It is a matter of satisfaction and is very encouraging that the epoch-making G20 summit passed on successfully and it culminated and concluded on a positive note.
The G20 delegates visited the markets of Srinagar city and also met and interacted with the civil society members and got a firsthand information about the fast changing scenario of Jammu and Kashmir and had a feel of Naya Kashmir under the leadership of Narindra Modi.
The delegates also have an on spot view of the paradise on earth and they appreciated the enchanting natural beauty of Kashmir.
24th May is the concluding day of G20 meeting .The delegates see the market of Lal Chowk and also made shopping of the Kashmir handicrafts. .The delegates visited the Mogul Gardens and also visited the tourist spots to have the glimpse of the beauty of Kashmir.
The reaction from the delegates are very encouraging ,good and positive.G20 meeting will give impression about the fast returning normalcy ,peace and the positive change in Kashmir .
The delegates will take the message of peace .normalcy and development to the whole world and this will put an end to the misconception and misinformation about Kashmir.G20 is the first historical event organized after the abrogation of article 370 and article 35A as well as after the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two UT’s of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh .
The people of Kashmir were anxiously waiting for the G20 meeting and they have great expectations from this historical event .Both tourism ,film tourism and handicrafts ,handlooms and in fact the economy of Jammu and Kashmir will get a boost because of G20.meeting.
In fact the educated youth of the UT will get opportunities of employment and this is going to help the UT in combating the problem of growing unemployment and this in fact will be a big favor for the local population and thus the people of Jammu and Kashmir are welcoming the G20 event and have high hopes attached with the crucial G20 countries summit .
A Telegu film star has said in a meeting of film tourism and prevention of culture event concerned with G20 that Kashmir has untapped potential for tourist Films and it will remain untapped for next 95 years and thus it means that Kashmir has great potential and scope for tourism related films and the only thing is that it requires exploitation in the interest of the youth of the UT of Jammu and Kashmir and the G20 summit will pave the way for the development of tourism related films and so the young talent will be encouraged for the film careers and this will go a long way to benefit the tourist economy of the J&K .
The delegates from the different countries of the world will be the brand ambassadors of Jammu and Kashmir’s peace ,normalcy ,change and development and they will spread the message of Kashmiris peace and changed scenario in the whole world and this will be a big development as the militancy is on the last leg and in near future Kashmir will completely be free from the scourge of militancy .
The days of strikes ,hartals and stone pelting are over and are the things of the past and the government of India and the UT administration should build the developmental edifice on the positive changes the winds of which are brewing in the UT and the era of new Kashmir has begun under the prime minister Narendra Modi’s leadership as the PM is more concerned with Jammu and Kashmir and wants that his slogan of Sabka sath and sabka vikas will bring total transformation and development in Jammu and Kashmir and it has begun to show positive and desirable results .
The Holding of the crucial and historical meeting of group seven countries and its successful culmination indicates that there is discernable and marked improvement in the overall situation in Kashmir and people in general are for change ,peace and progress and the G20 event proves and testifies this changed scenario .Tourism ,film tourism ,handicrafts ,handlooms ,hospitality sectors will get impetus by the G20 meeting as there will be emphasis on these sectors and the sum total of this will be the economic development of Jammu and Kashmir .
It is so good that the G20 delegates will meet the members of the civil society, in Srinagar and interact with them and they will get the right feel and pulse of the people of Kashmir and all the misinformation will die its natural death .By holding G20 countries meeting in Kashmir ,the delegates will come to know about the reality of Kashmir and fake and biased views about Kashmir will have no takers then .Pakistan ,China and Turkey which have not attended the G20 meeting about tourism stand sidelined and isolated in the international community .
The union minister Dr Jitendra Singh has rightly said that China not attending the G20 meet does not make any difference and not attending is not in favor of China and Pakistan .The G20 meeting has successfully concluded after the hectic deliberations and discussions for three days and the successful culmination and conclusion of the G20 meeting is a slap on the face of Pakistan and its agents in Kashmir .The success of the G20 meeting is a feather in the cap of PM Modi and LG Manoj Sinha .It is under the leadership of these two leaders that Jammu and Kashmir registered a significant change and development which is not hidden from anyone .
The Naya Kashmir is on the path of peace .change and progress and the G20 delegates will carry this message of peace change and development of Kashmir to the outside world so that the whole globe will know the truth about Kashmir .In brief it is a matter of satisfaction and pride that G20 meeting has successfully concluded after transacting business for three days .
The government of India and the UT administration deserves all kudos for the success of the G20 meeting .May peace and development become a permanent feature of the UT of Jammu and Kashmir and it will be so good that the G20 delegates will carry and spread the message of change ,peace and development of Kashmir to whole world and all misconception and disinformation will be the things of past and set right.
