“Court, in its profound wisdom, has fortified the very essence of unity that we, as Indians, hold dear and cherish above all else”,” he said.
The Prime Minister assured the “resilient” people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh that “our commitment to fulfilling your dreams remains unwavering”.

“We are determined to ensure the fruits of progress not only reach you but also extend their benefits to the most vulnerable and marginalised sections of our society who suffered due to Article 370” he added.
