Jammu and Kashmir has a lot of hydel projects under construction and there is paln for worlds largest Solar power project in Ladakh.


Not many will know but there are Astronomical observatory in Ladakh and it’s a place is stunning.

Indian Kashmir is fight with terrorists since many years although there are many progress has done in compare with  POK. In POK,there are no problem of terrorists still there are no progress.

 Indian Kashmir has steady supply to power but POK has no steady source of power and hospitals,etc are totally left on their own.

India does not suppess press freedom in Kashmir  even if they have people who show Pak flags and IS flags but journalism in POK is a fatal job. Not much news comes out of that area, like ever.

In short, it can be said that POK is behind Indian Kashmir and its main cause is that the ideology of India is evolution oriented while region of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir is used as a centre of terrorism by the Pakistan.

Jai Hind🇮🇳Jai Bharat
