He made the appeal during his closing remarks at the third meeting of the Governing Council of NITI Aayog.

"The Prime Minister told all chief ministers to contact Kashmiri youth in their state. He told chief ministers to take care of the interest of Kashmiri students," Niti Aayog Vice Chairman Arvind Panagariya said at a press conference after the meet.

The appeal came days after hoardings appeared in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut city asking Kashmiris to leave the state.

An official statement said that the Prime Minister, noting the invitation given by Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, suggested that various states could organise events there.

"He also seconded the Jammu and Kashmir chief minister's suggestion that states should take interest in the students from her state who are studying in other states. He urged states to reach out to these students from time to time," the statement said.
