Invest In Kashmir: Amit Shah’s Revolutionary Plea Ignites a Bold New Chapter for Gujarat’s Titans

In a compelling address at the 10th edition of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit’s closing ceremony, Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation Amit Shah called upon Gujarat’s industrialists to seize the opportunity and contribute to the economic transformation of the northern region, particularly by investing in Kashmir. Acknowledging Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative to mainstream Kashmir, Shah urged the business community to play a pivotal role in this transformative journey.

Speaking before a distinguished audience, Shah emphasized, “I would like to tell Gujarati industrialists, in case they want to expand towards the north, then please invest in Kashmir. By doing so, please support Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative in mainstreaming Kashmir.” The Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit provided the perfect platform for this appeal, with Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha echoing a similar call to potential investors.

Sinha revealed during the summit that he had already signed seven Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) for investments in Jammu and Kashmir. Prominent players like the Emmar Group and the UAE-based Lulu Group have expressed their commitment to contribute to the development of the Union Territory, with plans for significant infrastructural projects.

The three-day summit, themed ‘Gateway to the Future’ and inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, witnessed the participation of heads of state, ministerial delegations from over 30 countries, and numerous international organizations. It served as a strategic platform for the Ministry of Development of North-Eastern Region to showcase investment opportunities in the North-Eastern regions.

Chief Minister of Gujarat Bhupendra Patel, Union Minister of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry, and Dairying Parshottam Rupala, and Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha, among other dignitaries, graced the occasion.

In his closing remarks, Amit Shah lauded the transformative impact of the Vibrant Gujarat Summit over the last two decades, positioning Gujarat as a preferred destination for production and investment. Expressing confidence in India emerging as the world’s third-largest economy in the next 15 years, Shah attributed this growth to political stability, corruption-free governance, and policies focused on public welfare.

Highlighting the achievements in education and health sectors, Shah commended the New Education Policy and significant investments under the Production Linked Incentive Scheme. He also emphasized India’s potential in the space sector, predicting a value of US$ 40 billion by 2040, and recognized the country’s leadership in real-time payments globally.

Shah concluded by expressing confidence in India’s future under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, reiterating the commitment to a developed and self-reliant Bharat by 2047. As the groundwork begins, Shah assured industrialists of the Gujarat government’s dedication to meeting their expectations.”
