Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit Jammu on February 3 to lay the foundation stone for multiple projects.
Union Minister for Road, Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari will be inaugurating the Keeriyan-Gandial Bridge in Kathua District on January 22.
The projects, some of which are national projects, were announced for all three regions of the state.
However, it is yet to be decided, whether PM Modi will visit all three regions, or lay foundations stone for projects in Jammu, maybe through e-mode. He is likely to address a rally in Vijaypur, during his visit.
On May 19, 2018, PM Modi had visited Ladakh, Kashmir, and Jammu for inaugurating and laying foundation of various projects. Lok Sabha Member from Kathua-Udhampur-Doda constituency, MoS PMO Dr Jitendra Singh is set to accompany Gadkari and Modi during their visits.
The projects, for which PM Modi is likely to lay foundation stone are All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for Jammu and Awantipora, Jammu-Akhnoor-Rajouri-Poonch National Highway, Shahpur Kandi and Ujh projects, Sudh Mahadev-Pul Doda National Highway, Ladakh University, Devika Rejuvenation Plan, Indri Pattan-Pargwal bridge etc.
These projects, most of them with Central funding, can prove a gamechanger for BJP in the upcoming elections for Lok Sabha and State Assembly.
