PM Modi to address nation at 8pm

Agency News

New Delhi, Aug 8 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation in a special broadcast at around 8pm on Thursday, a tweet from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said. Modi's special broadcast through All India Radio and Doordarshan could be related to government's new initiatives in Jammu and Kashmir as the Centre has made the Article 370 inoperative in the northern state.

Parliament has also passed a Bill creating Union Territory for the Ladakh region without legislature while 'Kashmir and Jammu regions' have been given Union Territory status with a legislature. Home Minister Amit Shah has, however, said in Parliament that Jammu and Kashmir statehood status will be maintained when the situation is 'normal' again.UNI
