Taking a dig at the opposition parties, Shah said, “Today’s rally in Jammu and Kashmir, Modi…Modi’s slogan is a reply to those who used to say that if Article 370 is removed, there will be fire and there will be blood. Rivers will flow.
Would it have been possible to get tribal reservation if Articles 370 & 35A were not removed? With their removal now, minorities, Dalits, tribals & Paharis will get their rights: Union Minister Amit Shah at a public rally in Rajouri
He Said that, Hadn’t you wanted a medical college in Rajouri? PM Modi has delivered this, now students don’t have to go far for medical education.
“Backwards, Dalits, Adivasis and hills are going to get their rights here by removing Article 370 and 35A”, He added.
However, Shah also lashed out at the three main regional parties of Jammu and Kashmir. Shah said, three families in Jammu and Kashmir had left no stone unturned to indulge in corruption. Today Modi ji is bearing the full cost of health up to five lakhs to 27 lakh families of the entire Jammu and Kashmir, what did these three families give in 70 years?
Shah first reached the temple of Vaishno Devi at 10 am on Tuesday. Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and Union Minister Jitendra Singh were also present with him here. After this, the foundation stone of an Eklavya Model Residential School was laid in Rajouri itself.
Shah is on a three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir.
