Says 3 generations of 2 families have squeezed out resources of J&K
Launching a “blistering” attack on the dynastic rulers of Jammu & Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he won’t allow the two families of the State to divide India.
“Two families have ruined three generations of Jammu and Kashmir. For better future of State, they need to be voted out,” Modi said here at an impressive public rally in sports stadium, Kathua. Modi was addressing an election rally in support of BJP candidate, from Udhampur-Doda Parliamentary seat, Dr Jitendra Singh.
Responding to the thundering applause from the cheering crowd, Modi said, “Abdullahs and Muftis have destroyed three generations of Jammu and Kashmir. “I will not allow them to divide the country. “Modi na bikta hai, na darta hai aur na jhukta hai”. He said three generations belonging to these two families have squeezed out resources and triggered catastrophe in the State while remaining in power.
Modi also challenged them to bring their entire clan into field. “Bring your chacha, mama, bhai, bhatija, bhanja. Abuse Modi as much as you want but you won’t be able to divide this nation”, he dared.
On the occasion Modi also exposed the politics being played by the troika of Congress, National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party in the State. “What they were doing all these years is now out in the public domain,” Modi said questioning their secret agenda.
“They are openly threatening us to divide India, resort to bloodshed. Pakistan was also saying that we have nuclear weapons. But everyone knows what we did. We will never allow those people to succeed who want a separate Prime Minister for the State. Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India,” he thundered.
Referring to National Conference president Omar Abdullah’s demand of a separate Prime Minister for Jammu and Kashmir, Modi said, “I will never allow ‘Do Nishan, Do Vidhan and Do Pradhan’ (Two constitutions, two flags and two sovereign heads) to rule in our land. Ours motive is that of Syama Prasad Mukherjee,” Modi said. He said the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) commitment and ‘Desh Ka Chowkidar’ (referring to himself) carried the same emotions as Syama Prasad Mukherjee.
Criticising the Indian National Congress, PM Modi said they won’t succeed in ‘disintegrating’ the ‘motherland’ (India). He said that Congress is doing everything to come back to power. “They (Congress) want to do away with the AFSPA but the BJP will never allow them to do so,” Modi said. He said the Armed forces and security agencies operating in the State need the protection of the AFSPA.
The Prime Minister also held Congress responsible for the migration of Kashmiri Pandits.
“It was because of Congress flawed policies that Kashmiri Pandits had to flee from the State,” the PM said.
Congress and their friends were so worried about their vote bank that they overlooked the atrocities on Kashmiri Pandits”. Modi, however, went on to promise that under his Government, Kashmiri Pandits will return to their land. “The BJP is committed to bring the Kashmiri Pandits back to their land”.
Reaching out to the large percentage of refugees staying in the State, Modi said, “We’re also making efforts to pass a law to provide citizenship to families which have come here helplessly from Pak & believe in’Ma Bharti’. He said come May 23 when BJP will form next Government at the Centre we will try and pass this law to provide citizenship rights to these people.
Modi also slammed Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh for skipping an event on Saturday to pay respects to the victims of Jallianwala Bagh massacre. “He boycotted the event. Do you know why? Because he was busy in bhakti of Congress parivar. He went to Jallianwala Bagh with naamdar but didn’t find it right to attend event with the Vice-President. This is the difference between Rashtrabhakti & Parivar bhakti,” Modi said.
He said, “I have known Captain Amarinder Singh for a long time. I have never raised a question on his patriotism. I can understand the kind of pressure which must have been put on him for such parivar bhakti.”
Referring to surge in support of BJP across the country, Modi said, “The surveys are showing that the BJP will get three time more than the number of seats the Congress gets in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.”
Giving credit to the voters of Jammu and Baramulla parliamentary constituencies, Modi said, “You have proven the strength of democracy in India, in the first phase of elections. By coming out to vote in huge numbers in Baramulla and Jammu, you have given a befitting reply to the terrorist leaders, opportunists & people in ‘mahamilawat’ (grand adulteration).”
