Three Union ministers reach Jammu for outreach programme on Art 370 nullification

JAMMU: Three Union Ministers on Saturday reached here to kick-start a week-long massive awareness of the Centre to apprise people of the potential benefits of the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status after nullification of Article 370, officials said.

The ministers — Arjun Meghwal, Ashwini Choubey and Jitendra Singh — were scheduled to reach here in the morning but their flight could not land here due to “poor visibility” due to fog and was diverted to Srinagar, they said.

After waiting for several hours in Srinagar, the ministers finally reached Jammu this evening to launch the awareness programme under which a total of 36 Union ministers will visit different parts of the Union territory to interact with people during the next six days.  (AGENCIES)
