J&K: PM Modi inaugurates Asia's longest Chenani-Nashri tunnel

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated Asia's longest bi-directional road tunnel, the Chenani-Nashri Tunnel, on the Jammu-Srinagar Highway today.

The tunnel which has been built in a record four years, will reduce travel time between Jammu and Srinagar by at least two hours.

PM Modi, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, and ministers Jitendra Singh and Nitin Gadkari will address a gathering in Battal later.

Commenting on the Chenani-Nashri tunnel, Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said, "it is a state-of-the-art project. It will increase tourism and ensure supply of essential goods.

The inauguration of the Chenani-Nashri is a "proud moment," and will bring about a "revolution" in Jammu and Kashmir, Jitendra Singh said.

Reacting to separatists' call for a strike on the day of the PM Modi's visit, Panthers Party Chairman Harsh Dev Singh said the Hurriyat Conference was acting on Pakistan's orders.

The government should come up with a strong action plan against anti-India elements, he said.
