Srinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a public rally in Jammu and Kashmir’s summer capital Srinagar on November 7, sources said on Thursday.

Sources in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) told IANS that this was disclosed by Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed during a party convention here on Wednesday.

The prime minister will address a public rally in Srinagar in the afternoon of November 7 during his daylong visit to the state, the sources said.

Modi will also inaugurate phase-2 of the Baghlihar hydro-electric power project in the Jammu region, the sources said, adding Modi is expected to announce a developmental package for the state.

We have high hopes from this visit. It is expected the prime minister will announce a development/flood relief package during this visit, the sources said.

This will be Modi’s first visit to the Kashmir Valley after the present PDP-BJP alliance took power in the state on March 1, 2015.

Modi’s last visit was on July 17 in connection with the birth anniversary of Congress leader, late Girdhari Lal Dogra.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” over the rape incidents in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua and Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao was “unacceptable”. He prodded him to speak.

He also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party governments in these states of “protecting rapists”. “Mr Prime Minister, your silence is unacceptable. What do you think about the growing violence against women and children? Why are accused rapists and murderers protected by the state? India is waiting. Speak up,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

In another tweet earlier, Gandhi thanked people who had taken part in the midnight protest in Delhi against the “slumber” that the Modi government was in and sought justice for the victims.

“Thousands of men and women stood up to be counted in the battle for justice and to protest the rising acts of violence against girls and women.

“I thank each and everyone of you for your support. It shall not be in vain,” Gandhi said while attaching pictures of people who participated in the protest. Gandhi, who had led the protest Thursday night, was joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her husband Robert Vadra, hundreds of party workers and senior party leaders.

During the protest, Gandhi slammed the Prime Minister over the repeated incidents of violence, rape and murder of women in the country. “We want the government to take action. Today, women are feeling insecure to move out of their houses. Somewhere a child, a woman is raped, killed and we want that the government should resolve this. The women of the country should feel safe,” he had said. IANS
