REWARI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi concluded up his party’s campaign in Haryana, which will go to polls on October 21, with two rallies where his focus remained on Kashmir.Modi urged the crowd to punish Congress by not voting for it since it questioned the move by his government to abrogate Article 370, which gave Kashmir special status. Terming the Congress stand ‘ Ahirwal ka apmaan (an insult to Ahirwal/as the region is known)’, Modi said the best punishment would be to remove Congress from the political landscape itself.
Modi repeatedly asked the crowd to remember what happened on August 5 this year (when the Centre announced its Kashmir decision).”In 1964, Congress gave a false assurance right in Parliament that Article 370 is temporary and will be repealed within a year. It failed to do that all these years, and now when we finally abrogated it, it (Congress) is seething. (It is) asking what Modi thinks of himself. And it has the audacity to come and seek your votes. This is an insult to Ahirwal,” Modi said.
