184 Billion Rs spent for Chenab bridge project, made in Kashmir which is the highest railway bridge project in World
(Height 360 Metre, Breath 450 Metre).
POK: There is no functional railway system in POK. So it is very difficult to reach POK
from any other states of Pakistan.
The first cable-stayed bridge in North India at Bansoli, Jammu and Kashmir.
highest bridge is coming up in Jammu and Kashmir
There is also plan to build a new expressway from New Delhi to Katra
42000 Cr allocated for Highway and Tunnel construction in J&K under PM’s development package.
Four Lane Srinagar-Jammu National
Highway. The 10.9 km long tunnel on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway is testament to the development of roads in Indian side of Kashmir. Whereas all highway projects in Pakistan are constructed by China.
The Chenani-Nashri tunnel built at a cost of INR 3720 Cr, Length: 9.2 km is one of the longest tunnels. No such tunnel exists in POK. The tunnel will save fuel worth nearly Rs 100
Cr in a year and reduces the travel time between the two-state capitals of Jammu and Srinagar by more than two hours.

In J&K 511
bridge constructions are in progress.
Energy: Jammu and Kashmir has a lot of hydel projects under construction and the world’s
largest solar power project is in Ladakh.
Apart from all the above fact, Indian Kashmir has steady power supply but POK has no
steady source of power and hospitals, etc are totally left to survive on their own.
India does not suppress press freedom in Kashmir
even if they have people who show Pak flags and IS flags but journalism in POK is a fatal job.
In short, it can be said that POK is
far 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 Pakistan.
The definition of a failed
state is a political body that has disintegrated to a point where the basic conditions and responsibilities of a sovereign government no longer function properly. Likewise, when a nation weakens and it’s standard of living declines, it introduces the
possibility of governmental collapse. If contrasted with the situation in Pakistan, on the mostly all levels, one can declare that Pakistan is a failed state.
All these appalling statistics suggest that maybe it’s time that Pakistan should start focusing on their chaotic internal affairs instead of continuing age-old mindless tradition of showing fake solidarity with Kashmir.
As a part of the solidarity day, a one-minute silence is observed at 10 am local time in honor of the dead. The day is not far when Pakistan will
have to observe a permanent silence in memory of its dead nation.
