Former Deputy Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen Raj Kadyan (Retired) on Tuesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Ladakh sends out a good message that such territories are also looked after by the government.
A visit to Kashmir by head of the country is going to be beneficial. It will improve the morale of the soldiers and will also give a good message to territories like Ladakh who feel neglected, said Kadyan.
Another important effect will be that it will give strong message to China and Pakistan as until now, they might have felt that such territories are not looked after by government. Such visits help in removing such misconceptions,he added.
Earlier in the day, Modi inaugurated the Leh-Kargil-Srinagar power transmission line and an NHPC (National Hydroelectric Power Corporation) project on his second visit to Jammu and Kashmir.
The Prime Minister also stressed on the need for a saffron revolution as well as developing tourism in the state. (ANI)
