The Quint: Chenani-Nashri Tunnel is Giant Leap for J&K’s Development: PM Modi

Observing that 40 years of violence had done no good and only brought bloodshed to Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the youth of the Valley had to choose between tourism and terrorism to shape their future.

Inaugurating the Chenani-Nashri tunnel, Modi said the country’s longest tunnel would change the fortunes of the state and its economy and asserted the Centre’s commitment to boosting tourism in the state.

He also congratulated the Mehbooba Mufti-led Jammu and Kashmir government for utilising central funds for the development of the state and assured his government’s continued support.
He termed the Chenani-Nashri tunnel as the valley’s “fate line” and said it will boost the economy of the state and farmers will be able to send their produce to Delhi markets promptly and without concerns of delay.
