenging the challenges," said the Prime Minister.

Underscoring the latest development witness in Jammu and Kashmir, PM Modi said, "Now schools are not burnt here, but schools are decorated. Now AIIMS, IITs and IIMs are being built here. Now modern tunnels, modern wide roads, and wonderful rail journeys are becoming the destiny of Jammu and Kashmir."

"Be it Jammu or Kashmir, now tourists and devotees have started coming here in record numbers, In the 10 years, we have tightened the noose around terrorists and corrupt people. Now in the coming five years, this area has to be taken to new heights of development. Within 10 years, Jammu and Kashmir has completely changed. Roads, electricity, water, travel, migration, all these are there. But the biggest thing is that the mind of Jammu and Kashmir has changed," he said.
