Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday slammed the Abdullahs and Muftis, saying two families “ruined” three generations of Jammu and Kashmir and he will not allow them to “divide” India.
The prime minister was referring to NC leader Omar Abdullah’s demand for a separate prime minister for Jammu and Kashmir.
The Abdullah and Mufti families have “ruined” three generations in the state. They laid seize to the state for three generations. For the better future of the state, they need to be voted out, he told a public rally here.
The bright future of Jammu and Kashmir can be ensured only after their departure. They can bring their entire clan into the field, can abuse Modi as much as they want but they won’t be able to divide this nation, the prime minister said.
Campaigning for Minister of State in PMO Jitendra Singh, who is seeking re-election from Udhampur Lok Sabha seat, the prime minister said people in Jammu and Kashmir voted in large numbers in the first phase of polls and “rattled” terrorist leaders, opportunists and demoralised the “mahamilavat” alliance.
Modi said, “You have proven the strength of democracy in India, in the first phase of elections.”
Lashing out at the Congress, the prime minister said, “Congress had been infected with germs. The grand old party’s manifesto promises that AFSPA will be removed from the state if they come to power to demoralise the security forces”.
“Can a patriot speak like this? Shouldn’t our security forces have a safety net,” he asked people at the rally.
Modi accused the Congress of politicising the Jallianwala Bagh Centenary. (PTI)
