PM Modi urges officials to speedily firm up plans for island development

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, on September 20, 2016 chaired a high-level meeting to review the steps towards holistic development of islands.

The Prime Minister was given a presentation on the vision for holistic development, which involved inputs from the NITI Aayog, the Ministry of Home Affairs, and other senior officials.

India has a total of 1382 offshore islands, out of which officials have initially proposed 26, which could be considered for holistic development. These 26 islands are located along different parts of India’s coastline, including some in the Andamans and Lakshadweep. Officials informed the Prime Minister that developmental activities shall be centred around basic infrastructure, tourism, agriculture (including organic agriculture and fisheries), and carbon-neutral energy generation.

Emphasizing the strategic importance of India’s island wealth, the Prime Minister stressed the potential for tourism in these areas. Urging the officials to speedily firm up plans for island development, the Prime Minister said solar energy should be used extensively in this exercise.

Our priority is to strengthen grassroots democracy in J&K: PM
Delimitation has to happen at a quick pace so that J&K gets an elected Government: PM

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has called today’s meeting with political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir an important step in the ongoing efforts towards a developed and progressive J&K, where all-round growth is furthered.

In a series of tweets after the meeting, the Prime Minister said.

“Today’s meeting with political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir is an important step in the ongoing efforts towards a developed and progressive J&K, where all-round growth is furthered.

Our priority is to strengthen grassroots democracy in J&K. Delimitation has to happen at a quick pace so that polls can happen and J&K gets an elected Government that gives strength to J&K’s development trajectory.

Our democracy’s biggest strength is the ability to sit across a table and exchange views. I told the leaders of J&K that it is the people, specially the youth who have to provide political leadership to J&K, and ensure their aspirations are duly fulfilled.”
