Srinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday sprung a surprise on the people of Jammu and Kashmir. After inaugurating several projects in Leh, Modi laid foundation stones and inaugurated various developmental projects in Jammu and Srinagar, and held public meetings.

However, in one of those gatherings, the Prime Minister started his speech in the local language ‘Kashmiri’ to the delight of those present in the auditorium. Very rarely has a political leader from outside the state attempted to speak the local language.

“In this bone-chilling cold of Kashmir, I have come to light the lamp of love. I am here for your happiness and prosperity,” Modi said, to which the whole room echoed with claps and cheers.
