BJP would scrap Article 370 after forming next govt: Shah

Hitting out at opposition leaders for being "unhappy" with air strikes on terror camps, BJP president Amit Shah on Thursday said his party would remove Article 370 from Kashmir "after forming the next BJP government" at the Centre.

Criticising West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for questioning the Balakot air strikes in a bid to "appease" the minority vote bank, Shah asked her to come clean on whether she, too, wants a separate PM for Kashmir, just like her ally and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah.

"Mamata Banerjee and opposition leaders are unhappy with the air strikes. They are questioning it just to appease their minority vote bank. But, I want to say it loud and clear that we won't allow such forces to win.

"We would remove Article 370 from Kashmir after forming the next BJP government at the Centre," he said, while campaigning for Darjeeling Lok Sabha candidate Raju Singh Bisht.

Article 370 of the Constitution grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

Shah also slammed Banerjee for trying to mislead the masses on the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

The BJP government would bring NRC across the country and grant citizenship to "each and every Hindu refugee" of the country, he asserted.
