Srinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is scheduled to visit Kashmir on March 07, is expected to address a large public gathering in Srinagar’s Bakshi Stadium on the same day.

Earlier, unofficial sources had said that PM will visit Anantnag and address a gathering there.

However, according to reliable sources, preparations, including administrative and security measures, have been completed to ensure the smooth conduct of the event in Srinagar’s Bakshi Stadium not in Anantnag.

Sources said that the venue for the PM’s rally has been changed from SKICC to Bakshi Stadium. They said the arrangements both administrative and security, have been finalized for smooth and peaceful conduct of the rally.

“PM Modi is scheduled to visit Kashmir valley on March 7, and will address a public rally at Bakshi Stadium Srinagar,” sources told Kashmir Images.

They said that a large gathering is expected to listen to the PM. Bakshi Stadium has been chosen as the venue instead of SKICC.

Police sources said that security has been beefed up in the summer capital, especially around the Bakshi Stadium, the new venue of his rally.

This will be Modi’s first visit to the Valley since the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019. The last time the Prime Minister visited Kashmir was in February 2019.

During his visit to Kashmir on March 7, Modi is expected to announce the scores of developmental projects and also interact with the beneficiaries of various national schemes and programmes in the Valley.

BJP had been looking forward to a mega public rally, to be addressed by PM Modi, in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district that would announce the party’s poll campaign in Kashmir. However, there is still no official confirmation on whether the Prime Minister will address a rally in Anantnag or not.

Earlier, PM Modi visited Jammu on February 20. He inaugurated and laid the foundation of developmental projects worth Rs 32,000 including the 48.5 Km extension of Railway service from Banihal town to Sangaldan and the inauguration of AIIMS in Vijaypur in Samba district. He addressed a mega public gathering in Jammu and also interacted with the beneficiaries of various national flagship programmes in J&K.

The Prime minister expressed his satisfaction at the success of his Jammu visit and also appreciated the efforts made by LG Manoj Sinha in ensuring that the benefits of the national developmental programmes reach the common man.
