‘PM showed Pak its place’

Jamtara (Jharkhand), Sept 18

Home Minister Amit Shah today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi showed Pakistan its place by abrogating Articles 370 and 35A and established that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India.

Shah also said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi should tell people of Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Haryana, when he goes there, whether he was with the decision to abrogate Article 370. The Assembly elections are due in these states this year.

Addressing a public meeting after launching the BJP’s ‘Johar Jan Ashirwad Yatra’, the BJP chief said his party stood in favour of removing Article 370 ever since it had been there, and asked why the Congress felt a “stomach ache” following its annulment.

Chief Minister Raghubar Das, Union Tribal Affairs minister Arjun Munda and Bihar minister Nand Kishore Yadav, who is BJP’s in charge of Jharkhand, were present on the occasion. Making a scathing attack at the Congress, he said the party had also opposed and sought evidence after surgical strike. “They (Congress) should tell the people which direction they want to go,” he added. — PTI
