Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that the full statehood of Jammu and Kashmir will be reinstated soon and the Assembly elections will also be held in the hill state following the process.

Addressing a public rally in Udhampur, PM Modi said, "Modi thinks far ahead. So what has happened so far is just the trailer. I have to get busy in creating a new and wonderful picture of the new Jammu and Kashmir. The time is not far when Assembly Elections will be held in Jammu and Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir will get the status of statehood. You will be able to share your dreams with your MLA and your ministers..."

He further added that the upcoming Lok Sabha polls will take place in Jammu and Kashmir without the fear of terrorism, strikes, stone-pelting and cross-border firing.

Addressing a poll rally, Modi said he has fulfilled his promise of putting an end to the long sufferings of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and challenged the Congress and other opposition parties to bring back Article 370 of the Constitution.

Notably, the BJP-led Centre revoked Article 370 of the constitution in August 2019.

Seeking votes for BJP candidates from Udhampur and Jammu, Jitendra Singh and Jugal Kishore respectively, PM Modi said the upcoming election is meant to provide a strong government at the Centre that can take on the challenges facing the country head-on.

Notably, Udhampur will to the polls on April 19.
