History will take note of those who mocked Article 370 removal: PM Modi

BEED: In a blistering attack on the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said history will have a mention of those who ridiculed the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and that Maharashtra now has an opportunity to punish them.

He also expressed confidence that the BJP-led alliance will break all victory records in the October 21 state polls.

Addressing an election rally at Parli in Maharashtra’s Beed district, he said the state polls are a battle between BJP’s “karyashakti” (power of development) and opposition’s “swarthshakti” (selfishness).

“I trust you and your patriotism that you will teach a resounding lesson to those who speak against interests of the country. History will take note of every person who ridiculed the abrogation of Article 370,” Modi said, alleging that the Congress leaders provided “oxygen” to anti-India elements.
