Efforts are being made by the central government to improve connectivity and infrastructure in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday.
He talked about the efforts while interacting with a group of over 100 youth and children from state who are currently touring different parts of India as part of the initiative Watan Ko Jaano.
The youth and children asked a number of questions to the Prime Minister on themes such as infrastructure development in Jammu and Kashmir, sports facilities in the state, education and employment opportunities, and the Prime Minister s work routine, a PMO statement said.
Modi told them that working hard is never a cause for exhaustion and completion of a task brings satisfaction, that is greater than any sense of exhaustion, the statement said.
He emphasized the importance of sports, and sportsman spirit among people.
Minister of State in the PMO Jitendra Singh was also present on the occasion.
"Had a great interaction with youth from Jammu and Kashmir who are touring different parts of India as a part of 'Watan Ko Jaano' initiative," the Prime Minister tweeted later.
"We had a discussion on various issues like infrastructure development, sports facilities, education and employment opportunities in J&K," he added.
