Addressing a Dussehra rally he also lauded Modi for integrating Jammu and Kashmir with India with the decision to abrogate Article 370. This was Shah’s first public address in Maharashtra since the announcement of dates for the upcoming state polls.
Shah showered praise over Modi for the abrogation of Article 370 and said, “The prime minister integrated Jammu and Kashmir with India. His work should reach every home in this (Marathwada) region. The Modi-led government, which came to power with a thumping majority, revoked Article 370 in just three months of winning the elections. Now, people should ask the opposition why they were unable to revoke Article 370,” Shah said.
Earlier, Shah was received by state rural development minister Pankaja Munde and her sister and BJP MP from Beed Pritam Munde with a procession of vehicles with people waving 370 tricolours symbolising the recent removal of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
