BJP would scrap Article 370 after forming next govt: Shah
Kailimpong (WB): 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.
