Prime Minister Narendra Modi told Network 18 group editor Rahul Joshi that the people of Kashmir need both development and trust. “I always maintain that people of Kashmir need both development and trust. And 125 crore Indians have always stayed committed to development. We will march on the path of development and trust,” Modi said.

Amid ongoing unrest in the Valley, he emphasised on the need for taking Kashmir ahead with peace and unity while ensuring that it remains “paradise” in the real sense.

“The seeds (of the current unrest) were sown during Independence. Every government has had to face this problem. This not a new problem but an old one,” he said.

Modi had previously appealed for calm in the Valley during the height of the agitation against the killing of Hijbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani. More than 60 people have lost their lives during the clashes between security personnel and civilians. Hundreds have been injured in the violence and curfew was clamped down in most parts of Kashmir for nearly 41 days. Many have lost their eye sight due to pellet injuries and have been airlifted to AIIMS Delhi for surgery.
