New Delhi: Kashmiri Pandits who wish to go back to the Valley and settle there will be facilitated with all necessary resources by the government, Union Minister Arun Jaitley said on Saturday.

"There has been clarity in this government regarding many problems and we have even allocated money. Our Kashmiri Pandit brothers who want to go back and settle in the Kashmir Valley... the government will provide resources for them.

"Whatever is needed for them to live there, we will construct it," he said.

Addressing the BJP's National Council meeting here, Jaitley also said that the party understood the importance of the country's pilgrimage centres and assured that the government will work with the states to construct ghats on river banks.

The BJP-led government is also taking steps to boost tourism, he said.
