Union Home Minister Amit Shah addressed a massive public meeting in Rajouri district on Tuesday, the second day of his three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir. Shah said that after the abrogation of Article 370, the real rule of the people has come in Jammu and Kashmir. Terrorist incidents have also reduced and youth have been given laptops not stones. Everyone has got their rights. He said that if this Article 370 is not removed then there was no possibility of getting any rights to anyone. In true sense, Jammu and Kashmir has now got freedom and freedom from terror. In the coming time, J&K will progress in every field along with development.
Home Minister Shah alleged that in the last 70 years, three families here did nothing. Opponents used to say that if 370 is removed, rivers of blood will flow and no one will be found to lift the tricolor, whereas after the abrogation of Article 370, the real rule of the people has come in Jammu and Kashmir. Shah said, I want to assure you that no one can snatch the rights of the people in the Modi government, whereas for the opponents democracy meant only one's family. The world salutes the Indian Army for its work, but the hill community has stood in every danger against the country, so the army salutes it. He said that the way has been cleared for the Gujjar-Bakkarwals to get their due and now it is the turn of the Pahari community. Shah said, I assure that this will not harm the rights of Gujjar-Bakkarwals. Jammu and Kashmir has now progressed on the path of development. We have brought many development and public interest schemes along with IITs and IIMs in Jammu and Kashmir. He said that this is just the beginning. In the coming time, J&K will progress in every field along with development.
