In anticipation of PM Modi’s visit, a young Kashmiri singer, Imran Aziz, from the Anantnag region, composed a song in honor of the Prime Minister. With lyrics praising Modi’s initiatives, including the repeal of Article 370, Aziz’s song reflects the sentiments of many Kashmiris eagerly awaiting the Prime Minister’s arrival.


Thousands are expected to join PM Modi’s rally in Srinagar, where heightened security measures have been put in place.

Additionally, people in Kashmir are prepared to greet the Prime Minister, hopeful for the announcement of a development package.


PM Modi’s visit holds significant political implications, especially concerning the revocation of Article 370 and the forthcoming Assembly polls in Jammu and Kashmir.
