As campaigning for the Assembly polls in Maharashtra and Haryana came to an end on Saturday evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked the Congress, alleging that their wrong policies destroyed the nation and injustice was continuously done with Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing a gathering in Sirsa in Haryana, Modi one again attacked the Congress for its stand on Article 370. Modi said that Article 370 was a temporary provision, but Congress never had the courage or the intention to remove it.
“I ended this temporary provision. When you made me permanent for five years, why would I allow this temporary thing,” he asked.
Due to problems in Kashmir, four lakh Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes in the valley, the Prime Minister said.
He also attacked the Congress on the Kartarpur Corridor issue, saying for 70 years the devotees had to seek ‘darshan’ of the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara using binoculars.
He said the inability to bring Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara in the Indian territory during Partition was a mistake for which the country has paid a heavy price.
