During the conversation, PM Modi raised the issue of violence against members of the Indian diaspora who were celebrating 73rd Independence Day outside the Indian mission in London.

As per the statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, PM Modi brought PM Johnson’s attention to the challenges posed by vested interests seeking their motivated agenda, including violent means.

The Pakistani groups, as well as Sikh and Kashmiri separatist outfits, organized anti-India protest over the government’s decision on Jammu and Kashmir. Also, a separate pro-India demonstration happened outside India House against the anti-India protests.

During the conversation, Prime Minister Modi also mentioned that terrorism is plaguing all parts of the world, including India and Europe.

PM Modi talked about leaving home at the age of 17 and staying in the Himalayas. He stated,

“I wanted to make a decision about my life. But before that, I wanted to understand the world. I wanted to see the spiritual world. For that, I went to the Himalayas. I love nature. I met people in the Himalayas, stayed with them. It was a wonderful experience and I spent a long time there.”

3. Living in Harmony with Nature

When Grylls asked him whether or not PM was ready to travel through the tiger-heavy region of the forest, the latter said,

About ever feeling nervous or fearful, PM Modi said that “nervousness” was not a part of his temperament. He added-

7. Message to the Young Generation

The Prime Minister said-

“If I have to tell anything to the young generation then I will say we should not think of our life in pieces. If we think of our life as a whole then there will be ups and downs. If you are going down don’t think about it because the way up starts from there.”

“The people of India can make India clean. Personal hygiene is in the culture of the Indian people. We need to develop the habit of social hygiene. Mahatma Gandhi has done a lot of work on it and recently we are getting good success in this. I believe India will succeed in this very soon.”

10. Experience on Man vs. Wild

PM Modi stated-

“I really enjoyed today. All my memories from my time in the Himalayas came back to me. It reminded me of the days I spent on the banks of Narmada river.

Prime Minister on Thursday delivered his first address to the nation’s people after the abrogation of Article 370 and 35A. On Monday, the Home Minister Amit Shah announced the historic judgment, which was passed in the Parliament.

During his speech, PM Modi assured that the restrictions in J&K would soon be relaxed. He stated that Article 370 was being used as a tool for spreading terror. He said that this is the time that we Indians work together to towards making the Jammu and Kashmir state a violence-free state.

The Prime Minister discussed in detail various issues prevalent in the state like terrorism and corruption. He promised that the industrial development in the state would lead to increased employment opportunities, thus bettering the lives of people in the conflict-hit state.

1. Beginning of a New Era in J&K and Ladakh

He said-

“We have taken this decision as a family (on the abrogation of Article 370). A new era has begun in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Article 370 was a hurdle for the development of Kashmir. The rights of all denizens of India are equal, and their responsibilities are equal too. The harm Article 370 did to the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh was never discussed. Article 370 and Article 35A gave only separatism, nepotism and corruption to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”

2. The Rights of Daughters of J&K

PM further said-

“In the last 3 decades, almost 42,000 innocent people lost their lives. This figure would bring tears to anyone’s eyes. The rights enjoyed by the daughters of other regions were not enjoyed by the daughters of Jammu and Kashmir.”

3. Special Benefits to Individuals of Reserved Categories in J&K

The Prime Minister stated-

“During elections, SC, ST, and individuals from other backward communities in other regions would enjoy special benefits but the same did not happen in Jammu and Kashmir. The financial benefits for central government employees, including security forces, like LTC, HRA and more will be provided to those posted in Jammu and Kashmir.”

4. Job Creation for Local Youth and Filling of Vacant Posts in J&K

He added-

“The vacant posts in Jammu and Kashmir will be filled. This will benefit the youth of Jammu and Kashmir. Local youth will receive employment. State companies, as well as private companies, will be encouraged to create jobs for the local youths in the state.”

5. J&K Under Central Govt’s Governance

PM Modi said-

“After revoking Article 370, the central govt has decided to put J&K under the governance of the central government. This decision has been taken after careful consideration.”

6. J&K will Not be a Union Territory Forever

He also said-

“J&K will not remain a UT forever. You will get the opportunity to elect your representatives soon. I want to tell the people of Jammu and Kashmir that your representatives will come from among you.”

7. J&K’s Panchayat is Doing a Good Job

PM stated-

“Panchayats are doing a good job in J&K. Due to elected panch and pradhan, development projects have been implemented speedily in J&K. I am sure that after the revocation of Article 370, the representatives of the Panchayats here will do stellar work.”

8. J&K and Ladakh can Become World’s Biggest Tourist Destination

He said-

“J&K and Ladakh have the potential to become the biggest tourist destination in the world. The reforms required for this are being done. I urge the Hindi, Telugu and Tamil film industry to come to J&K for shooting their projects. Sports training, scientific education will help the youth of J&K to showcase their talent across the world.”

9. J&K and Ladakh Regions are Rich in Many Herbal and Organic Products

The PM said-

“Several herbal and organic products are scattered across J&K and Ladakh. If they are identified and marketed in the global market, then it will greatly benefit the people and farmers of these regions. I urge the enterprises from all over India to come forward for this.”
