ZANZARKA (GUJARAT) — Union Home Minister Amit Shah on October 13, 2022 blamed India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru for the issues plaguing Kashmir and credited the Narendra Modi government for solving them by removing Article 370.
Speaking at an event to flag off the BJP’s ‘Gaurav Yatra’ in poll-bound Gujarat, Mr. Shah also said the Congress used to taunt his party over the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya but work on it was now in progress.
“Due to the mistake of (first Prime Minister) Jawaharlal Nehru of inserting Article 370, Kashmir was in a mess. It could not be properly integrated with the country. Everybody wanted the removal of Article 370. Prime Minister Narendra Modi removed it in one stroke and completed the integration of Kashmir with the country,” Mr. Shah said.
Incidentally, Mr. Modi had also blamed Nehru for the issues plaguing Kashmir while addressing a gathering in Gujarat earlier this week. — (PTI)
