Speaking recently at a rally in Jalgaon for the BJP’s campaign ahead of the Maharashtra Assembly polls, PM Modi, in a very fervent public address, presented a challenge to the nay saying opposition parties- mainly the INC and the NCP to include reinstatement of Article 370 in their manifestos and also asking them to “stop shedding crocodile tears” over the revocation of the constitutional provision granting special status to the state.

Talking of the BJP’s unprecedented action to do away with the article, Mr. Modi reminded the public how, under the pretext of this provision, abnormal conditions had persisted in Kashmir for more than 40 years where women and Dalits had been systematically denied rights in Jammu and Kashmir. He also reasserted the significance of this move from a national security standpoint by claiming that the area of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh was “not just a piece of land but a strategic region vital to the country’s security.” Modi also went ahead to assure the public that it would take the Centre not more than four months to restore normalcy to Kashmir.

Expressing his disappointment over the naysayers in the opposition, Modi said how unfortunately, some political parties and their leaders (mainly Congress NCP) are playing politics over the abrogation of Article 370 trying to solicit votes in Maharashtra. He also went ahead and challenged the Opposition to clarify their stance on Article 370 before the public of Maharashtra given they had the courage for the same.

He further reiterated his faith in the public by saying that the public would “never let any political entity roll back the momentous step taken by the BJP…. which further stands as evidence that there is no gap between the words and deeds of the BJP.”
