Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked stone-pelters in the Valley to shun violence and adopt the path of progress through tourism. Inaugurating South Asia’s longest road tunnel between Chenani and Nashri, Modi said the “tunnel of fortune” was “Jammu & Kashmir’s giant leap towards development and progress”. There were two roads before the youth of Kashmir today, the PM said. “One is of tourism, the other is of terrorism. Many people have lost their lives during the last 40 years, but it has not benefitted anybody,” he said. “If blood has been shed, it has been spilled on the soil of Kashmir. And if a life has been lost, it is a mother in Kashmir or in India who has lost her son. This game of shedding blood has not benefitted anybody in Kashmir,” the PM told a nearly 1 lakh-strong crowd. “However, if they had focused on tourism during all these years, the entire world would have been at the feet of Kashmir,” Modi said.
