The Centre is working on ensuring good physical and digital connectivity in Jammu and Kashmir which has immense potential, Prime Minister NarendraModi said on Wednesday as he outlined his vision for the state during an interaction with a group of 240 youth from there.

Aged between 15 and 24 years and mostly belonging to militancy-affected families, orphanages and weaker sections of society, the youth repeatedly expressed their wish to see their state progress and have modern infrastructure like in Delhi, a PMO statement said.

The youth, who met the Prime Minister at his Race Course Road residence and interacted with him for over half-an-hour, are currently on a visit to Delhi as part of the "WattanKoJano" (know the country) initiative of the Home Ministry in coordination with the state Government.

"Spent an enjoyable evening with over 240 youngsters from J&K. They belong to militancy affected families, orphanages & weaker sections," Modi tweeted later.

"The youngsters from J&K, who are in Delhi as a part of "WattanKoJano" initiative, amazed me with their curiosity. They asked me many Qs," he added in another tweet.

Responding to their questions, Modi spoke at length about his vision for the development of India and especially the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the PMO statement said.

He said the state had immense potential for tourism, which in turn would bring prosperity to people.

The Prime Minister told the group that the central government was working to ensure good physical and digital connectivity across the state, the statement added.

While talking about his vision for all-round development of the country, he mentioned the endeavour to ensure a house for everyone by 2022.
